Question about Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera
Options are "try again," "skip this file" and "skip all files with errors". I can't get it to "try again", so i tried "skip all files with errors," and it downloaded the title i gave but none of the pictures, so when i went to my Pictures files, the titled file was empty.

SOURCE: Can't get videos off the camera
When you connect the camera to the pc there's a box with options for what you want to do. When I downloaded my photos and videos using the scanner and camera wizard it worked fine.

SOURCE: my pictures wont import
Google's Picasa program should be able to get those images for you, http://picasa.google.com/ (it won't be picky like Canon's Software).
If worst comes to worst:
1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the memory card
3. From the popup menu, click "Search"
4. In the left hand pane, you should see something reading "What do you want to search for"
5. Below that, click the item that reads, "pictures, music, video"
6. Start the search
7. Once the search is finished If your pictures and video appear copy and paste everything to your desktop (or wherever you want the photos)
Additionally, once you get everything off the card you should probably format it using the camera (see your instructions manual) to make sure you don't get that error again

SOURCE: Video Format
If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.
Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.

SOURCE: need to change file name
This is one of those "it depends" kind of answers. I'll assume that you have copied the picture files from the camera to your computer. If not, let me know and I'll help you through that -- while possible to rename the files when they are on the camera (actually on the "compact flash" memory card), it's not a great idea.
So the pictures are in a folder somewhere on your computer, probably "My Pictures" if you're using Windows, and somewhere similarly named if you use a Mac. On windows open My Pictures, and click the filename (IMG_XXXX) once, then once again and you should be able to type a new name. On Mac, use Finder to locate the file, click it, and select Edit > Rename.
That's the hard way. Chances are you are using some program to help manage the images -- to import them from the camera, to edit them and so on. If you're using the Canon software, forget it -- use Picasa (free from Google at picasa.google.com) on Windows, or iPhoto on Mac (there's a Picasa version coming for Mac soon -- it's awesome). Once in Picasa or iPhoto, renaming should be pretty obvious.
The trick to remember is: the pictures are pretty much just regular computer files like word processor documents or similar -- you can rename them probably in a similar way that you do with other files.
Hope this helps!
