Pictures can be downloaded over and over again. Have you looked anywhere else? How about in the "my pictures" folder? When you connect your camera to the computer, does it automatically connect to Photo Gallery or does it now just appear as a removable drive in "my computer"? If that's the case, all you have to do is double-click on that and your picture files will appear. You can create a folder on your desktop, select all the pictures and drag and drop them in the folder. From there, you can send them to Photo Gallery.
If your using window, you already have it, at least with vista. It is called window Photo gallery. Also your camera's manufacture has downloads for your camera, you can use adobe photoshop, which is downloadable, any electronics store also has these. Some are more inclusive and cost more than others but a simple program is all you need to retrieve the picture. On windows phot gallery, open the program and click on the header above the blank spot named file, then click on imprt photos from camera. If your camera is hooked to the computer it will recognize it and down load your pictures into the gallery
If your camera is not relatively new and you're running Vista, Vista may have problems seeing it. Unfortunately, this can't be corrected as Canon did not update the drivers for Vista for many of its older cameras. But there exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos. Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. 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:
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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
I finally figured it out. Somehow I had messed with the Autoplay settings uploading pics the last time I guess. Anyways, if you experience this problem, check this out first and see if it fixes it for you before you do anything else:
What if the import dialog box doesn't appear?
If the dialog box prompting you to import your pictures doesn't appear when you connect the camera to your computer, AutoPlay might be turned off. You can import your pictures using Windows Photo Gallery instead. Here's how:
Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.
On the toolbar, click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, choose your camera from the list of devices, and then click Import. If you prefer, you can turn on AutoPlay or set AutoPlay to automatically import pictures from a digital camera. For more information, see Change AutoPlay Settings.
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
relisys is at the moment in administartion, so there is not likely to be any drivers for Vista, but i think if you connect your cam to the pc it will find your cam and you should be able to see it in my computer as a seperate removoble drive and explore the folders in the camera memory or it should ask if you wish to transfer pictures to the picture gallery.
