Question about Canon PowerShot A630 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.

is the camera being recognised by your computer, and have you checked your camera settings and that your memory card doesn't have the lock switch locked so that you can't take images off of the card?

Definitely sounds like you have a bad CCD. There is good news for you though. Canon recognized this particular model's CCD as faulty, and it is under recall! This means they will repair or replace your camera free of charge.

Actually, you don't need software for an USB cable too. If you have Windows XP, it sees your camera right away and would ask you what to do with that device.

Try deleting a few hundred pics....I had about 3039...deleted about 200, and now the error went away, able to upload pics from the camera to computer.....possibly 3000 is the maximum number of pics the Camera Window software will allow ?

Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.
