Canon PowerShot SD700 IS won't upload the photos to the PC?

Hi There,

I had my cmera for 3 years and never had a problem and love it. But today, it won't upload the photos. When I connected the camera to my PC, normally, the camera's little light flashes and then the page comes on the camera's screen; asking, all the photos or the new ones to be transferred. Today it wouldn't do it.

Would you be kind enoug to let me know what might be the problem and solution to that? I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you so much.

    exactly the same problem. Used this camera for a year, on a Mac, never had any problems until yesterday. I tried changing cables, disconnecting other USBs, etc nothing helped.

I hope this down't sound dumb, but you say to use a card reader you still have to connect using a usb cable??? What's the advantage?

You could avoid this problem by using a simple cheap SD card reader. Remove the SD card from your camera, insert the SD card in the reader and connect the reader to your PC/Laptop by a USB cable. You can then useWindows to view and upload your pictures

Hi there! I have a Canon PowerShot SD700 is. I have bought a Sandisk 8 GB. My camera cannot read it. It says: Memory Card Error. What can I do about it? Many thanks for your help

The SD700 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

Images not uploading to computer

  1. Uninstall and reinstall the Canon's software. Something may have gotten corrupted. This is the simplest and fastest thing .
  2. If that does not work, think if you need Canon's software - you can browse to the Canon directory under "My Computer" (or whatever you computer's name is), and copy the JPG files from under there.
