Question about Canon PowerShot SD960 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Downloading pics on Canon Powershot SD960 IS.

I have a Canon Powershot SD960 IS. I have followed the instructions on how to download pictures on my computer. When I connect the USB port and turn the camera on, it shows that the camera is connected. However neither the CameraWindow program nor Microsoft Digital Image Editor are showing up on the dialogue box which asks which program to use to launch the action. I have also tried accessing these programs through the Programs menu but I get the message 'Cannot detect camera.Check Connection and retry'. The connection is there as indicated by the dialogue box yet I keep receiving the same message. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the DIGITAL SOLUTION disk that came with the camera.

Use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can transfer the pictures to any program you wish.

Hi...I can't download pics from my canon powershot g3...I have a CF card...it worked before...then my computer crashed and had to reinstall XP...do I need to install a photo reader?...or something...


You need to find your original Canon solutions software disk and reinstall it. But if you can't find it, 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:

My problem


Highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader instead to download you pictures. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:
