Unable to download images to computer.

This is frustrating. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the software three times to no avail. The window pops up prompting me to select a program to view the images, but there is nothing to select. HELP!

Re: Unable to download images to computer.

You will need something to view the JPGS with.

XP should find the right program....if not
click START, MY COMPUTER, TOOLS tab, FOLDER OPTIONS, FILE TYPES, see if JPG is there, if not click NEW, if it IS there click the CHANGE and use the XP Window PICTURE VIEWER.

Then you are set.

Good Luck

When I try to download most recent pictures I am forced to download all that are on camera

It depends on what software you are using to transfer photos from the camera to your computer.
If you install and use the "Camera Window" transfer software Canon included with the camera, you will see you have three modes to choose from, including the option to transfer just the photos on your camera that have not yet been transferred.

Connect the camera with a USB cable to your computer.
Power up the camera.
The computer will detect the camera, and open a dialog box offering you a choice of programs on your computer that can handle photo transfers.

If you choose the Camera Window software, it will open and present a menu with three choices of action. The first option is, "Import images from Camera." Select this.

Another submenu opens presenting these three options:

1. Import Untransferred images. (this is what you said you want)
2. Select images to Import. (manually select just certain ones)
3. Import All images (automatically transfers every image on the card)

Camera Window is just one of many available image transfer applications you could use. They all do essentially the same three things outlined above, including "Import Untransferred images."

Canon included a couple other utility programs on the CD that came with your Powershot A490 camera. One of them, "Zoom Broswer EX" enables you to reload photos from your computer, back on to your camera's image card, if you want to do that.

I just downloaded IE 8 and wonder if it is impacting uploading images to my system? Since I upgraded my system I am unable to transfer images to my computer from my camera. I have tried everything and I am...

Try uninstalling then reinstalling your camera software. Maybe your camera software simply doesn't like IE8. Unlikely though. An upgrade of drivers may be in order.

Canon Sd700IS;Unable to download images. As soon as the window appears on my PC it will show no images on both the camera and PC.

If you installed the camera cd rom you should have no problem.It is normal not to see the pics on your camera while connected to the computer but you should be prompted to use a ge eric program do download the files like windows camera wizard.try to connect the camera first with the usb cable and turn it on and wait for a few seconds.If the wizard apears on the screen is ok .If not uninstall the software and reinstall after a cold boot.

Cannot transfer images from my Canon DSLR XTi to my computer

Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.

Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.

Unable to download 17 images from camera to computer

Make sure the USB port you are connected to are working.

If so, I would uninstall and reinstall the software.

The latter worked with ours.
