Usually there is software installed that you use to run the camera on the PC. Uninstall it. DO NOT have camera connected. Install software AND DRIVER FIRST. Then reboot and connect camera. it should then find new hardware and you can operate as before.

I can't download pictures to my computer error message says cannot detect camera

It may be a USB port issue or a USB cable issue. Try an alternate cable or a different USB port. Try other USB devices on those same ports to make sure they work. Try using a USB card reader to transfer photos from the card directly instead of plugging in your camera directly.

My computer does not detect my power shot A400

If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

"cannot detect camera"

Have you tried installing the software and then rebooting the computer. Quite often that's all that's required for the computer to recognize the camera.

My computer cannot detect my camera

Have you loaded the appropriate software? If not:

If you already have and have connected your camera to the computer but still does not detect it, try uninstalling the program completely and reinstalling the software.

My sony cybershot DSC-W35 digital camera says Format error


In regards to your settings on your camera, I would suggest trying Auto first and then Mass Storage second. Auto in theory should detect the proper settings needed and adjust automatically. Mass Storage setting would treat the camera with your card like a flash (thumb drive) and would work also, however the software included with your camera will most likely work best with the auto setting. One quick question before we get too deep into this, is the card in your camera a brand new one or does it have pictures on it?
