If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.

    You can also manually delete some photos so there are less than 1,000 pic and it will connect to your pc. and you can save the photos to your pc/and then format your memory card if desired.

I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC IT GIVES CAMERAS ERRORS WHEN MOUNTING TO A COMPUTER.
THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER, SOME CARDS WORK AND OTHERS DONT - SDHC DOES NOT MOUNT WITH OLDER CARD READER.
HOW I FIGURED THIS OUT WAS, I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER CARD SD CARD IN MY NEW SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, BUT ALL NEW CARDS-SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.
I HOPE THIS HELPS

Just returned from the Himalaya after 2 months with 1000's of images which would not download from the camera (a new Canon G10) - "communication error"!

Spent $20 on a card reader and problem was solved.

Thanks to Undeadmonkey!

    I had the same problem.. :/ My camera contained over 3,000 images, and as i tried to download them to my computer, on the display of the camera stod something like "communication error". I tried to delete some of the pics so that my camera contained under 3,000 images, and then it worked. ;)

You can also manually delete some photos so the memory card has less than 1,000 pictures. Then your camera will connect to pc and you can save your photos and then format/delete all photos from the memory card if desired. This worked for me!

SOURCE: I have plugged my camera into my computer on its

Hi, firstly check that the camera software is properly installed. It's sometimes worth re-installing it in case of a corruption. Next check the battery life in the camera is good, next unplug the camera cable and try it in a different usb port. if this still hasn't cured the problem, if you can try a replacement lead and if not, find a friend who will ;let you install your camera on their computer to rest it. If there is STILL no communication, I'm afraid you'll have to take then camera to a repair shop. hope this helps

The work flow should be first make sure the camera has enough power to do the transfer from the memory card to the computer turn off the camera. Connect the USB cable to the computer with the computer on. connect the USB cable to the camera mini USB port and turn on the camera. The computer will see this possibly as a new device and then accept it as an external drive or "Mass Storage Device"

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 any photo cataloging program.
