My Canon sx20 IS is not syncing with the computer. Changed the cable, but the computer still does not recognize the camera. The computer doesn't even see that I connect the cam. Nothing. Any ideas?

Okay a couple of things do do a transfer of pictures from the camera to the computer Canon is saying that you must have the software installed. If it's installed then make sure the camera is off, connect the camera to the computer USB port I'll suggest not using a hub or a keyboard and tio the camera digital out (mini USB). then
A window should open I don't know if you are a PC or Mac but with the camera software installed a window will open might take a few seconds follow the onscreen directions. Make sure when you have finished the down load that you press the same button to shut off the connection between camera and computer or you will corrupt the memory card and or the files. Once the camera has been disconnected from the computer format the memory card in the camera not the computer

Now when you are tired of all this messing around with the camera download thing, you can purchase a card reader. The reader plugs into a USB port and the memory card inserts into it. The computer looks at it as an external hard drive. Transfer the picture files to a folder on your hard drive and then you can open the folder in your image program. Still do a safe disconnect or eject don't remove teh memory card without first shutting it off the card nor the computer will be happy.

When putting the memory card into my canon powershot sx20 is i am getting a memory card error

These questions are old, I hope you have found a solution to your problem if not try this. The memory card needs to be formatted. You have been deleting pictures and not formatting, in this case format the memory card. Always format and never format in the computer the programing between the camera and computer are not compatible.

I have the canon powershot SX20 IS and it works perfectly except that i wanted 2 transfer the picsfrom my cam 2 my windows xp and i showed me a box showing "camera not detected , connect the connection...

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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
