Dear customer,

Though you get these msg's which you have mentioned, you can ignore them, and try manualy installing the driver software for the camera, somehow.

Thankyou

None of my usb ports function as "high-speed" 2.0 , and I constantly get the message that my device can perform faster if I connect it to a high speed USB 2.0 port. I bought this computer brand...


you usb ports are to slow for the usb 3.0 device that message keeps coming up saying that the device is better then your usb ports you have on your computer...almost every computer now have 3.0 usb ports that have very fast transfer rates for data back and forth. well i tell you the message you get is not trouble with your usb port it just trying to tell you the transfer rate will be slower with your usb 2.0 port... i hope this helps you.

When i put any device in any 4 ports the error occur that this device perform faster and of usb pet reduced


Your computer is most likely equiped with USB v1.0 ports Most devices now can utilize the faster v2.0 and now coming out v3.0.
Your device will still work properly on the slower port but can work faster and with fewer issues on faster ports. I is probly time for you to consider a computer upgrade for if your port is the older (much older type) then your whole system is due for a big improvement.

Uploading images to 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.

In the past week it has suddenly been taking 5 to 7 seconds for images to load when I view an item on ebay. Other websights pretty much load immediately. Is this an ''ebay'' problem, or is there something...


It's a server issue with Ebay. Depending on time of day, Ebay has more traffic than most websites than most and thereby has slower server speeds than others. Another issue is Ebay images are uploaded by users who may not understand how to compress images to make them load faster. A thumbnail that's 50k will load much faster than a thumbnail that's 250k. Hope this explains your issue. Thank you for using Fixya!

Downloading images


Possibly a short in the camera, cable, or the port itself. Recommend trying another port. If that doesn't help, then please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

I keep getting this error message. This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi-speed USB 2.0 port. For a list of available ports, click here.


it means you have the USB low speed connection. If you have plug in the device in front of the CPU it prompt it sometimes, try it at the back if it still wouldn't work out. Install the USB driver to 2.0 version or higher. thats it

My Canon A540 cannon be connected to my PC


Here are the steps to take.

1. Establish whether or not you have a connection between your camera/computer by going to your start button, control panel, system, hardware tab and device manager. The camera must be powered on and in playback mode (should automatically go to playback mode when connected, camera's screen should go black if there is a connection). Make sure you have a fully or nearly fully charged battery in your camera.

2. Once in device manager, look under Imaging Devices. If your camera is properly connected it should show up as Canon Powershot SD800. If it shows a yellow exclamation point, there is a driver issue, and even if it doesn't show a yellow exclamation point, you may want to update your driver anyway by right clicking and having the system search automatically for driver updates. If download of driver begins, great...once finished, restart camera and your problem may be resolved.

3. If there are any other imaging devices, you may have to temporarily disable them to avoid conflicts.

4. If you have any other imaging software running, exit or close the program in your system tray (down by your clock in the right hand corner of your computer's desktop.

5. Try again to connect.

6. If you are on a desktop, try a rear usb port vs. a front port. You can also try a different port on a laptop. After each change, try restarting camera to establish connection.

7. Go to start/My Computer and look for the icon for your camera...you will be able to download images even without Canon software loaded onto computer so this is not a software issue if you have no hardware connection. If you see the icon, right click on it and choose Get or Import pictures. From there the default Microsoft scanner and camera wizard should launch and you will be able to import your images.

8. If still no connection, try going to Start/Run and type in services.msc here you are looking for 4 services to be running. Check under status of each service and make sure it reads that each of these services are started.
  • Canon Camera Access Library 8 (if Canon software loaded)
  • SSDP discovery service
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
  • Windows Image Acquisition
Once all of these services are started on your computer, restart camera once again. If any of the last three services are not on your computer or are not started, connecting will be a problem.

If all of these steps fail, try purchasing an SD card reader from your local electronics store for around $12 and download images from there. Canon also offers lifetime technical support for your Powershot, so give them a call if none of these steps work or if you would like someone to walk you through it.

Best of luck to you!

Could a photo printer corrupt my camera?


Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images. If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
