Downloading and Backing-Up Photos While On Vacation

I have a Canon PowerShot G7 digital camera and would like to download photos to an external memory while I'm on vacation. That way I'll have a back-up and get around buying multiple memory cards. Or, should I simply buy lots of memory cards? Thanks.

I guess your best bet is to have them on a PC/Mac.

While downloading to computer it loads all photos everytime


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

When I try to download photos from the Canon G7 to a Mac I get the "communications error" message.


Having gone two months without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

Communication Error


It suggests that the USB socket on the camera is damaged.

It's not cost effective to repair it, so just remove the memory card from the camera and transfer files using an external card reader. It's usually a lot quicker this way as well.

Downloading photos from my Canon A95


Sounds like the card has become corrupted. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. Also, highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures in the future. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon for your CF card:

http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1223745821/ref=sr_st?keywords=cf+compact+flash+card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acf+compact+flash+card+reader&sort=price

And finally, recommend formatting your card in your camera only AFTER you've recovered your photos (this will erase the card). This should fix the card for future use. Turn on the camera, select menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection outlining your's cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Downloading photos from Canon Powershot A310


Yes, that would help. It sounds like the computer is no longer communicating with the camera correctly, and that would be due to a glitch in the software. Most likely one of the files got corrupted for no apparent reason, and if you just do a full reinstall it should resolve your problem.

If you have a memory card reader in your PC, you could also try reading that directly from ZoomBrowserEX after reinstalling if the camera still doesn't connect. If you cannot connect both ways after reinstalling, then there may be something wrong with your PC. If you can access the memory card directly after reinstalling the software, then the cable between your computer and camera is to blame.

I hope this helps you.

Well, no matter you photos in Canon camera got deleted, formatted by accident or became inaccessible due to camera memory card errors. Chances of recovery is possible as long as you take the right action.

Take a try of this software to recover Canon photos, Not only general photo formats, but Canon RAW photo formats (.cr2 or .crw) can be retrieved easily.

Note: before the photos are recovered, Never should you attempt to take more photos or save more data to the memory card in case chances of photo recovery might be reduced. Hope it helps. Regards.
