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 such as Picasa.

SOURCE: I have the date in

Hi

If you go to usa.canon com and search for 'a590', click on the link for the camera then click on 'drivers and downloads', now you will see the user manual in PDF format 4th on the list. You will find the instructions on pg 22:

Put the camera in shooting mode, set to auto, then press "Func Set" and use the down arrow to scroll down to the bottom row. Use the left/right arrow keys to unhighlight the date/time stamp and put it on "L" for the highest resolution setting for your camera.

Hope this helps. Good luck from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digital camera repair business)

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

That battery is for keeping the date and time settings when you take the regular battery out.

Can i download video from canon a590 to pc?


Install and use the software that came with the camera. It's either ZoomBrowser (for Windows) or ImageBrowser (for Mac). This will allow you to download both still images and video clips from the camera.
