I just needed to switch the camera to playback before trying to download photos. Should have read the instructions more closely!

Zoom Browser cannot recognize my Canon Powershot G3


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

Won't download pictures onto new lapto computer


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 such as Picasa.

Canon PowerShot A520 dowload problems


ya. picassa wont do any help to you brother. you may have connected the camera and switched it ON right?
after switching it ON change it to play back mode( mode in whih you see your photos) that time only camera detects the computer.

even if this is not working try a different cable to connect it.

else use your friends system to check if camera is really faulty.

even if its not working take it to service center. dont forget to take your warranty card and purchase bill there.

My computer does not recognize camera software


I had the same problem. I am not in any way a computer guy. The problem was, I had been downloading the pictures from my Canon digital Camera onto a Dell desktop with windows XP through the front USB port for years, no problems. One day, it just stopped working, and I would get a "unknown device" message when I went into the device manager. If I tried to open up the software that came with the camera and clicked "start image transfer" , I would get "camera not found" Anyway, I googled it, and found on one forum somewhere someone suggested the culprit could be a newly downloaded or upgraded version of realplayer. So I went into realplayer tools, preferences. I turned off the automatic updates and message center and re-booted as instructed. I plugged in the camera, and it worked. If the person who posted that information is reading this, I thank you. I would have NEVER figured that out, and would likely be buying a new camera for no reason.

I know this issue occurred with me when I had a service not running for WinXP OS. If you are using WinXP, check for this service, start it before connecting the camera and switching it on. Canon Camera Access Library 8
