Consider 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Cant download photos off SD card. When I try to download photo's it says communication error. My son has the same camera - older version. Tried my SD card in his camera and still couldn't download...


First check the tab on the card, you might have just accidentally pressed the tab. It makes it 'read only' kind of like the old floppy disk (A disks for computers). If this doesn't solve it your pictures are gonners.

You can reformat and it should be good as new. If that doesn't allow it, then its your SD card being corrupted.

Number of photos


You can't get room for more than 33 pictures on a 16MB card.
I'd suggest you buy a bigger SD card for the camera.
Your camera can use up to 2GB cards.

I want to download from Canon A75 to my PC; but the original software (and canon cable) are long gone. Can I simply download from the net??? or is much more complicated than that?? Any help is...


There exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos. Please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue. Just make sure that you purchase one that is stated capable of reading the CF card of your camera (some can only read SD cards).

Writing from pc to memory card in camera


Go with the obvious solution. The camera only lets the computer read the card and delete pictures. It does not let you write to the card.

Be aware that if you've edited the photos in any way (opening a photo in a photo editor and then saving it without making any changes counts as editing) then the camera may not display the picture.

Buy a card reader for cheap and download photos using card reader. Remove SD card from camera and insert into card reader, then hookup card reader to computer through USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Works great and all is inexpensive

I have a canon A530 digital camera and its mode switch on the right top corner has broken and is lost and we cannot download photos to our computer, etc


To download the pictures, remove the SD/MMC card from the camera (in the battery compartment) by pushing on it, then releasing it, and putting it in an SD/MMC card reader connected to your computer.
