Question about Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Computer doesn't detect the camera

I have a powershot A 480 camera, I went to download pics, and normally I just turn on the camera and the pics will download. This didn't happen. It had happened the day before. I uninstalled and re-installed the camera, still no go.
Is it possible the cable that goes to the USB port and camera is no good?
Any other suggestions. The camera was purchased from Staples in Dec 2009, I went back there, and they won't help unless I find the receipt.

Thanks

You can probably blame Windows updates. Use a card reader instead of the camera.

The camera doesn't download pics to the computer. It reads

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe 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 yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and isinexpensive.

hi there

wow. you will need a software that detects pictures for that. initially, hp have there own software for their own camera. but since you are not Hp... you can use Picasa 2 for that.

picasa 2 is a programs specifically for pictures and video and it can even detect vids and pics form your camera and you can save it towards your computer.

you can download picasa 2 @ majorgeeks.com

I can't download pics to computer. I connect the camera, turn it on, pics come up, select pics, click download and nothing happens. Zoombrowser used to come up and with new computer, it doesn't...


Two possible solutions: 1. After the pictures come up, right-click on one of them and select "open with" and choose Zoombrowser from the list. 2. Use a card reader. Create a folder on your desktop and when the pictures show up after connecting the card reader, simply select all (highlight them) and drag and drop to the folder. From there, you can import them to Zoombrowser. typrice_188.jpg

My computer now has windows vista, previously windows xp. Do I need to download a driver to be able to transfer pics from the camera to my computer? Thank you Bernie.


You do not need to install a driver on Vista. It will detect the camera automatically, but the camera will be detected as "USB Mass Storage Device".

Canon Powershot SD1000 Uploading Pics To Computer Problem


Since your two cameras have the same problem with the same computer, I would like to suggest you to connect those cameras to another computer. It looks like the problem is on the computer side.

Digital camera won't download all pics to pc


I dont have a permanent fix for this but you can recover those precious pics.. When you can open it in photoshop just use file save as option to save them onto the computer.. Also when you are done with transferring all these pics then format the memory card(normal format not quick) then take some sample pcis and see if it skips again.. Postback so that we can followup on this..
