Go to your hard drive and click on Applications/Image Capture and it should allow you to choose which camera you are downloading from. This is assuming that your camera is being recognized by the computer. You can find out by turning camera on while connected and in playback mode and going to your apple icon/about this mac/more info and clicking on hardware/usb and your camera model should show up there if it is connecting properly.

If all else fails, try a card reader for downloading, they are known to solve many headaches!

Hope this helps!

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.

Batteries on our A570 drain within hours. Defective camara or?........

If you are using the camera to download your photos to your computer that is probably the problem.
Get a cheap USB card reader and take the card out of the camera and use the reader through the USB port on your computer.
It will behave exactly the same as using the camera except your batteries will last much, much longer.

Well, no matter you photos in Canon camera got deleted, formatted by accident or became inaccessible due to camera memory card errors. Chances of recovery is possible as long as you take the right action.

Take a try of this software to recover Canon photos, Not only general photo formats, but Canon RAW photo formats (.cr2 or .crw) can be retrieved easily.

Note: before the photos are recovered, Never should you attempt to take more photos or save more data to the memory card in case chances of photo recovery might be reduced. Hope it helps. Regards.

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
