When I try to download photos from the Canon G7 to a Mac I get the "communications error" message.

Having gone two months without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

I think that you can easily upgrade the firmware available from the Canon website.
Reference the Memory google for the Memory recovery format tool by Panasonic and you can reformat any memory card.

My canon powershot g7 USB quit working, tried different cable and different computer

Consider 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.

Everytime I try to turn my camera on it keeps saying "Lens error, restart camera". And the lens only goes out part way. What could be wrong with my camera?

ıt seems to be your lens is blocked by internal moving parts that could have been damaged due to dropping or hitting it (either camera or just the lens ) to a hard surface.
I recommend you to take it to the nearest photo repair shop to a expert examination .If you are lucky,and if it is not a serious damage they may correct it easily.

Canon G9 camera and G7 similar problem... checked out memory cards and they were reformatted. cards work fine in other digital carmeras I own. Can not get either camera to read a memory card

Usually this means there is a problem with the memory card part in the camera that reads the card. When this happens it will usually say either memory card error or card locked, even when the card is fine. Try emailing this site for help with this: All they help with are the Canon Powershot cameras and they're excellent for help with these models. Good luck with it. They'd be the place that could help with this.

Wont turn on

It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
