Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel.
Do a "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.
That should fix it, good as new.
If that is not a possible option, try uninstalling. (if there is no "Change" and 'repair program') then Run the normal uninstall program.

SOURCE: communication error when uploading pictures on computer

I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.

The sd1000 manual says that you will get this error when you have too many pictures on your memory card (aprox 1000). I am not sure how many I had on my 2GB card but it was a lot. I deleted about 50 - 100 pictures and then it started working again and the new pictures downloaded to the computer.

contact problem or lens diaphram blades problem. First try to clean the contact with the pencil eraser. If the problem isn't solved. send it to canon it should cost you about 100.00 to repar.

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera's come equipped with the installation cds for their software. Make sure these are installed properly. The reason that the camera is stating "communication error" is that it cannot properly communicate with the computer, so make sure that your USB works properly (ie. no bite marks on the wire, it's not loose, you get the drift), that you're not using a USB hub (or if you are, it's capable of sending and receiving packets at a high speed) and that your camera is charged. Usually this can be resolved with changing the USB, so try another usb if you have one lying around, and make sure that it's connected properly to the camera and the computer.

hey,
I've searched just now the web for answers for the same problem (thus finding your question). I also have Canon Powershot SX 120 is.

In the end I found in the Australian Canon support site that stated that "communication error" means you just have too many pictures on your camera card.
They suggest, as many people here on this site recommend, using a card reader rather than connecting the camera straight to the computer.
But I had an urgency to download pictures now, so I just erased some old pictures that I didn't need and it worked. I had to go under 3000 pics.

hope this helps!

Gilad,
Israel.

Can't download pictures!


The problem might be the computer is not communicating with the software program. You can try to use another software from a photo smart or kodak easy share.

The easiest way also go to a store get your pictures on a CD, then download from the CD to the computer.

Take care

Canon zoombrowser Ex downloading problem


Try updating the Zoombrowser software.

If you have a connection to the camera, go into my computer and get images directly off the camera using scanner and camera wizard, microsoft's default program. This will at least allow you to transfer your images until you can resolve the software problem.

If you have no connection to the camera via your computer, you need to try some other troubleshooting steps to get a connection. I will post those below in the next post.
