Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Downloading Canon digital elph SD850 IS. Instructions state should use an AC adapter to download images to my computer - or to use a fully charged battery. Is this purely the drain on the battery or for some other reason? I plan to do this at home. Is it different if I do it at the local CVS. I'm new to all this. Thanks, Ron

Can't download images to computer using Canon Powershot SD850 IS

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.

Hi. I have used an older model ELPH camera its quite nice. It sounds that you are using the cable from the camera to the computer to download the photos. I do not know why the error occurred (probably a weak battery ) . Have you tried taking the memory card out of the camera (push it once and it pops out), then insert it into a special SD adapter connected to the computer by USB? Image google sd adapter usb if you do not know what that is. Some computers have the SD slot built in the side. After that on a PC click Start/My Computer where the card should appear as an external storage device. Click on that and on any folders within and your photos should all be there. Select all (Ctrl+A) and copy/paste them into a folder of your choice.

Canon SD600 digital elph

Immediate solution is to buy a card reader and use it to download all images via your USB port. I suggest using Picasa3 (free software from Google) for the downloading and organization of your images, but other software works as well. Direct camera to computer download have been a longstanding problem as computers change (e.g. vista) and camera software doesn't.

Canon powershot sd850 is digital elph


No, it means the screen resolution for your computer. These days most computers should have their resolution to 1024x768. If you don't know how to change it ask somebody who knows a little about computers to help, its not a problem with your camera.
