Hi, I know the solution!!
You have to reformatt the memory card.
You go into the orange - tools (set up).
Look for FORMAT.
PRESS SET
Then it says FORMAT MEMORY CARD?
CLICK OK.

Warning!!! : Any pictures that you do have WILL NOT BE SAVE OR RECOVERED. But you're camera will download images after you have formatted the memory card. It's a corruption that has happened through the memory card.

I HOPE THIS HELPS. I got my CAMERA BACK YAY!!

Canon Not recongized by Computer


Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.

Downloading from Cameras


try using other cable, maybe your cable is already worn out (or has some disconnection). if your camera comes with a memory car, try using a card reader to transfer your photos

Downloading images


I don't have this model of Camera, but I think you should be using the same Canon software. Try going to your PC, go to Programs and going to the Canon Utilities folder. You will see a CAMERA WINDOW folder that has another CAMERA WINDOW folder that has a CAMERA WINDOW application. This should allow you to set the way you can download images to your PC. You can tell it to have your camera have the download options and have new images downloaded by date.

Sd600 digital camera trouble downloading pics to computer


Hmmm... Yea sometimes the pc doesn't see the added gizmo your camera. In which case, I suggest when you connect camera to computer click on "my computer" and you should see your device listed there along with your C drive & so on. Click on the camera icon & viola, you can copy the images from there to your computer. Yea I had the same experience with PS too, well Elements in particular. And there is a setting (somewhere in Elements Browser window) to turn it off. Yea to simply download images - it doesn't require any software at all with XP. I use a card reader & rarely deal with using the camera cable to computer hook up. To use that device you'll remove the card from the camera & stick in the reader & its ALWAYS worked for me. Again you'll have to click on "my computer" to find the images there. Otherwise --- next step would be to try another usb cable.

Problems when connecting Canon Powershot A70 - Cannot find program to upload pix


The popup would be the windows wizard wanting to assist with downloading image files. There's 2 popups one is the wizard and you'll click on transfer images & it walks you step by step to download the images. The other one is just a one click option & you can copy the images files to your computer. But since those options don't seem to work for you - one solution would be to click on "my computer" and you'll either find your camera or memory card listed along side your computers C drive. If you're downloading images from the camera - it needs to be hooked up via the cable + the camera probably needs to be turned on. Some cameras also have a setting or button to turn in order to download the images.

Camera is "frozen"


Use a card reader, in case you cannot connect the camera to the PC, and download all card contents into the PC. Use a known good card on the camera, see if there's any difference. You can also format your old card, just make sure you don't do it in a different format that will later cause you more trouble. When the camera was stored for 6 months, did it have batteries in it? Check for corrosion on the contacts, and try cleaning if there is any. you can use a pencil eraser, just make sure to clean all the pieces. Hope you work it out
