Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Video will not download

I have a question and am really hoping some one here can help me.

I have a Canon powershot S3IS which i have had for about a yr now and i do like it.

Last night while i was out fishing and shooting some video for one of my shows the camera or should i say memory card ran out of space so i deleted some previous videos that i had on they're and started to record again.

Now the issue i am having is two of the video clips will download to my computer fine but forsome reason the one clip after i did some deleteing will not download to my pc.

After allmost two blooming days i have finally managed to get it downloaded on my computer through quicktime. I am on Vista by the way. But i cannot get it to open and play .The video footage plays back fine on the camera visually and sound are all good it just will not download to my computer.

Any help would be very very much appreciated.

Thankyou so much.

Can i get my photos back, i formatted my canon powershot S3IS camera?


Ok, yes, you will be able to get some, if not all of your photos back. Firstly we will need to download Discdigger in order to perform the recovery operation.

Click HERE to download.

Once the download is complete, you will need to install the software. After the installation process, you will need to place you memory card into your computer, using an adapter. Now, run DiscDigger on the memory card.

Hope this can be of help.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind regards
