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.

Try uninstalling your camera, then reinstalling it.  to do this, right click on "My Computer" left click "Properties" in the properties menu, click on "Hardware", go to "imaging devices" right click the camera model, left click uninstal, then reconnect the camera and it should reset.  hope this helps!

what operating system are you using? are you connected to the same USB port on your PC? You can always try a different USB port. Did anything happen to your camera between downloads (dropped it, battery issues, etc.)?

SOURCE: Re Canon Powershot A710 IS The

Hello

OK, firstly i will start by mentioning that this is a reoccurring fault with this specific unit.

The problem is most probably that either the plastic pins of the camera buttons that push on the circuit board has been shifted. Or, the circuit board itself is damaged.

If the camera is still in the warranty i would suggest that you take it back to point of purchase as soon as possible.

If not, this is not something i would suggest you attempt to fix yourself. As it is not a problem than will be resolved by a software reset, this is a hardware problem. I will suggest you take yhe camera to your nearest service centre of repair store, and let them have a look at it for you.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

My camera will not number my pictures 1,2,3,4... it is now at like 350 and continues to keep numbering no matter how many times i download and delete the pictures.


Trust me, you don't want the numbering to start all over again each time. Your computer would refuse to download your pictures because it will think the pics are already on the computer because of the same numbers.
