When it was dropped the gears in the lens assmbly were jammed if you can open the case to get to the assembly it's not to hard to fix you should see the gear that jammed and be able to fix it with a small screw driver

It suggests that the USB socket on the camera is damaged.

It's not cost effective to repair it, so just remove the memory card from the camera and transfer files using an external card reader. It's usually a lot quicker this way as well.

If that camera uses a memory card, just buy a cheap card reader for about $10 at wallyworld or an electronics store. It is easier and no software or connection problems.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see this article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your videos and photos.

Lost my Canon PowerShot A560 disk


As a solution I highly recommend that you forego the old cable to the camera route, and instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are very inexpensive, much much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of headache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

For the Powershot A560:

2. Select a picture using the right or left arrow buttons on the back of the camera.
3. Press the button with an icon of a trash can.
4. A menu comes up:

Erase? Erase Cancel

5. Select "Erase", then press "FUNC. SET."

Canon A560 Lost 2 days of images


You should try photo recovery software to rescue the lost images, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your images are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your images) are overwritten.
