Can't download pics on my computer from my A490 Canon camera


A connection can be made via USB universal serail bus. These cables are indeed universal witch can be bought fo under $10 at your local omputer store Best buy?

This will be installed as a mass storage drive after witch it would be under My computer as a removable storage drive.

You would look under a directory where you photos would be enjoying home, right mouse click on them then click copy, then go to C drive under my photos or my pictures the click paste, this will put the photos from the camera on the Hard drive of the computer.

How do i get canon power shot A480 to charge ? I put in new batteries and connected it to the port on my laptop and the camera is on and the lap top is plugged in. will it charge this way ?


No, for Canon Powershot cameras, connecting to your computer with the USB cable is just for downloading your photos. You'll need to remove your batteries and use an external charger to charge your batteries (assuming that they are rechargeable and not alkaline).

How do I download photos from my camera (dsc -s500) onto my computer?


The easiest way is by plugging it in through a usb cable, this camera is probably going to use a micro usb port cord. Another way is to take out the memory card and either to insert it into the memory card reader of your computer if there is one, and if not than a usb card reader can be purchased for a decent price. This reader is than plugged into the usb drive on the computer and when the memory card is inserted into it, the computer should ask what you want to do, you need to open folder to see files, and than just copy the files over into a folder on your PC.

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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Down loading to lap top


After a couple years of use, neither of my computers will recognize my G6. This is the second G6 I've had with this problem. Canon replaced the first camera with a new one. I have just returned from a trip, and don't know how to get the photos transferred, before I send it back to Canon. Would appreciate any helpful information. Thanks.
