Can't download images from Canon SD1100 to computer

I installed the download softerware. The appropriate icons appear under programs, etc. However nothing happens when I connect the camera to the computer via the usb cable. I set the mode switch to playback and press the power button. After that nothing happens.

    Thanks for answering. I though I had gotten an answer to you earlier this afternoon, It's twirling in space somewhere. I followed the directions and there was now apparent indication that anyting had happened. However, I actually did find the pictures in "My Pictures." So, it worked. I was expecting to see something.



    I appreciate your help. (I may be back!)

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Sounds like your reading right from the manual. <grin>
Try this.
Connect the camera to the computer via the usb cable. Set the mode switch to playback and press the power button, then:
on your pc go to Start>All Programs (or Programs)>Canon Utilities and find Canon Window. Double click on it and it should fire the program. Let me know if you have any problems. If not, feel free to rate my solution.

    You didn't leave me a comment. What happened when I advised you to click on the program from the start menu?

Digital camera solution software download for sd1100 IS


You may download the software from here.

You don't need to use Canon's software. 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.

I am transferring images to my computer, which I have done before. Now I am getting the message "Save folder not found?" Have I moved it? Do I need to create it? How? Where? Please help....


My solution is to unistall your current canon software that holds 15 canon components in your computer. You will find them under system task and select remove programs. After you have uninstalled the program, reinstall your "Canon Digital Camera Disk" and follow their prompts. Now you should be able to transfer images again as per normal.
I have answered this question in detail under another question postered by "whitecar631" under canon "save folder not found" canon sd1100.
This worked for me, but I don"t know how to prevent it happening again. I do know the day I lost all "my pictures", I had previously deleted a large file in my documents. I also experienced "save folder not found" when I tried to transfer images from my canon ixus 100.
I was lucky enough that I had all of my original SD Flash Media Cards, so could transfer all my photos again. I have since put all my photos into labelled folders instead of dates and images.
Hope this helps, it appears to be a problem in the canon program. Joyce
