It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

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.

How do I download the pictures off my power shot a520 canon camara? I have it hook up to the usb cord but I still can not get any pictures off it.


Once you have connected the camera to the PC via USB, the pc should identify the camera (on Windows XP and later versions). In case this doesn't happen try re-starting the camera, alternately switch to another USB socket on your PC.

Canon power shot s80 screen failure.


If the camera's no longer under warranty, review some of the links on the following blog post:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/fixing-or-replacing-broken-lcd-screen.html

There's a lcd replacement linked there for an S40, it might be similar to your camera. If your camera's screen has not been shattered, recommend first trying to jiggle or reseat the screens ribbon cable to see if a bad connection might be the problem.

Check whether the software CD you received with the camera, support the Win XP OS. In case it doesn't, go to the Canon web site and download the relevant drivers for you camera and OS. Good luck!
