I've tried this software with my A310. My camera is not detectable by the software either. Really, you need to use a card reader with the VaioSoft software to recover your pictures.

When I turn my camera on now it says "no image",A child pushed every button on every menu item I think.Before this happened I had taken about 60 pictures and most of them had the protection lock...

I had success with this:
1. Remove the memory card and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader, or insert the memory card to card slot if there's any on computer.
2. Download asoftech photo recovery program from
3. In asoftech photo recovery program, scan the memory card and recover your photos.

Install software but keeps sayin camera not detected even though its all hooked up

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 any photo cataloging program.

Camera window keeps telling me that the camera is not detected

How about try these again

1- Uninstall all of the software related to Canon.
2- Install the drivers for your Canon ONLY.
3- After installing the drivers, plug your camera to a different USB port. (test your USB is working okay by connecting another USB device)
5- The drivers for your camera will be installed.
6- After it is finished, click start, then computer. Now you should have one Icon starting with canon.....
If you see this icon, double click on it. You will find one or more folders which contain the pictures stored in your camera. You may now download, delete Etc.

You either have not done above steps correctly, or your cable or your USB port is bad.

Good Luck!!!!!!

Please be noted that your camera memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Additional question...

Try all three of the listed programs, especially the third one from VaioSoft. But yes some of the pictures may be corrupted. Not much that you can do then. Also, if you format the card you may no longer be able to retrieve them. Here's the link to the VaioSoft recovery program:
