Believe you should first put it in picture review mode. 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:

Consider 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Canon Powershot A580: Can I take pictures in monochrome and, if so, how?


Press the FUNC/SET button. Use up/down to select ]My Color] (the fourth item from the top). Use left-right to select BW. To get back to "normal," select OFF.

It's in the "Shooting in a My Colors Mode" section in the manual (page 97 in my copy).

How to print pics with the date stamp from canon A580


The date stamp feature on this camera will only work in postcard mode- resolution set to 2M (1600 x 1200) and compression set to fine. You have to set the picture mode to that first. You also have to set the date and time if it isn't set already.

To set the mode quickly, set the mode switch to camera, turn the mode dial to A (auto), then press Func. button, scroll down to the "L", scroll across to the mountains with the clock dial, then press the Disp. button to turn date prinitng on and off.
