Re: power shot g3
I can tell you from experience that the original batteries are expensive for this camera. I tried clone batteries and they are a waste of money. Use the original Canon batteries for reliability.
As for the memory card, an ultra fast card is the best. With the regular speed card the saving process is very slow. If I remember right the G3 can only see up to a 2 GB card at maximum size. I tried a 4 GB card and it did not work.
Consult the instruction booklet of the camera, or call a local camera store for the recomended memory type. The camera store can tell you what their customers were most satisfied with.

Did you check how many copies there are on your memory card?
I shoot RAW and JPG, so I'm used to get two images, with the same file name, but different extension. Check the file name and the extension. Check both, camera and computer.
Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.
as per your camment you already replace the battry thats means no problem in battery Ok Firstly please follw the steps,remove memory card(if have),power resourses like AC power adaptor and batteries and wait some some just about 10 min,than reinsert the battrie and AC power adaptor,swith on the camera without memory card,if it is work and than insert ithe memory card otherwise reinsurt the memory card correctly and close the memory card door properly if the camera working fine other wise follw the third instuction that check the AC power supply,this is connect properly through input or not.connect the properly and turn on the camera and check issue is resolved
If you not find the solution thats means your camera has been damaged,need the service of camera and second resion is if you insert the battry incorrectly ,some issue
One more resion is images in memory card,firstly download ths images in system and formate the card.
The camera doesn't charge though the camera is on. It only charges when the camera is off. Here are the steps for no power problems: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.
If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers repair of a defective CCD only. The model of the CCD affected was not installed in the G series PowerShots. The symptoms you describe indicate that either the LCD or something else in the internal processing electronics of the camera is bad.
Unfortunately your G3 is incompatible with Windows Vista. To
do downloads to your computer you will therefore have to utilize a compact flash card reader. You can get them from any store that sells digital cameras. I bought one from Wal-Mart three months ago for $14.00.
You can still load and use your software however. You just won't be able to download using Canon Camera Window.
I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list.
The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it
restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.
