Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

When I download my pictures from the Canon Powershot S5 IS to my computer, the pictures end up in separate folders organized by date on which I took them. I want to have the folders by subject. I used to be able to do that by manually changing the subfolder title. Now it gives me an error message.

    I did format it through the camera, while it was connected to my computer. The error message did not allow me to download to the newly named subfolder. Other suggestions?

What is the exact error message you are getting? Most likely, one or some pictures in your camera have the same file name with some of the pictures that are already saved into the computer.

Try to rename some of the pictures that are saved into your computer. Or try renaming also the folder where the pictures are saved. Then try to download the pix again from the camera to the computer.

BTW, you have to rename only the pictures that has a default file name. Example, the camera is giving the picture a file name of 001-07/24/09 (default file name given by the camera), you have to change it with a different file name so that it would not give you any conflict once you download the pix from the camera to the computer.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

Hi marika,

the folders' name and its subfolders are only formatted through the camera. if you give it a new name while it is on your computer, the camera won't be able to locate the original folder name it created. Else something is not shown on the manual of the S5 IS.

hope this helps. if you have other questions, please lemme know.

regards,

voodoo

Consider 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.

Hi, My Canon Powershot A80 would not turn on after the first attempt to offload pictures unto a computer.What do I do? Kingsley.


Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...insert the card and then the battery...turn on the camera. If it turns on, go into the menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. In the future, try using a separate card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

Date on pictures


Picasa uses your PC's folders. if you edit the folder name in picasa, it will change the actual folder name. and vice-versa.
