Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have had my canon s3 for about 3 years now everything has been great until now. I cant seem to upload pictures to any computer now. When I plug in the usb it does not even detect that it is there. I have tried different usb cables so I am thinking it is something with the camera itself. Any suggestions? Thanks! Em

It may need to have cleaned the USB port in your camera. Dust and dirty can cause such failures.

Other reason is that the USB circuitry in the camera's main board is defective.

IF after cleaning the USB port, you have the same problem, a cheap alternative instad on sending the camera to repair, it's to use a SD card reader to download your pictures from the memory card.

Best regards,

I have the Canon PowerShot SX10IS. I have used this camera and successfully uploaded my photos to my MacBook OS 10.4.X now for several years. Just 3 days ago, I successfully uploaded my pics.Then this...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

My pictures won't upload


What i would do is to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them back again but just don't plug in the camera to the computer until it asks you to or not until it goes (Detecting new Device). Thats what i would do. Usually that fixes the problem. Another thing could be your USB connection is not working check it by plugging in another device to the same port and see what happens. Maybe its you USB connection. Let me know how that goes

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.
