Best regards,

    BTW, if the only thing you wand to do is downloading the photos to your computer, no additional software is required! Connect the camera to your computer using a USB cable; Windows should automatically recognize it and add another icon in "Computer". Click it, and copy/paste all the photos your need...

    Good luck,
    Pelu.

    When connected to the computer, switch the camera ON and adjust to PLAY MODE!

    Please inform me if you need any further assistance...

    Are the photos on a memory card or in the camera's internal memory (if it has...)??
    Can you see the photos on the camera itself??

How do I obtain a "Date Battery" for a Canon PowerShot G2?


Please see page 130 of the following:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900001283/PSG2CUG-EN.pdf

The CR2016 is a very generic button battery. Take a look at your local pharmacy such as Walgreens or Rite Aid. Have even bought them at Walmart's watch and jewelry department (Though Walmart was shockingly more expensive than the pharmacies). Shouldn't cost more than 3 or 4 dollars.

Canon Powershot G2 - Looking at pics on PC


You may need to download drivers for your camera. If the camera included a CD, install the software on it.

If it did not come with a CD or you don't have one, you can download Canon's software via their website.

You may also need to use a different USB port, maybe one located on the back instead of on the front like you may be using.

If that does not work, please let me know.

Canon SpeedLite 220EX


The two types of Camera refer to the SLR's. I doubt the G2 will support FP flash as it probobly does not have a focal plane shutter like a SLR.
