Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
Hello and welcome to FixYa
Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.
This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.
The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.
Once you insert the card into the reader , a storage disk will be created in "my computer". It will look like a flash drive and when you open it , there will be a few folders.
One of these folders will be something like DCMC and inside will be all the pictures on your card. Now just select the pictures you want to copy and copy them to the computer like you would any other file.
