Question about Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I tried different card and it worked. I'm waiting to contact SanDisk to solve the problem. Hate to lose all the pictures. Thanks for your help.

Error 99 is a general fatal error.
which includes the problems above mentioned by Q4SteveB but also many others.
It can be caused by a dicky shutter, problems with the CF card interface.
If cleaning and trying a different lens has not worked. Not definitive but as a rule of thumb...
If it letting you take one picture then giving error 99.. and the picture is saved to the card (but may just be black) this is most likely the shutter needs replacing..
If it takes a picture and gives error 99 but there is no picture on the card or the picture is 0KB its a CF interface problem.
If you get an error 99 when you plug in the USB its a USB interface error, you can try a different cable but unfortunately in most cases if another lens or cable wont work it needs repair

The solution is to change the small 'date/time' battery. You can have the regular batteries as charged as you like, it won't make any difference. The tiny date/time battery is in the same compartment as the regular batteries, on the opposite side of the hinge. Extract it with a fingernail, it is situated on the left hand wall of the battery compartment (when the camera is inverted and the compartment open).

try either a card reader (rather than connecting your camera to the computer) or try erasing photos. it seems that it happend when the card is too full. i had the problem and had to go under 3000 photos and then it worked.
hope this helps.
