Question about Canon PowerShot S80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Bad connection with PC

I have a power shot S80 and Windows XP. Since a few weeks, when I connect my camera via usb, the system replies "..Impossible to check in your camera. Control the connection to the camera, then retry".
I've just unistalled and istalled again the sw. I've also looked for upgraded drivers, eventually, but I have not found anyone for Win XP.
Could you help me?
Thanks

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

Windows cannot open fileI have SONY DSC W55 cyber shot camera.My laptop is dell inspiron and I am using Windows 8 operating system.When I connect to camera to PC it shows as USB device has connected.


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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

How do I download the pictures off my power shot a520 canon camara? I have it hook up to the usb cord but I still can not get any pictures off it.


Once you have connected the camera to the PC via USB, the pc should identify the camera (on Windows XP and later versions). In case this doesn't happen try re-starting the camera, alternately switch to another USB socket on your PC.
