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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: unrecognized USB device

I'm having the same problem, just called Canon and they said that there's a missing or damaged .dll (driver) that's preventing Windows from recognizing the camera. I looked into getting support from Microsoft but I don't want to pay for it, so I didn't bother. I bought an inexpensive USB card reader from SONY (about $20) and used that to download the photos.

SOURCE: camera won't connect

I had the same problem. The driver did not install correctly. I then connected the camera without the memory card in, and the driver installed correctly. Subsequent connections of camera with memory card installed, worked fine.

Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

Most digital cameras (NOT ALL but the exceptions are sold as such)
can't be connected to the computer, when they are switched on.
Most digital camera's will shut down, when connected to the USB card. Your Canon G10 is no exception. Most of the time when connecting the USB cable the camera changes in an external memory drive for the computer. Some camera's can be charged via the USB cable. Even when connected to a computer.
Even when I want to connect my DSLR to a computer, to do life view on my computer screen, I have to install special (payed) software, to let it work.
Without the software running, the same DSLR always shuts down and only will download pictures when another program is started.

When you bought the camera, it should have come with an installation disc. If you don't have one, try hooking up the camera to your computer, it should connect online and ask to install.

Pc don't recogise new hardware


It sounds as if your power supply isn't putting out enough to support so many USB devices on your system. If you have an external USB Hub, do you have a power adapter plugged into it?

How do I download the pictures off my power shot a520 canon camara? I have it hook up to the usb cord but I still can not get any pictures off it.


Once you have connected the camera to the PC via USB, the pc should identify the camera (on Windows XP and later versions). In case this doesn't happen try re-starting the camera, alternately switch to another USB socket on your PC.
