Hi. the other day I took about 100 photos. For the first time this happened ti created a folder with 8 empty foldersin it. The were illegible, so I just deleted it. I'm using a sandisk 1GB by the way. I managed to get abput a 100 of the photos off the camera but the rest were not available to view. I could see them on the camera ok but just a black screen on my pc. I tried open some in photoshop but got the error "cannot parse the jpeg date" Anybody have any clues? Cheers!

Re: Canon s2 Is folders
Try formatting the card in the Camera (some Camera's do not like using cards that have been formatted by the PC).
Otherwise I guess it could be a bad card .. plug the card into PC, do a 'full' (not quick) format and then COPY about 1G's worth of images onto the card .. then 'open' the card in Windows Explorer, switch to 'thumbnail view' and see what happens ...

My solution is to unistall your current canon software that holds 15 canon components in your computer. You will find them under system task and select remove programs. After you have uninstalled the program, reinstall your "Canon Digital Camera Disk" and follow their prompts. Now you should be able to transfer images again as per normal. I have answered this question in detail under another question postered by "whitecar631" under canon "save folder not found" canon sd1100. This worked for me, but I don"t know how to prevent it happening again. I do know the day I lost all "my pictures", I had previously deleted a large file in my documents. I also experienced "save folder not found" when I tried to transfer images from my canon ixus 100. I was lucky enough that I had all of my original SD Flash Media Cards, so could transfer all my photos again. I have since put all my photos into labelled folders instead of dates and images. Hope this helps, it appears to be a problem in the canon program. Joyce
So with the folders you click on them and they are empty? if so not a problem do a safe disconnect and then format the memory card. You didn't tell me what camera model so the only thing I can suggest to find the format feature is to go onto the set up menu use the arrow keys to scroll down through the menus to Format and follow the instructions to format the card. Once done you are good to go. As a rule of thumb the memory card should be formatted each time you down load pictures to the computer Cheers have a great day
Ok, at the link you will be able to get step by step instruction on downloading photos from your camera to your computer. Just keep in mind that you will need to set the destination folder to the folder you want on the desktop. You will need to create a new folder on the desktop if you do not have one already.
Your camera creates folders on the SD card to hold the images. It puts about 100 images in each folder. (See page 111 in the User Guide.) When you erase images, it may only be erasing the images in one folder. But your computer still sees the images in the other folder(s). To completely erase all images, use the "Format" function (see pages 25 - 26 in the User Guide). To completely clear it, use the Low Level Format option. You can download the User Guide here.
This solution does not work. On MAc there is no way to use this scanner. Canon sucks!!! There was no info about supported os on the box. It is just unfair to sell products without providing drivers for users.
