I use the direct download cable that came with my Canon G9, but the Canon program does not let me get the photos into a selected file. I am using the FastStone program for filing and editing etc. Help! Louise

You can download Canon software from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_pro_series/powershot_g9#DriversAndSoftware
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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and especially large video files. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:
Are you using the camera to upload the photos? I recommend that you get a SDHC reader(USB) and copy the files off of the SD card onto your harddrive. it is a common problem that RAW images cannot be read by windows or certain programs. Photoshop CS3 and later are able to read and open the RAW images from this camera if your "camera raw" portion of adobe is current. it is good practice anyway to load your photos directly from the SD card. I had a G9 since it first came out and now i have a G10--i have never even attempted to upload from the camera. don't let this discourage you from shooting RAW because it is the primary reason in my opinion for owning a G9 or G10. Let me know if this does not answer your problem...dj
Can you use a memory card reader? Connect directly from the camera may not be allowing you to specify which pictures you can download. You can get an SDHC memory card reader from OfficeMax and pretty much anywhere else. If you get a memory card reader make sure it is compatible with SDHC cards. If you get a 4GB or higher card you might not be able to use it with some other card readers.
Yes, that would help. It sounds like the computer is no longer communicating with the camera correctly, and that would be due to a glitch in the software. Most likely one of the files got corrupted for no apparent reason, and if you just do a full reinstall it should resolve your problem.
If you have a memory card reader in your PC, you could also try reading that directly from ZoomBrowserEX after reinstalling if the camera still doesn't connect. If you cannot connect both ways after reinstalling, then there may be something wrong with your PC. If you can access the memory card directly after reinstalling the software, then the cable between your computer and camera is to blame.
There are two ways to solve this problem. I am assuming you are simply clicking on the pictures and choosing "edit" or double clicking on the pictures and they are opening in "Vista picture editing" The first way to overcome this is by opening the desired program first (in this case canon's photo editor) and then choose open and find the desired photos. The other way is to set the file type association in vista so that RAW programs open with the canon program see below for step by step: 1. Click Start 2. Click default programs on the black bar 3. Click Associate a file type or protocol with a program 4. Find the file types you want to open automatically in your canon editing program (RAW .jpg etc) 5. Click once at the top of the page click change program 6. A new window will open, if it does not list the correct program click browse at the bottom of the window and find your editor in it's folder. 7. Select the desired program by double clicking 8. Click OK 9. Click close 10. Test the new file association by double clicking a RAW file or one of the other file types and see if it loads into the correct program.
The final (and this is simply my plug for open source programs) solution would be to try something like GIMP (it is a photo editing suite developed under linux but adapted for windows) you can search for it on google.
If you are having trouble with any of these steps please post a comment and I will try and add some clarification. Hope this helps
Ok..well what ya need to do is remember if it ever happens again.. simply open up Task Manager and select the errant program and "End Task" this will shut down most errant programs... now for the files that cannot be deleted... one could change the protected file "Attributes" R,A,S,H. However a much easier soloution is to use a program that will delete anything. Try downloading and using this program from this link ---->
Another great one is Zap.exe for "DOS" use..
