This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual 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 don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive 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:

The Digital ixus 80is is fully SDHC compliant so should work with all SDHC capacities. There are no reports yet of incompatibility with the larger capacity cards as long as they have been supplied from trusted sources.
Every SDHC compliant camera which I've recently dealt with has only had problems when fitted with cards from suspiciously cheap suppliers. If an SDHC card is too cheap then it's almost invariably counterfeit and what's inside the card does not match the label outside, often they're plain low capacity SD cards.
As long as you stick to major brands from trusted sources you should be OK but bear in mind that the 16GB SDHC variants slow the camera functions down significantly compared to using an 8GB model.
I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful.

Hello sawyer. Turn on the camera go to the menu and find the reset function. Reset the camera. This will bring it back to the factory settings. That should solve your problem unless it is a dusty or broken shutter. IF the reset does not solve the problem you will have to take the camera in for a cleaning and shutter adjustment or send it in for one. Do not take the camera apart yourself as this will void any warranty you may have. Joe
