    Have you considered 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.

I have found that some USB cord are designed for certain porducts, and only work with there copanion. Try a canon USB cable and be sure the camera is set to send data and turn on. If that works then it's the cable!

Connecting the camera to the computer requires that you install the software that came with the camera. If you didn't do that, you can still download your pics using a separate card reader. typrice_217.jpg

Lost my connection cord to go from the camara to computer. Where I can I buy a new one?


Consider NOT using the USB cord.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Format, cant open photos, cant take photos


Hi there.
The camera is asking you to format the camera card.
If you have any pictures you want on the card, connect it to a PC and transfer the data from it, then put it back in the camera and do what it asks you too do.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Usb cord won't fit all of a sudden


Something could have broke off inside the connector. Try to look in side and see if there is anything blocking the connection. Tweezers can help out and pull out stuff that is blocking. Make sure that the camera is powered off. Better remove the battery to play it safe also. Check the condition of the USB cable that goes into the camera make sure it's not bent or dented. You can use a small needle nose pliers to fix that if it is.

CAMARA SOFTWARE PROBLEM


Does your battery work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? They have higher voltage than NiMH rechargeable. I'm having a similar problem, just discovered today that my camera works fine with AA alkaline batteries.
