Most probably weak batteries (this can happen even if new batteries are used). Recommend rechargeable NiMH batteries for the A400. See the following:

How can i upload photos from a canon powershot A3000 IS


You can connect it to a computer via USB and install the necessary drivers/programs or you can take the SD card out of the camera and put it into a card reader which connects via USB and get the photos off that way.

I can no longer upload photos from my camera to my computer


For Vista click the windows “start” button on the bottom left and in the search box type regedit . You will be asked to confirm your admin account. Just hit next or continue.
Now browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
It’s just like browsing through folders so don’t worry about it. if you get lost just start over. BE SURE you follow the path 100% There are many similar files and folders so double check they all match up.
Now that you are at the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} Folder on the right side you will see several entries. right Click and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters. These will be remade once you reboot.

CANON IXUS 75 Cannot upload photos to pc anymore!


OK, I'VE GOT ONE IDEA THAT MIGHT WORK. IT'S WORTH A TRY. DO THIS. TURN YOUR COMPUTER OFF> CONNECT YOUR CAMERA>TURN THE CAMERA ON>THEN, TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF YOUR COMPUTER WILL RECOGNIZE IT THEN. THIS SHOULD CAUSE THE COMPUTER TO RECOGNIZE THE CAMERA. GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE THIS WORKS! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

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.
