Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
I am unable to open the camera window after connecting my canon a560 to my Dell 531s w/ Vista. Software is installed properly, should I uninstall and reinstall it and try again? Apparently this is a problem which has happened to others. Please advise. Thank you
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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

The problem is the batteries that you're currently using. They just don't have the power needed to run the camera, sometimes even if brand new and just out of the package. Digital cameras are power hungry, especially those that run on only two AA batteries (like your A560). You need to use the best batteries that are available. I recommend NiMH rechargeable batteries, power rated at 2,500 mah or better. They are 3 to 4 times more powerful than regular batteries. They will also quickly save you money as they can be used over and over again for years.

a quick remedy is to get a memory card reader. remove it from the camera then insert the card into the reader's slot. its fast and reliable. camera software and drivers get messed up really bad sometimes. its the drivers that gets screwed recognizing the camera when its plugged in.
oh by the way, have you tried plugging the USB plug to another port on your pc?
