Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Trouble downloading pics

Have had canon a70 for 3 years. lately having trouble downloading pics. when cable is connected to camera, pop up message says

Server Busy

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.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Trouble downloading pics from my Coolpix L100


Are your batteries fully charged? Direct Camera to PC transfer uses a lot of power. Some early L100s could not use rechargable batteries - unless you downloaded new firmware fron Nikon. That needs a card-reader. Once you have a card-reader, use this to download the pics, so that the PC supplies all the power.

ASSUMING it worked just fine before AND you have made no changes to the PC software (Microsoft Update ? ) then it sounds like to bad cable .. however this does seem very unlikely ... see if you can check by borrowing a cable from a friend ... or take the Camera back to the shop where you bought it and ask them to help you by showing you how to download pics ...(do NOT pick a 'spotty youth' on a busy Saturday to do this .. look for older staff on a nice slow Tuesday afternoon to get more co-operation :-) )
