Question about Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi I have a Canon A460 which has worked fine. My problem is with the transfer of images to the computer. I get either a message saying camera not found or I get a message saying camera detected with a box underneath where I would expect to see zoombrowser or another software to launch the action. The box is empty so I can't select anything. This has only just happened recently. Probably around the time I installed a Canon MP270 printer/scanner (which is a pig to use). Thanks Pat

Well, obviously your registry has changed and your camera is no longer recognized. No problem....just get a card reader and use it in place of your camera. That's what the pros do.

Unable to display imges when connected to computer.


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:

Transferring of pictures


you can just plug the camer to the computer using the USB cable it came with or any USB cable that will fit.

once connected your computer will install the needed files, just wait until it says done or "installed and ready to use".

after that go to "my computer" then look for an item there that has a camera name or a "removable storage", double-click on it.

usually the images will be in a folder that says DCIM

-i have a Canon A460, so it should be the same folder.

if you have other questions just lemme know okay...

Getting Pictures Off Camera


Have you looked in my computer for the camera??  Try running the camera and scanner wizard in accessories from the start menu.  If this does not work, go to control panel>printers and other hardware and click on scanners and cameras.  If your model is not there then click an an imaging device (top left under imaging tasks) and follow the steps putting in your model ect.
If all of this fails then there are other possibilities 
  • Faulty cable
  • Faulty USB port
  • Problem with your camera
  • Problem with your software from camera
Hope this helps

The simplest solution is to buy a USB card reader.  Once you place your card from the camera into the reader, it can be mounted like any disk/hard drive.  From there, drag&drop/copy/etc images like any other file.
