I had that problem a couple of times. In at least one of those cases it turned out that I either hadn't turned it on, or I hadn't flipped that little lever on the back into the right position for them to talk. If the Canon software is on your computer, you can often eventually coerce them into communication, but if fiddling about doesn't help, that's all I've done.

I can't get pictures from camera to pc. display me no pictures on camera.


There are various things that could be wrong, such as low batteries, incorrect settings, no memory card in camera, etc. I would suggest as an easy start that you download the "Powershot A460 User Guide Basic" (a .pdf file) from the Canon website and read pages 24-30. You probably do NOT need to install any software on your computer if you are using a PC. The computer should recognize the camera when connected to a USB port, and open the Scanner and Camera Wizard by default.

Here's a link to the CanonUSA page where you will find the A460 basic user manual. It is the fourth (4th) item down, under "Brochures & Manuals."

I seem to be unable to load photos from my cannon powershot A460 to my computer???


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.

Transferring of pictures


you can just plug the camer to the computer using the USB cable it came with or any USB cable that will fit.

once connected your computer will install the needed files, just wait until it says done or "installed and ready to use".

after that go to "my computer" then look for an item there that has a camera name or a "removable storage", double-click on it.

usually the images will be in a folder that says DCIM

-i have a Canon A460, so it should be the same folder.

if you have other questions just lemme know okay...
