    Thanks for trying, but, I have not place to put the card reader in my computer, it doesn't have one. I've already tried. and the cable is brand new, never been used. It's hard to believe it would have a short.

    Thanks anyways.

  • kaleenasmema Jun 13, 2008

    Thanks again for the suggestion, but I already went to Sam's Club and downloaded the pictures on a CD, so I know the card is good, but, I would like to know how to download future pictures to the computer without having to take it to the store for the disk. and then downloading.

    Thanks again,

You can remove the memory card from the camera and put into a card reader if your computer has one.

It could be the cable between your camera and the computer is shorted. You might have to replace it.

    You could take the memory card to Walgreens, Costco, or a drug store and see if it can read the card. Sometimes the info on the cards can get corrupted.

    I've had some bad usb cables on new equipment short out on me. If you can get a replacement cable and it works then that should get you up and running.



    Canon is pretty good about replacing them for free if its a new purchase and you call and tell them about it.

Go to this website and select windows 7(32) or (64) depends on what version you are using then on the categories select sound and click Realtek Audio Driver for Windows 7 (32/64)(v6.0.1.5904; 09-03-2009; 60.61M) then click the red download now button to start downloading the driver. After downloading, install the driver that you have downloaded to update the sound driver of your laptop. If prompted for a restart, restart your computer then check your computer for a sound.

If the driver you downloaded will not fix the audio problem, you have to return to it's original operating system (windows vista) of your laptop by reformatting from a clean installation using windows vista installer.

Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007. Have a nice day.

Cannot download pictures on new laptop with Windows Vista


If your camera is not relatively new and you're running Vista, Vista may have problems seeing it. Unfortunately, this can't be corrected as Canon did not update the drivers for Vista for many of its older cameras. But there exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos. Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB 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:

When plugged into laptop the camera does NOT load the pictures.


Try 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.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
