Photos wont download from camera - Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

    Have you considered NOT connecting the camera to the 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.

Having gone over six months without a response, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

When I connect my camera to my laptop it wont download photos. It did download themu p to recently. When I connect my Rebel to my laptop, it won't download the photos.  Worked fine until recently.


Are you using the software to do the download? Or did you take the card out and use a card reader. If you used a card reader, sometimes you have to re-format the card in the camera via the menu before you use it again. Hope this helps.
