Can't Download A Large File from Canon A560 Digital Camera

I have a large video I shot with my Canon A560 Digital Camera that will not download into my computer. I have tried using Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 and Windows XP Pro Camera Wizard but neither will let me download.

The error message reads not enough storage space to copy file. I have 128 Mb of RAM; Drive C is 99 Gb with 60% free space; Drive D is 50 Gb with 98% free space.

The video on the Canon A560 camera that I am trying to download is 15.5 minutes long. It is presently the only file on the camera.

I can watch the video on the camera's display and hear the sound just fine.

All my other files, taken before and after this video have downloaded just fine.

So for six months this one video remains on my camera and I would like to save it to my hard disk.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!
Tom

Get a card reader. The one pictured below is $13 at Walmart. Create a folder on your desktop. Insert your card into the card reader and the other end into a USB port on your computer. Drag and drop the video file into the folder you created. Can't Download A Large File from Canon A560 Digita - b957eb4.jpg

I cant download video files from my Canon IXUS 850 IS


Use a separate card reader to transfer the video to a folder you create on your desktop. Try using Quicktime to open it.

I have a canon powershot A1000 recorded a 10 minute video and can't transfer to pc??


You will nearly always run into problems trying to download very large file (such as that 10 minute video) using the download cord that came with your camera. But please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos, and especially videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

I have the Canon PowerShot SD600 and took pictures and filmed movies on my camera. The pictures and small movies downloaded but the larger ones won't download. Suggestions?


I am having the same problem with my Powershot A560. I have transferred several smaller movies to my computer in the past, but I have a large one (230MB) that results in the camera disconnecting and giving an I/O error, even though I have used a couple different types of software to try to download this.
