Question about Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I CANT DOWNLOAD THE PHOTOS ON MY PC!

Hi, I have Windows 2000 and Im trying to download pictures to my PC for the first time...I have installed the software but when i connect the camera to the pc (yes its in playmode) and when it connects an Event box comes up and says to choose which application to download images. It gives me "Canon Camerawindow", EOS Utilities, Imaging, Lexmark photo, and I think Ulead. My manual says to choose Canon CameraWindow...but when i do, i just get an hourglass by my cursor and nothing ever happens...i have even waited hours. I cant figure out any other way to download my images!! :( i have uninstalled the software and reinstalled , I have tried everything!!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How can I install my s51s without the cd


http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_Compact/Powershot_S_series/PowerShot_S5_IS.aspx?type=download&page=1
I took a look on the site and I sow that only a software for to manage them is available ..and it seam that this is an updater and Im not sure it will work if you do not have the previous one ..but the good news is the lack of drivers...This means your camera is seen by the windows without a need for a driver ..so it has the driver built in windows..and even without this software you will be able to see the pictures into My computer folder under the removable drive ..(it will see the card in the camera or ..the camera itself by name ..Also you can use the windows autoplay wizard to download auto ..or just get in that folder and copy/paste the photos.

Trying to install samsung digimax s500 on laptop operating windows 7. CD software is for windows 98/2000/ME/XP. Any advice?


The camera is probably supported by default in Windows 7.

To find out if this is the case, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.

  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
  • Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
  • Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
  • You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.


Let me know if you have any questions.

I received an Emerson 10 x 25 Digital Camera Binoculars as a gift. I followed all the instructions, installed the drivers and the photoimpression5 from the enclosed disc. The download photo does not work....


Hi Brian,
Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software.
Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'.
Try the following steps:
0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the
menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST"
1 Unplug the camera from the computer
2 Un-install the software.
3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some.
4 Turn the camera OFF.
5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable.
6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected.
7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back
8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted.
It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard" Click on that.
9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you.
10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it
11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails.
If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there.
12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer.
Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop.
One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3.
To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

I have a windows 7, but i lost my cd for the DSC100 cant read my pictures what do i do? thanks


According to the user manual, there were only drivers to support Windows 2000 and Windows XP any way, so no great loss.

The camera is probably supported by default in Windows 7.

To find out if this is the case, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.

  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.

Downloading photos


If you are using Windows XP unplug your camera from your PC and uninstall the Kodak software. You don't need it to transfer photos to your PC. The next time you connect your camera (turn the camera on) to your computer it should recognize it and you can use Windows built in transfer software.

I cant install my daugther's Hannah Pix Micro


Hi Odalys,
Try this solution that was previously posted on FixYa:
______________________________________________________
My daughter just received one of these camera's for her 6th birthday and is extremely excited. I am running Windows XPand was getting the "No pictures on camera" error. I tried downloadingthe drivers for this but that did not work. Here is what I did to getthe camera working:

1) Connect the camera with the provided USB cable.
2) Download the latest driver from the Digital Blue web site: http://digiblue.com/customer-service/downloads/index.html, select the "The Disney Pix Micro Drivers for WIN ME, 2000, XP"
3) Install this driver, this will not enable the camera to work yet.
4) After this driver has installed, go to Control Panel
5) Select System
6) Select the Hardware tab
7) Select Device Manager
8) Find the device in the list (mine said "USB Digital Still Camera"),will probably have the yellow exclamation mark on it saying that it isnot working.
9) Double click the device
10) Select "Reinstall Driver" from the General tab
11) When asked if Windows can connect to Windows Update to search for software, select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
12) Choose "Install the software automatically" and click Next.
13) You should get a message saying the driver for the "DB CIF Cam" hasnot passed the Windows Logo testing, select "Continue Anyway".
14) Click Finish.
15) The first time I did this, I needed to take a picture while the camera was connected to the PC.

After doing this I am able to download the pictures and everything works great.

I hope this helps.

Same problem - no driver


I found this on another site. You have to set the camera itself to Mass Storage mode in order to work with Windows 2000. The steps are below. As soon as I did and plugged the camera back into the USB cable, Picture Project recognized the camera as connected, installed the mass storage driver for it and requested a restart of the PC. Able to access the memory card and download pictures.

On the camera itself, unplug the USB, turn it on and...

Press MENU....
Press ▲▼to choose SETUP...press OK...
Press ▲▼to choose INTERFACE...press OK...
Press ▲▼ to choose USB...press OK...
Press ▲▼to choose MASS STORAGE...press Ok..
Press MENU to exit...
Then plug it back into the USB cable.

Good Luck

Che-ez foxz camera


The Foxz3 drivers aren't configured for Vista (only mentions Windows 98, 2000 and XP on the original box). However, you can grab your pix by treating the Foxz3 as a mass storage device (in MSDC mode - not PC Camera). Worked fine for downloading my daughter's pix onto our Vista laptop. Not so hot for videoclips though.
