Troubleshooting the camera displaying Communication Error when connected to the computer via USB. If the camera displays "Communication Error," when trying to download images the main cause for this error is that there are more than 1000 images stored on the memory card. It is recommended if there are more than 1000 images on the memory card, that you use a card reader to acquire the images, or to delete images off of the memory so that there are less than 1000 images to download from the memory card.
If this is not the case, there are not 1000 or more images on the memory card, try reconnecting the camera to abnother port on the computer, try another cable or another computer. This error can also display when connecting to a direct print printer. Please check with the printer manufacturer for more information on this error.

Thank you very much, Duane...this hadn't happened before when uploading photos. Usually the memory card maxes-out 1rst.
I guess it depends on how many pixels the photos are made up of.

You do understand that for Canon cameras, the battery does not charge while the camera is connected to the USB port? The process of actually transferring pictures with the USB cable uses the camera's battery power, and thus you will need to recharge the battery after doing a transfer. To charge, you will need to remove the battery from the camera and insert it into a charger. If you do not have a charger, here's a good generic one for your particular battery.

I hav lost canon ixus 100 is softwear cd want to install it on my new labtop


The IXUS 100 is called the SD780 in some parts of the world. You can download software for the SD780 from the manufacturer's web site at

You might want to 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

The zoom browser does not recognise the camera is connected to PC


Windows updates change the registry. Sometimes this means our connected equipment no longer works. Now it is time for you to start using a separate card reader.

You can download a manual and order a USB cable from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8775

Before you buy another USB cable, consider this: 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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".
