Have a canon digicam (IXY 800IS) and used to transfer all the images taken in the camera to my thinkpad, but last week to my surprise this isn't happening. What could be the issue, have all the software installed. Thanks

Re: Transfer Images from Digicam to Thinkpad
Remove the camera software
Then plug the camera in, and if it is a 2000 or XP Windows Scanner/Camera Wizard should sort it.
The software supplied with camera are most ties more trouble than a help
My advise is always leave the disk in the box and let Windoze do the work

If it's an S500 (IXY Digital 500), then get it fixed for free by Canon. This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Try doing this direct transfer in your computer
1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera.
2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power. The camera and computer will be able to communicate.
3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow]
4. Download the images. * Download the images using the camera or the computer. * By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder.
** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another.** Issue on the operating system compatibility.
Just hook it up to your PC using a USB connector provided along with your Digicam. On first use your PC automatically installs driver for your digicam connection, once done open Windows explorer and browse on which Drive your Digicam happens to be. From there you can copy/delete/preview images and videos on your PC.
As a part of the download process, most cameras and transfer applications ask you if you want to delete the images off of your camera once they've successfully transferred to your PC. Check the preference setting of the application you're using to transfer the images to your PC. Best way to check is to transfer images to your PC, disconnect the transfer cable and see if the images are still on your camera.
hmmm...i have a kodak digicam and i happen to have the same prob, when i record videos (which is one of its features) there is no sound when i play it in the camera... but ofcourse it says in the manual that there is sound ... i got tired of solving it so i just used it for photos... when the card is already full, i transferred it to my pc and guess what... the videos i took from the digicam has a sound... well i dunno why it doesnt play in the cam but its okay i an always transfer it to the pc... try to transfer it to ur pc and check if the video has sound....
Simply plug it into the PC.
If the PC is an ME/2000/XP it should recognise the camers and put up the camera/scanner wizard.
Come back tell us what you get,
You do not need the software from the CD- if it is in- Take it out.
