Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Images not uploading to computer

I've had my Canon Powershot SD700 for almost a year, and haven't had any problems until today. I have it plugged in to my computer as usual, have it set on playback mode as usual, but the dialogue box that usually opens so I can start downloading is not popping up. I checked my control panel, and my computer is recognizing that my Canon is plugged in. It's been a few months since I've uploaded anything from my camera, and have a backlog of pictures on it from a few months (about 180). I've also tried restarting my computer, and making sure the battery is fresh, but nothing is working. Any suggestions?

Re: Images not uploading to computer

  1. Uninstall and reinstall the Canon's software. Something may have gotten corrupted. This is the simplest and fastest thing .
  2. If that does not work, think if you need Canon's software - you can browse to the Canon directory under "My Computer" (or whatever you computer's name is), and copy the JPG files from under there.

No longer found on computer

It may be that the camera is out dated so if you go onto the canon website and find a plug in to down load to your computer then you should be able to run it
