Question about Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera
There is no software cd in the box. My camera is Canon IXUS 860IS . How do I download the photos without the software?
To download without the software, you will need either the usb cord that came with the camera, or a memory card reader for your computer. For the first step, plug the camera into the computer and camera via the usb cable provided. put the camera in playback mode and turn it on. If you use a memory card reader, remove the card from the camera and insert it into the proper slot on the reader.
Now for PC users - go to 'my computer' (vista its just 'computer') and under 'media with removable devices' you should see the camera come up (or memory card folder). double click, and then you should see a folder that says DCIM. Click and drag that folder onto your desktop. Congrats, you just transfered your photos. Now the folder DCIM on your desktop should be opened and the folders within DCIM contain your images. Sort the photos in whatever way makes sense to you (most likely to be in my pictures (under my documents)). Be sure to delete the DCIM folder off the desktop AFTER you moved all of the images into their proper folders...otherwise next time you try to do this, there will be a conflict with folders named DCIM. This method keeps the images on your memory card. If you would like to remove them, after you re-insert the card into your camera, turn on the camera, press menu, go to the set-up screen (yellow) and go to format - this will erase every picture on your card and make a new slate for when you take new pics.
