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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).
First, make sure that the Computer recognizes the Camera when connected to it using the USB cable.
When the computer recognizes the connected camera then a "No name" drive appears on the Desktop of the computer.
If the Computer is recognizing the Camera but iPhoto then follow the steps given below to transfer images from the Camera to the Computer:
Double-click the "No name" removable drive on the Desktop to view and navigate through the folders and files on the Camera.
You can see several folders, you may either navigate through each folder to locate the folder that contains the pictures or double click the "DCIM" folder to view all the images. Next, copy all the desired images then paste them on the Hard Drive of the Computer.
Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.
Does it connect to the PC via a USB cable? Then try connecting to a different USB port or if you have try a new USB cable. I had the same problem with my IXUS 400 and changing to a new USB port, directly to the PC - not a USB hub, it worked. However now I have several issues with my camera - no sound or image on the LCD screen, but I think these are unrelated.
I would buy a memory card reader (docking station) for your memory card. This is preferred over going through the camera, anyway. Beyond that, you say you have ruled out every other thing I could suggest. Are you sure about all those? Can you try this on another PC or does anyone you know have a card reader you could try the memory in?
