Usually if you just plug the camera in it will mount as a removable disk (drive e: or similar) and you can move your files off to the hard drive.

I cannot retrieve pictures from my camera. When I plug it in to my USB port, my computer is not recognizing it. I have a Canon Powershot S30, my operating system is Windows XP.

Most Compact cameras come with a software disk that has the photo software pre-loaded. My experience is that once you have loaded the software and uploaded your pictures, you can then convert the file to XP, or better still, to Photoshop.

Hope this helps

Service manual needed for canon PoweShot S30

This isn't exactly a service manual, but something I had prepared for a friend who had a similar problem as you. Would recommend instead of fitting a new switch to replace the entier assembly. You can get broken S30's from ebay relatively cheap. Anyways, here's the file:

Cannot locate CD that came with Canon PowerShot S30

You don't need any special software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Unable to download pics to pc

Your Lexmark printer software may have changed the Canon software so that Lexmark is default. You need to reinstall an updated driver again for the camera. There are other great software utilities here too.
It should be a simple software problem. Only other solution is the USB cable or USB port fault.

Canon powershot sd 750 problems

Check on the CD software you received with your camera whether it support the Win Xp OS. In case it doesn't support your OS, go to the Canon web site and download to your PC the relevant drivers for your camera and OS. Good luck !
