Re: downloadin pics

You need to ensure that the drivers are correctly installed, go to the manufacturer's website, download & install the latest drivers, Then go into Device manager, and look for any items in "other devices", delete these devices and try to redetect, (check for changes)

Why does camera close down when I plug USB cable to pc have replaced cable & batteries

As soon as you connect a camera to a computer, the camera shuts down, because it only can act as a "dumb" memory stick.
Only more advanced camera's and special programs allow the camera to be connected and be monitored on a computer.
Nikon has Camera Control Pro 2 for its DSLRs. Only the software is over 100 dollars.

When you have installed Kodak Picture easy software, you can connect the camera to the computer and then after you switch on the camera, you can download the pictures from the camera to the PC.

Canon Powershot A1100 is. When plugged into computer, the computer recognizes that something is there, but then it says "cannot detect camera". Help

This may be happening because you may be connecting it in camera mode. Please switch to the non camera mode, ie, where you see pics on the camera itself. In this mode you can only see pics but cant take any.

Spare cables can be purchased at stores like Walmart, BestBuy, etc. Take your camera with you to get the correct size.

I connect the cable from camera to computer but the computer cant detect the camera. how?

It could be that the cable is faulty, because even if you do not have the drivers installed, it should recognize as a new HW device and ask for installation drivers. (But, each camera has two modes. one to take pics in and the other to view pics in.) Alternatively, you must have the camera in the second mode.

I lost the cable that hooks the camera to the computer.

Just get a multi card reader. It will plug into the a USB slot and show up in MY COMPUTER (PC). It will also allow you to read other types of media cards from other cameras. They are cheap at staples or best buy etc.. Easier to get than the cable. Also faster reading of the card. I have never used the cable to any digital camera.

Pictures cant be viewed says no image-then wont take pics says card full?

try the memory card in a card reader and plug it into a computer. see if the computer can detect the card and the contents in it. if it does detect it then that means there is a problem with the camera not recognizing the card or files in it. if it does not detect it in the computer that means the memory card of the camera is the one having problems.

Uploading pics

I would try another cable. It sounds like that might be your problem. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a card reader.
