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.

IMac deactivates USB port when I connect my Nikon P300

Try connecting the camera directly to the computer, without going through a hub. If that doesn't work, then buy a card reader.

I'm trying to upload my pictures from my DXG-587V to my computer but every time I plug it into the computer, my camera shuts off and I can't get my computer to pull it up. Any suggestions??

Hi Beth,
The best i can suggest you is.. Turn off the Camera before you connect the USB Cable..
Try a different USB port on your PC to connect the Cable and once you have connected the Cable, Power on the Camera, it should work.

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 LightRoom or any other photo cataloging program.

How to download from my camera to the computer?


You need to hook up your camera using a USB cable and connect it to one of your computer's USB ports.

There are instances that you do not need to install any other software to get the pictures/videos. Once the computer detected the camera, just browse the available devices thru the Windows Explorer if you are using windows. This is what they call the Plug 'n Play functionality.

Just click on My Computer and then look for your camera's drive. Browse the folder and then hopefully from there, you can copy your files.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT will not connect to computer.

Please discard that the USB port or the USB cable are defective. You can do it if you try to hook your camera in other personal computer using the same USB cable. If it works, then follow the next instructions.

Connect your camera to the PC thru the USB cable and turn it on.

If you are using Windows, go to the Control panel - System - Hardware - Devices - and check if there is any device that was not recognized by Windows. Such devices are marked with a yellow question mark.

If so, get into the device item and with right mouse click, select to update the device driver.

If there was not unrecognized device, then you can unistall your USB port driver and then run a change hardware status to recognize the USB port again, then run the update driver routine.
