Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

When I transfer photos from my Canon digital camera SX10 IS to the computer monitor through the card reader all goes well EXCEPT that when I remove the card from the reader and re-insert it in the camera, the screen on the camera back shows the wording "NO IMAGE". This never happened to me before. What am I doing wrong please? Many thanks for helping an oldage pensioner still baffled with computer navigation.

Hello!

I might have understood you incorrectly, but if I do - the NO IMAGE message tells you that there are currently no photos on the memory card.
The way I see it (please correct me if I'm wrong), when connecting the memory card to your computer, you're actually MOVING (or doing cut/paste) the photos from the card to your computer, rather than COPYING (copy/paste) them.

When moving, the original photos from the cards are copied to the computer and get deleted from the card itself - this can explain the NO IMAGE message, as the card is indeed empty now.
When copying, the original photos stay untouched and instead another copy of them is created on the computer. Using this method should not yield the NO IMAGE message...

Hope this information helps you...

Best regards,
Pelu.

I have a canon powershot sx10IS and need the cd rom for my computer. how can i obtain this.


Do you really need the Canon software?

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 such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).


If you really want the SX10 software, you may download it from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/other_powershot/powershot_sx10_is#DriversAndSoftware

Canon sx10is solution disc download wont work on 64 bit hp pc


Let's stop before you get in the bad habit of using bad software in the first place. Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a 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:
