Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
Have had canon a70 for 3 years. lately having trouble downloading pics. when cable is connected to camera, pop up message says
This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'switch to' to activate the busy program and correct the problem.
have clicked on switch to all it does is open my start menu. Don't understand what its asking me to do. no other programs etc are open foe any of the users. Last time it happened we tried and tried day after day, then left it a few days and suddenly it worked fine. But would love to know whats going on. All help greatly appreciated
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.

Switch to Shutter Prioriy (S) and set the shutter speed to what you want it should be at least 1/60th of a second.
