You might try another usb cable, sometimes the cable connections get bent up.

I would also agree with the previous commentator, the best way to download is to remove the card from the camera and insert it directly into a built in computer SD card reader.

I would avoid erasing pictures from the cards via the computer, if you accidentally erase the wrong file it could mess things up.

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.

Is there a program to download movies and pictures from my Cannon PowerShot S5IS digital camera?


Yes but you could use a card reader to download your pics and movies to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can use programs already on your computer to open them.

Camera-computer interface has been a long standing problem easily solved by buying a card reader ($15-20). Insert SD card into reader, plug reader into USB port and download using Picasa3 (free software from Google) or other image software (PhotoShop etc.)
