Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
Has been downloading for 2yrs now. Just stopped. System Profiler recognizes the camera but iphoto or image Browser won't recognize it.
Have re installed programs, run a system check on computer, changed batteries on camera, changed memory cards. And have tried camera on another Mac. Nothing. I'm pretty sure something is wrong with the camera and it needs a Dr, but figured I ask you all first. Any suggestions?
I was just thinking about buying another Canon, but if they only last two years well then no way . . .
Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
I would try updating your Imagebrowser software on Canon's website second. This may work out some glitches in the software.
Next I would try another USB cord, it could be the cord.
I would try a cardreader as a last resort, cheap $12 any local electronics store.
Also if possible, try the camera on a PC just to see if you get a connection. This will help to isolate the issue and let you know if it is the camera or the computer.
Canon offers free tech support, give them a call if all else fails if you haven't already at this point.
Hope this helps!
