    Sometimes a simple update on the computer will ruin an otherwise perfect setup. Direct from camera to computer downloading is fraught with bugs. Have you tried using a card reader? They almost always solve the problem and work fast too. Only $10-20. Also get free software Picasa3 from Google. It downloads and organizes your images great plus lots of other goodies. You'll love it.

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 such as Picasa.

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

I can't get pictures from camera to pc. display me no pictures on camera.


There are various things that could be wrong, such as low batteries, incorrect settings, no memory card in camera, etc. I would suggest as an easy start that you download the "Powershot A460 User Guide Basic" (a .pdf file) from the Canon website and read pages 24-30. You probably do NOT need to install any software on your computer if you are using a PC. The computer should recognize the camera when connected to a USB port, and open the Scanner and Camera Wizard by default.

Here's a link to the CanonUSA page where you will find the A460 basic user manual. It is the fourth (4th) item down, under "Brochures & Manuals."

Hi I have a Canon A460 which has worked fine. My problem is with the transfer of images to the computer. I get either a message saying camera not found or I get a message saying camera detected with a box ...


Well, obviously your registry has changed and your camera is no longer recognized. No problem....just get a card reader and use it in place of your camera. That's what the pros do.

I have a Canon A460 that does this every now and then. Usually if I removed the batteries and put them back in, it does the trick. If that doesn't work, and the camera will stay on, try resetting it. Click Menu> Tools and then scroll all the way to the last option Reset All. Good luck!
