Really the simplest, easiest, and fastest way to download would be with a USB card reader. Simply pull the memory card out of your camera, insert it in the reader, then your computer will recognize it as a hard drive. Simply drag and drop all the pictures from the card to your computer. You should also experience much faster download speed with a reader than from the camera. And card readers are very inexpensive these days:

SOURCE: No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75

Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

SOURCE: New batteries but still no power on.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may require professional repair.

Thank you for such a detailed description, wishing others would take your lead. To the problem camera designated batteries (other then AA rechargeable) have always been a bit of a sore spot for me because the user is compelled to purchase a specific battery. As much as I prefer the name brand accessories for the camera there come a point where you just gotta venture forth with third party accessories. There is nothing wrong with using an "off" brand in fact what I've found is that is some cases they are a better battery. Again back to the problem. I grasping thoughts on how to word this but, here goes. As much as the manufactures would like you to believe that these batteries do not form a memory they do. Also the battery can trick you into thinking it's fully charged when in fact even though the charge light is saying completed it's only got about 1/3 charge. I've worked with Canon's BP 511 and now the "new" BP 511A for many years The BP511A or equivalent is the better battery. What needs to be done is to drain those batteries down until they stop, let it cool don't take it from the camera to the charger. Time the battery when you put it on the charger, meaning not to the second but what you would "normally" do is plug the battery into the charger and leave it right. Well what's possibly happening is that within ten minute the ready light is coming on, (something stupid going on in the battery) So check the battery stat of charge after say 15 minutes and if it says it ready (drum roll please) remove the battery unplug the charger for a few seconds and place the battery charger back onto the wall outlet and plug the battery back into the charger and look at your watch again. I've had to do this as much as three times until the thing would get the idea it was to take a charge "normally" about 2 hours will bring it back up. There is no device I've found to completely drain one of these batteries so over a period of time in your case one year the batteries begin this fit. I've since replaced the BP511 for the better BP511A's or equivalent. I'm not pointing a finger because myself and staff do the same thing and pull the battery before going to a shoot if it's showing partial discharge and the thing gets put onto charge and we start this cycle all over again. Be careful of the charger as well meaning don't just disconnect the battery and put it back on charge when it's going the cycle thing disconnect the charger from its power source as well because it holds a memory for a few seconds and will just shut off in a few moments if you don't.

Long story but I've been doing this now for 9 years since the dawn of Canon's 30D Cheers

Dmc ls80 transfer


Most cameras don't have enough internal memory to take more than 1 or 2 pictures internally. Picture transfer is normally accomplished via usb cord. The process begins when you plug in your usb and power on the camera. You have to navigate between internal memory and SD card in windows explorer.

Question after I download my pictures to my pc. can I redownload the pictures back to the canon power shot a520?


As a part of the download process, most cameras and transfer applications ask you if you want to delete the images off of your camera once they've successfully transferred to your PC. Check the preference setting of the application you're using to transfer the images to your PC. Best way to check is to transfer images to your PC, disconnect the transfer cable and see if the images are still on your camera.

Consider 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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. This is normal processing. The camera screen should shut off as the computer is now taking over to transfer the data from the memory card to the computer.

Can't access pictures or turn on camera


Hello, if the batteries where not fully charged when you where copying pictures to PC, the camera may have corrupted the pictures on the xD card. That is why the camera is showig a grey picture and turning off, it can't work without a valid picture card. A vey good way to restore the pictures on the card is to buy a card reader (they are unexpensive) that can handle xD cards and use a picture restore software.

For the restoration proccess, read the following page:

http://techblissonline.com/photo-recovery-deleted-pictures-corrupted-images/

Maybe you don't need to buy a card reader if your camera is recognized as a disk drive by the computer but I strongly recommend a card reader for future picture downloading to PC.

After recovering your pictures, you have to format your card in order to use it again in camera.

Good luck!
