USB Cable is shutting off my computer

I have had my camera for 2 years without problems. This morning when I plugged the USB cable in to my computer to upload photo, the computer immediately turned off, and though there was a power outage. When I tried again, the same problem occurred.

Is it the camera or the cable?

Almost positive it would be the camera. you might want to look around in local news and reportrs and stuff about power lines in the area to see if anyone else has the same problem. if not, take it in a shop

Canon G12 does not connect to USB cable, gives error E41


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.

Camera will now show on monitor what it is aimed at.To shut off,close all screens,and click on icon tray and shut usb device if necessary.

Downloading digital pictures to the computer


Try next to locate the problem:
1. Connect other equipment to the same USB port on your PC to see if it works, if it is OK
2. Replace the cable
If that don't help, the problem is probably in the camera.
