Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
Have had the camera several years and always worked great. Went to download pix and this time the download program didn't pop up. Went to the program directly and tried and it said 'no camera recognized'. Have checked connections all seem ok. Pls help.

OK, that didn't work. I do not see any other 'drives' other than c,d.a and scanner in my computer, should there be a drive showing for the camera.
One other thing, when I turn the camera to the download setting the light flashes twice then doesn't again, unlike normal downloads where it continues to flash until the download is complete. Help?

Remove the Camera software.
Assuming the camera is OK Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista will see the camera without software.
Try it and come back

Software Uninstalled- OK
This is a ME/2000/XP computer yes?
Then with the camera switched on and operating and correctly plugged in Windows should put up the Scanner/Camera Wizard ask you what to do about the images.
If it does not- with camera still plugged in etc., reboot the computer.
Go to my computer ans see if an additional drives is showing- that is if you have normal A C D drives then 'E' drive should show if you other drives then the next letter
Come back when you have tried all that.

This then is a camera fault on the main board.
Actually- camera working or not the bestway to get images into a computer is through a card reader and not the camera.
so 2 things - 1. junk the camera at this age no repair is likely
and 2 when buying the next camera buy a card reader- they are quite cheap,
Just a question--have you made sure that the cord between the camera and computer is GOOD.The cord may be damaged,connections dirty,if there are pins-bent.Make sure this item is GOOD.Easy and simple things first and that which gets damaged any time and not looked at first.
Hope this helps
