Consider NOT attaching 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.

Computer saying no new pics but there are!


If you cannot get another reader to see the card and a direct USB connection from the camera to the PC doesn't see them either, then do a Quick Format in the computer and use an image recovery program to retrieve the photos. SanDisk RescuePro works great. Just don't shoot anything on the card until after you use the recovery software and it should get all your images back just fine.

When on play mode, one picture shows up as a tiny thumbnail image and reads "cannot retrieve image." No pictures after that one will load onto my computer. HELP!


Camera can have the same issues just like computer... crashes, that's happens most of the time when you work with your equipment and not when you don't use it; it deletes or corrupts your files.

You can try to recover your files on your digital camera card by installing file recovery software - Recuva (its free)

SanDisk Extreme III 4GB, unable to retrieve the 500 images on it.


SanDisk Extreme cards are supposed to ship with RecoveryPro software which should help you get the photos back. If the software is not on your card you may be able to get it from their website or another SanDisk card.

I cannot review pictures on my Canon PowerShot A400


Yes, the first thing to try is a new memory card. They do go bad. As for the current card, hang onto it. You still may be able to retrieve the photos once you get back to your computer using retrieval software. See this link.

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.

Missing Photos Canon Rebel XTi


You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".

It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.

But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).
