Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
I have not been able to download my pictures from my camera to my computer for several months. When I first got the camera everything worked well. I have tried everything the manual says. When I connect the camera and computer I don't get any windows coming up to tell me what to do. Help!
I expect that somewhere down the line the camera was plugged in and the message was ignored, and told to never show this again. Assuming you are using windows you can do one of two things:
1). Click start button, computer, and look at the devices with removable storage. Hopefully your camera is there. If not we have another problem. you can then browse the camera just like any other disk with folders, find your photos and copy/cut/move them into your pictures folder.
2). We can change the settings of your computer so that it will prompt you what to do each time the camera is plugged in.
In order to do this open control panel, select classic view on the left side. Click on default programs icon, and select change auto play settings. Scrolling to the bottom should show devices connected to the computer. you can then use the pull down box beside the cameras name to set what you want to do each time it is plugged in.
Hope this helps. If I am way off base here please let me know.
