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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

If the camera is not recognized on any other computers it's hooked up to either, your best bet is to take the SD card out, put it in a card reader, and plug that into your computer. If the card still works, you should be able to pull all of your pictures off--probably way faster than using the data cable too.
If your card is an SDHC card, make sure your reader can read SDHC. Most laptops made in the last 3 years have card readers, but they might not read SDHC cards. You should be able to pick one up for $5-10 at the store.

I just recently got a mac laptop and i have had my canon powershot sd1000 but i dont know how to upload my pictures? do i have to download something?


Get a card reader/writer, save your time and effort. No software will be needed for this.
Then upload your files and use your software to edit or upload to the web or whatever.

CANON SD1000 can't TURN vertical downloaded video into horizontal


If you have windows movie maker (its part of the default installation of windows XP) you can use the rotate filter in the video effects tools.
Import your video into movie maker and select "Video Effects" under tools.  Scroll through the various effects until you find the "rotate 90".  Apply the effect and save the video.
I hope this helps!

reinstall your camera software or check you system information tool. The driver maybe on your system and just needs to be reinstalled. If you don;t have your camera software, you can probably download it from the manufacturer's website.

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.

Find cd software download for canon powershot SD1000 I lost my original cd


Which operating system do you have? Windows? mac? if it is windows which version? You should not need a lot of software to use the camera as you should be able to connect the camera and see the pictures (mac os 10.4 and windows XP/vista)
You can try going here to see if any of the software will help you:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=224&modelid=14901#DownloadDetailAct

You will have to select your operating system before it will show you any software otherwise you will only get the manuals.
Hope that helps
