Question about Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera
All of a sudden can't download todays pictures from my Canon to PC. Usually, Zoombrowser ex comes on automatically. Today, I get "communication error" prompt. I can see pictures on camera but can't get to download using cannon software that came with camera. What can I do to get pictures to my pc from camera asap?
Rose similar problem with a g7. plug the camera into the usb port with the supplied cable which usually brings up the eos utility on the computer and the transfer option on the camera. used it last night which worked fine, today i just get the communication error message. i've replaced the battery, plugged into a different usb port, unplugged and plugged the camera/cable connection and opened the eos utility that only has the monitor folder hi-lited, also replaced the memory chip with an older filled one that appears to have made contact with the application.
Try updating the Zoombrowser software.
If you have a connection to the camera, go into my computer and get images directly off the camera using scanner and camera wizard, microsoft's default program. This will at least allow you to transfer your images until you can resolve the software problem.
If you have no connection to the camera via your computer, you need to try some other troubleshooting steps to get a connection. I will post those below in the next post.

Communication error is what the G7 told me. It turned out to be: too many pictures too download! The Canon website suggested this as a problem and were right on. Using the continuous drive mode I had taken thousands of pictures and had to delete some to get it to download and it worked like a charm.
