Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5

I downloaded movies fromy my Canon PowerShot SD850 IS onto my Mac G5 (10.4.10) using the Canon Software that came with the camera. Movies were stored on a 2 GB SD card. The movies appear in the ImageBrowser, but only play for 1 sec. It looks like I get the thumbnail and then white background during playback for the 1 second. The movies playback fine on the camera.

Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...

How do I import avi video from my powershot sd600 to a mac powerbook? photos go right to iphoto, but I cannot find a way to get the avi movies on the camera onto the mac...using memory in a big way. ...


iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

Canon PowerShot SD850 sound files not downloadable to Mac


I had the same problem. On my macbook I open the image capture application (in my applications folder) and a list of all the files (not just photos) on my camera comes up. Here I can choose to import the wav files and the movie (avi) files. I usually just save them to a folder and when I play them my mac finds the right player automatically. Good luck.

I have the Canon PowerShot SD600 and took pictures and filmed movies on my camera. The pictures and small movies downloaded but the larger ones won't download. Suggestions?


I am having the same problem with my Powershot A560. I have transferred several smaller movies to my computer in the past, but I have a large one (230MB) that results in the camera disconnecting and giving an I/O error, even though I have used a couple different types of software to try to download this.

You think you can try photo recovery software to see if you can rescue the lost photos or movies, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures and videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Download movie to computer


I have an elura 65 and I believe this model does not let you download your movies onto the computer in full motion. you can only do it through quicktime or some other similar program using less frames. the higher models: elura 70 etc. are supposed to be capable of transferring full motion film. that's what I understood from the owners manual. hope this helps

Try using a card reader to copy the movies across. Else , Make sure your using a USB port on the back of the computer, also try using the canon software to copy them across if you haven't already done so
