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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Computer won't recognize the Canon powershot A570IS


Norton antivirus or antispam maybe thinking your driver is a virus so it is disabling it and prevent it from working correctly. In order to be sure, disable your norton 360. and reinstall the drivers for your canon. If it worked correctly, the problem is 100% from norton 360.

In this case you have to call canon and norton tech support to help you.

Before you call tech support, try change the security level to a lower setting and try again

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Camera No Longer Being Recognized


Does it connect to the PC via a USB cable? Then try connecting to a different USB port or if you have try a new USB cable. I had the same problem with my IXUS 400 and changing to a new USB port, directly to the PC - not a USB hub, it worked. However now I have several issues with my camera - no sound or image on the LCD screen, but I think these are unrelated.
