Downloading images to PC

I've been trying to download my images from the camera to my PC, but I always get a message after the PC recoginzes the Canon hardware that an error has occured and no window to download pops up. I've already reinstalled the hardware, but I still get the same results. The camera is set to "communicate" with the PC. How can I Fix this situation?

Re: Downloading images to PC

Try upgrading the PC's USB drivers (Microsoft update) and re-loading the Canon software that comes bundled with the Camera.

You can't edit the photos on the camera. The resolution is fixed after the picture is taken. All photo editing must be done on the computer. Zooming in is only temporary enlargement.

Problem downloading image

One of the images did not finish writing to the card properly (usually in the last 4 or 5 images, or the last video)
Try selecting all but the last 10 images and chose import selected. This should work. Then delete those from the card.
This bit is important
Put the card back in the camera (if it's in a usb reader) if not, disconnect the camera and put it into playback mode. View the remaining 10 images/video.
Try re importing and it should work fine! I've had this problem since ilife '09 and this method always fixes it. It seems to happen when the cards get full. Try not to completely fill a memory card and you should not get the problem.

Downloading images

I don't have this model of Camera, but I think you should be using the same Canon software. Try going to your PC, go to Programs and going to the Canon Utilities folder. You will see a CAMERA WINDOW folder that has another CAMERA WINDOW folder that has a CAMERA WINDOW application. This should allow you to set the way you can download images to your PC. You can tell it to have your camera have the download options and have new images downloaded by date.

Sd600 digital camera trouble downloading pics to computer

Hmmm... Yea sometimes the pc doesn't see the added gizmo your camera. In which case, I suggest when you connect camera to computer click on "my computer" and you should see your device listed there along with your C drive & so on. Click on the camera icon & viola, you can copy the images from there to your computer. Yea I had the same experience with PS too, well Elements in particular. And there is a setting (somewhere in Elements Browser window) to turn it off. Yea to simply download images - it doesn't require any software at all with XP. I use a card reader & rarely deal with using the camera cable to computer hook up. To use that device you'll remove the card from the camera & stick in the reader & its ALWAYS worked for me. Again you'll have to click on "my computer" to find the images there. Otherwise --- next step would be to try another usb cable.
