Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Downloading pictures I have a canon power shot s31s. I have downloaded all the software previously on my home computer with no dramas. I have been using the camera constantly while on holidays with no problem (downloading pics) to my laptop, but now that i am back home, i went to download pictures to my home computer and it doesn't find the camera when i hook it to the computer?? I have never had this happen before. When i do a search it doesn't find the camera and i have uninstalled the programmes and reinstalled them but still have the problem. Please help because it is inconvenient to download them to my laptop then transfer to my home computer. I have experienced the same thing this week with my Canon Powershot. I am using Vista on my laptop and up until now have had no trouble downloading photos with Zoombrowser, but now the computer says the device is not recognized. I tried rebooting to no effect. Has Vista put in some updates recently?

How do you use the camera recorder on Canon powershot s31s camera? I would like to know how to record, save and then download short "movies" on the camera.

Just to the right of the viewfinder is a silver button with a red dot in the centre. This will start / stop recording. Set the camera dial to Auto, press the red dot button, and your recording will start. When ready, connect the camera to your computer with a USB cable and the movies will download at the end of the still pictures.
You might find recording suddenly stops after a while - this is because of a size limit for movie files. You can get over this by changing the resolution that the camera records at. It's quite complicated so I suggest checking the user manual or downloading it from the Canon webiste to choose what quality if resolution to use.

Canon power shot won't upload pics. "Cannot connect to device."

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:
