Wont show up on my computer i want to download the pictures to my computer but it wont show up i have a canon power shot a520


Have you looked in "my computer"? It may show up as a removable drive. If it doesn't, try using a card reader to download your pics.

I lost my canon installation cd what can i d now


Don't worry, you don't really need it to use your camera. Just get a card reader (compact flash or "CF" for your camera) and then you can get the photos off your camera onto your computer easily. You may even be able to plug the camera in with the cable and use the operating system's software to download pictures that way.

I never use the software provided with my powershot anyway. You can use a free alternative like Picassa (google it.) The only thing you might lose is the ability to stich panoramas together.

Need new disk to download on new computer powershot A75 3.2 mega pixels


You can either order another one through Canon for $19.95 I believe.

Also you can connect your camera and download without it as long as you have the driver updated. You can get the driver by going to Canon website, finding your camera's downloads and drivers section and selecting your operating system.

If this doesn't solve it, update the driver software from your device manager. If your camera shows up there, make sure it is the only imaging device that shows up, right click and update driver software by having your computer search automatically. This should work assuming your camera is compatible with your OS. Feel free to ask any other questions if this doesn't resolve your issue.

Hope this helps!

Trouble Downloading Pics


Here are the steps to take.

1. Establish whether or not you have a connection between your camera/computer by going to your start button, control panel, system, hardware tab and device manager. The camera must be powered on and in playback mode (should automatically go to playback mode when connected, camera's screen should go black if there is a connection). Make sure you have a fully or nearly fully charged battery in your camera.

2. Once in device manager, look under Imaging Devices. If your camera is properly connected it should show up as Canon Powershot SD800. If it shows a yellow exclamation point, there is a driver issue, and even if it doesn't show a yellow exclamation point, you may want to update your driver anyway by right clicking and having the system search automatically for driver updates. If download of driver begins, great...once finished, restart camera and your problem may be resolved. There may also be a driver available for download on the Canon website if you log onto www.powershot.com and go to the download library, select your camera from the menu and select your operating system from the dropdown menu. Look for TWAIN or WIA driver.

3. If there are any other imaging devices, you may have to temporarily disable them to avoid conflicts.

4. If you have any other imaging software running, exit or close the program in your system tray (down by your clock in the right hand corner of your computer's desktop.

5. Try again to connect.

6. If you are on a desktop, try a rear usb port vs. a front port. You can also try a different port on a laptop. After each change, try restarting camera to establish connection.

7. Go to start/My Computer and look for the icon for your camera...you will be able to download images even without Canon software loaded onto computer so this is not a software issue if you have no hardware connection. If you see the icon, right click on it and choose Get or Import pictures. From there the default Microsoft scanner and camera wizard should launch and you will be able to import your images.

8. If still no connection, try going to Start/Run and type in services.msc here you are looking for 4 services to be running. Check under status of each service and make sure it reads that each of these services are started.
  • Canon Camera Access Library 8 (if Canon software loaded)
  • SSDP discovery service
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
  • Windows Image Acquisition
Once all of these services are started on your computer, restart camera once again. If any of the last three services are not on your computer or are not started, connecting will be a problem.

If all of these steps fail, try purchasing an SD card reader from your local electronics store for around $12 and download images from there. Canon also offers lifetime technical support for your Powershot, so give them a call if none of these steps work or if you would like someone to walk you through it.

Best of luck to you!

If updating your Canon software on their website doesn't work, try these steps. I'm not sure what you meant about downloading to print...are you using card reader or camera to connect to PC?

Canon PowerShot A520 dowload problems


ya. picassa wont do any help to you brother. you may have connected the camera and switched it ON right?
after switching it ON change it to play back mode( mode in whih you see your photos) that time only camera detects the computer.

even if this is not working try a different cable to connect it.

else use your friends system to check if camera is really faulty.

even if its not working take it to service center. dont forget to take your warranty card and purchase bill there.
