Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera can't upload pictures

I have the Canon sd500 and every time the uploader usb cable gets removed from the computer, I have difficulties getting pictures to upload when I plug the cable back in. I'm using windows XP. The camera symbol shows up on the bottom right, but it doesn't have the little blue light over the top of it like it does when it's about to bring up the screen that starts the upload process. Also, when it's normally working, as soon as I turn the camera on (in play mode), the screen will go blank so the list of uploading options can appear on the screen. Now the screen doesn't go blank--it just freezes on the picture. How do I get it to fully recognize the camera? Thanks for any assistance.

You can reinstall the software. But a really good solution is a card reader. They are cheap and reliable and don't need any software. When you plug it in, it will install itself, and then when you put your car in the reader its like an extra little hard drive in your computer. Just drage the files or folders where you want them on your computer. Less wear and tear on the camera is always good and then you don't need to plug in power or waste batteries if you don't have a dock.

Canon SX130. I get "communication error" when trying to upload photos


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

What mode should camera be in to upload pictures does it matter if you connect usb cable to ccamera or computer first


It should be in playback mode. It doesn't matter if you plug in camera first or computer first but it does matter that you have to first install the proper drivers for your camera on your computer. The proper drivers is on the CD that came with your camera. Install that first before connecting your camera to your computer. Personally, I don't like to connect camera to computer unless I'm doing an update to the firmware. I would suggest buying a USB memory card reader if your computer/laptop doesn't have one already. Then I upload my pictures by removing the memory card from the camera and plug into the USB card reader. Best of luck.

There is a lot of incompatability between cameras and computers. The best way to get around it completely is get a card reader.Remove the SD card from the computer and insert into the card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Good luck. This always works.

first thing, you have to have the camera in playback (The way to view images on the camera) ((If the lens goes out you have i wrong))
If you have XP / Vista it will come up in my computer and you can copy and past images / videos from it that way. Else Scanner n camera wizzard in XP will pull images off
