Hi You did not specify whether your PC OS or camera model ,normally PC recognizes the new connections especially on Windows7 .Anyway,You can download the original camera driver from its own web page..If you were given these info ,I could have helped you..sorry Additionally ,the easiest way of downloading your picture is thru a USB CARD Reader unless your PC do not have card reader ,. And take off the memory card of the camera and by using USB or built-in reader you can download all pictures.. Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks
So camera doesn't give live view to take picture? and you can view old / stored pictures OK, is it?
If yes, then it is problem of CCD imager in Canon A80 and this part needs to be replaced.

YOUR PROBLEM MAY BE SIMPLE. IF YOU ARE USING THE ORIGINAL MEMORY CARD THAT CAN INSTALLED IN YOUR CAMERA THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS CARD IS JUST FULL AND HAS NO ROOM FOR ANY OTHER PICTURES. THE STANDARD CARD FOR THE SD-750 IS A 32MB-SD MEMORY CARD THAT WILL HOLD APRX. 20 PICTURES AT A NORMAL JPEG 3072 X 1728 MPIXEL RATING. YOU MIGHT TRY EITHER DOWNLOADING THE ONBOARD PICTURES TO CLEAR THE MEMORY, OR INSTALL A NEW HIGHER CAPACITY SD CARD. I WOULD RECOMMEND A 4 GIG CARD. THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, PLEASE REPLY TO ARCLIGHT 1217. GOOD LUCK! IT THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE VOTE! THANKS!
HI! THE DATE, TIME STAMP IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE CANON SD750 IN THE POST CARD MODE. THIS IS WHY IT WON'T LET YOU CHOSE IT IN OTHER MODES. SORRY, BUT FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON, CANON ONLY SET IT UP FOR THAT SINGLE MODE. IF THIS WAS HELPFUL, PLEASE VOTE! THANKS! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217.
PROBABLY NOT, BUT WHAT YOU MIGHT DO IS SEE IF A REPAIR SHOP WOULD AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF IT IS AT ALL REPAIRABLE AND GIVE YOU A QUOTE. CHANCES ARE THE REPAIR WILL BE SO COSTLY, IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE CAMERA. SORRY, BUT THIS IS ABOUT THE BEST SOLUTION I CAN OFFER IN THIS CASE. YOU CAN FIND CAMERA REPAIR ON GOOGLE UNDER CANON POWERSHOT REPAIR SERVICE. IF I CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE FOR YOU REPLY TO:
I'M SORRY TO SAY BUT I BELIEVE THAT YOUR ONBOARD MEMORY IS CORRUPT. YOU PROBABLY WON'T BE ABLE TO RECOVER THOSE PICTURES. I THINK YOU NEED TO FORMAT YOUR ONBOARD MEMORY TO GET IT WORKING AGAIN. UNTIL YOU KNOW FOR SURE THAT IT IS WORKING, I WOULD USE A MEMORY CARD. ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF THE CANON SOFTWARE? I PERSONNALLY NEVER USE THE ONBOARD MEMORY BECAUSE I FEEL THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A CHANCE TO LOSE THE IMAGES. I WOULD USE A 4 GIG SD MEMORY CARD THAT WOULD GIVE YOU A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF PICTURES AND THE SAFETY OF BEING ABLE TO REMOVE THE CARD FROM THE CAMERA AND USE A CARD READER OR YOUR COMPUTER IF IT HAS SD SLOTS. I HOPE THIS CLEARS YOUR PROBLEM UP,EVEN IF IT DOESN'T HELP RECOVER YOUR PHOTO'S. I'M SORRY ABOUT THIS. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
