    I have a MacBook Pro. The camera was operating properly when out of the blue it would not download anything except the first photo. Then it stopped altogether. Now all I get is the "No image capture connected" message. What happened? I changed the batteries, checked the connections, took out and replaced the CF card.

    I have the same problem. My computer recognizes my scanner, but not my camera. Worked fine not too long ago? what do I need to do?

    I have contacted Canon repeatedly and they do not even bother to respond. Great customer service, huh? I will NEVER buy another product they market. What did work for me? I bought a memory card reader for $15. I take the card out of the camera, insert it into the reader which connects to my MacBook via the USB port, and download my pix. Voila!

    My camera worked fine on my MAC until very recently.  Now I can use other cameras, but not this one.  Image capture doesn't even recognize that anything is plugged in.

Instructions for downloading pictures from canon

You can either use the USB cable that came with your camera, which will be recognized as an external peripheral by your PC when you plug it in.

Easier way is to use a smart card reader (those are now available just about anywhere at prices starting at about $5) that will plug into a USB port on your PC and will be recognized as an external drive by your PC.

In both cases, you transfer files between the (camera or smart card reader) and your PC the same way you would transfer regular files between directories on your PC.

Canon powershot a75 digital camera USB device not recognized

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.
