Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
Canon PowerShot S1 IS, laptop with Windows XP. I used to be able to download the camera to the laptop using Windows explorer. Now when I plug the USB cable, the laptop no longer recognizes the removable drive - I get no indication on the laptop (or on a desktop) that the camera is connected. The camera knows that the cable is connected (it freezes and does not accept inputs from the camera controls such as the menu button), but it gives me no opportunity to move images to the PC. I have tried two different cables and two computers with the same result.
Try 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.
