    I just wrote a message on the same problem. It worked fine for me for 3 years with this Powershot G6 until a week ago when my downloading interrupted suddenly. I changed the USB interface cable thinking it needed to be changed and today when I tried it, same problem, this time it's worst than ever because I don't even get the sign that my computer has detected the camera.. this time I get a message over and over again telling that "Cannot detect camera, check connection to camera, the retry" I have retried forever... and now I fear that my camera is damaged... I have checked out everything as far as I know, but no connection...

Photo transfer problems are as likely to be related to software as to hardware. If you use photo-editing software other than what came with your camera, check the software's documentation and Web site to see if the manufacturer supports your camera. Download and install any software updates, as well.

If your photo-editing software can't detect your camera, make sure your camera is attached, turned on, and, if necessary, switched to transfer mode. Double-click the My Computer icon and look for an icon that corresponds to your camera. If you see an icon for your camera, you know that Windows detects your camera and that the problem is related to your photo-editing software.

SOURCE: Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

SOURCE: can not download pictures

When I connect the camera to the computer, The " camera window" software will not come up. I must download the photos to another software program then transfer them to zoombrowser files from there.

I suspect the camera window software is starting but stays hidden. the hourglass icon comes up but disappears after a few seconds.

Nikon coolpix s80 stopped downloading pictures


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 or Nikon Transfer.

DO YOU HAVE A SOLOUTION FOR DOWNLOADING PICTURES WHEN WE HAVE LOST THE DISK FOR THE COMPUTER


If you connect the cable from the camera to the computer, the computer will treat it like it is another disk drive. Open Windows Explorer and look for an extra drive. It might even give your camera name. If all else fails, find the company you need the disk from on their web site. They usually have a support section that allows you to download manuals and software for your camera. Good luck!

Cannot download pictures


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea
