This camera doesn't have a USB port - you must use a firewire port.

Canon PC1045/PowerShot A300 I need an Owner's Manual and a USB cable. I need an Owner's Manual and a USB Cable.

You can download a manual and order a USB cable from the manufacturer's web site at

Before you buy another USB cable, consider this: 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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

I have a Canon SD 790IS and I am having difficulty

Try pluggin it in a different usb port. The SD should use a memory card right? (SD card) So why don't you try SD + card reader?

VHS to Canon MV450i transfer or direct to Mac

The MV450i has an AV input. So get a lead to go from the AV out from the VCR to the AV input at the front RHS of the lens (3 pin stereo jack socket behind grey cover - the lead was supplied with the camera). Go to the buttons behind the screen - press the line in button - camera goes to pause. Se the VCR playing - press the play / focus button to start recording to the tape.. Import to imovie as you normally do.

Cant find my manual!

most cameras plug into a USB port. But you may need the software for your camera to upload the pictures too!

Canon camera downloading

An update from Mccoyb:

I have to take back some of the previous conclusions about the problem being with the Canon Camera. I based conclusion on the belief that I'd previously had the same problems on a different computer. I think that is now incorrect.

Adding to previous comments above:
I pulled the memory card out of my camera and into an SD CardReader. Plugged the cardreader into the USB port where the camera had been. Again, problems. I switched USB ports. Still, problems reading the card reliably just as the camera had done.

I took the same USB cable to another computer. This time, I could access all data flawlessly on BOTH the cardreader the camera. On this computer, no Canon software had been installed, so I used Microsoft's tool (automatically pops up when camera turned on) to copy the pictures to the hard drive.

I'm starting to think my USB drivers on one computer are somehow completely hosed up. So many different hardware USB ports should not simultaneously start failing. In addition, I tried a THUMB DRIVE and it had very slow performance and problems recognizing the drive letter. However, I tried an external 500 GB hard drive, and the drive letter came up without any problems.

Something may have changed with a Microsoft update that caused USB drivers and/or handling of the USB ports to change. Either that, or there is a virus impacting only the USB ports.

Anyhow, I don't believe it's the camera now or the memory cards.

Where is port to connect USB cable?

I'm sorry you're having trouble with this. I have put together a picture that shows where the mini-USB plug is supposed to be attached to the camera. I hope it helps. This picture actually shows plugging the AV cable into the receptical, but right behind it is the mini-USB port. This is where you connect the USB cable. It looks like you have to lift the flap on the corner to reveal the plugs.
