If using iPhoto, check for software updates. When the newer cameras come out, sometimes it results in incompatibility with the software and they're always working to update this.
Also check your card in your camera. Some of the newer high speed cards struggle with uploads. You can purchase aftermarket high speed card readers and this will allow firewire rapid uploads direct to iPhoto and Aperture.

How do I transfer my pictures to show on facebook ?


You need a computer. You need to transfer the photos from the camera to the PC via the Interface Cable IFC-400PCU and the power shot software that came on the cd. You may be able to get a card reader device and plug the memory card from the camera in the correct memory card slot of the card reader and then browse the photos via the upload photos browse in facebook on the computer.

Canon camera utility won't open on my Mac. I have un and re-installed. The laptop seems to recognize that a camera is plugged in but won't display the camera on-screen to allow upload of photos


Try 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

Some shots on review come up INCOMPATABLE JPEG


It might not be able to display some photos (different sizes or compression) from a different camera or jpeg files copied onto the card from a computer.
If the all the pictures are from the camera then the card could be corrupted. Try recovery software such as the free : http://www.piriform.com/recuva if some files can not be read. Copy the pictures onto a computer then format the card in the camera to erase it.

Which is the better way to upload photos, With a usb connector cable or a card reader


A card reader is usually faster and doesn't depend upon extra power, most/nearly all pros use a card reader,
its all a question of preference I'm a keen photographer but I use my camera direct to transfer photos.
