    Thanks for responding. I realize I left out some info.

    The camera I just purchased is a Canon Power Shot SX101S. I really like one of it's featurers where I can simply plug the camera into the TV and view the pics that are on the camera's memory chip (i,e, view the pics on the TV instead of a photo album or one of the "picture frame" things").

    Since I have many pics on my computer (Windows XP), I would like to load those pics onto the camera. With those loaded, I could watch even more pics on the TV - like our trip to Europe for example. I

    My users manual says that such is possible. But when I try to do so, it tells me the pics cannot be transferred to the camera. Hence, that is what I would like to learn how to do. Can you assist?

    You will have to clarify your question in order for it to be answered. What is the brand and model name of the product you are asking about? What is it that you want to know how to do?

Jerry, thank you for that clarification!
I am afraid I don't know what software you got bundled with your camera, but I do got a tip for you!
I would recommend that you get a cheap USB 2.0 card reader, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the card reader. Then you can move your pictures to the camera without using canons software, but instead by using Explorer. A cheap USB 2.0 card reader shouldn't be more than around $20-$30.
When the memory card is read with a memory card reader, it will appear as a removable device in Explorer, that you can copy images (and even other files) to and from, just like copying files between any other folders. An added bonus is that the card reader is several times faster than the camera on transferring pictuers to and from the computer.
I hope this helps!

You can download the user manual (English) from:

The following is taken from the manual (page 61):
"Using the UC-E6 USB cable and PictureProject software provided with your camera,
you can transfer photographs and movies to a computer and view them. Before
images can be transferred (copied) to your computer, PictureProject must be
installed. For information on installing PictureProject, see the Quick Start Guide
and the PictureProject Reference Manual (on CD).
You can transfer images to a computer using a wireless LAN and play back the
pictures on computer. See "Wireless Transfer Mode" (c132) for more information."

Or you can use the Windows XP software. Step by step instructions on downloading and installing the software is given in the following website:

Can not find out why it is that the USB connection won't work

Is this camera and its software from the Win98 era? If so it is likely the software is not compatible with XP patch not with standing. Go to Start/Control Panel' Add/Remove software and remove the Polaroid software. Restart the computer. Now simply plug the camera in and go to my computer- XP will put the camera up as another drive You do not need software to upload images in XP.

Camera not recognised

If you have Windoes XP then you do not need to press any key at all to upload images. If the software on the camera CD is loaded into the computer - remove it. Plug the camera into the computer with the computer running switch the camera on ,ensure you have the upload switch set on the camera Let Windows do the rest

Uploading video: help!

Well, I was looking for the name of the software. I don't think you need to reinstall the software, but you need to read the documentation that came with the software. ...................................... There is a better solution to your problem: Buy a card reader that can read your type of camera memory card. Just plug it into your computer's USB port and Windows XP will see the card reader as being another hard drive. Remove the card from your camera, plug it into the reader. Use Windows Explorer to move the photos and video to your computer. You never have to connect the camera to your computer again.
