Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Downloading to computer

I loaded the software, put new batteries in my camera, plugged everything in and the camera locks up.

I can unplug the camera and then I can navigate around it, I plug it in and it sticks where ever it is when i plug it in.

I can't seem to find the download screen on my camera either. I found the select and I selected all. (197 pics)

I have read and re-read the manuals. HELP!

    When I originally hooked my camera to my computer it automatically uploaded the new photo's. After the first few times, it quit doing this and now I can't figure out how to upload/import my new images. When I click on "Acquire images" or "Connect to Camera", the "Acquire & Camera Settings" option collapses and I'm back where I started -- with no new photo's. ANY help would be appreciated ~ Thanks.

    I figured my solution out and it was soooo simple.
    For some reason my camera would not do what I expected, then I went to Control Panel and clicked on cameras/scanners. There was my camera icon, I clicked on it and I was where I needed to be to download.
    My system is Windows XP.
    Doing fine now, thanks.

Cliff notes version: Try it with the "Solution Disk" in the drive.

Detailed version: I had the same problem, but when I re-installed the "Solution Disk", it said, LEAVE THE DISK IN THE DRIVE. I turned my camera on -- connected to the computer and with the disk in the drive -- and the program started automatically, instructing me to click on the Upload button, which looks like a printer with a cable coming off it (it's to the right of the Delete button and underneath the slide-control that shifts from Camera mode to Preview on my A570IS; it will light up when it's ready).

Before uploading . . . Click on Menu (on camera) to verify your Direct Transfer options. Mine was set on Wallpaper, so it only uploaded the one image and automatically set it as my computer wallpaper. (A neat feature, but not what I was looking for.) Set it to "All images" or "New images" and click on the Upload (lit up) button on the camera.

Note: If it doesn't come up automatically, start the ZoomBrowser program and click on Tasks (to show the menu options below it). The first option is Acquire & Camera Settings; click on that. Then click on the appropriate item (Connect to Camera, Connect to EOS Camera, or Acquire images from Memory Card). You can set it to automatically launch by clicking that option on the main software page.

Finally . . . After it's working, confirm/modify your Preferences in the ZoomBrowser and Utility programs; even if you don't change anything, this will let you know how it's set up.

My new computer is not recognizing the camera after putting the software disc in and downloading it.


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Canon zoombrowser Ex downloading problem


The sd1000 manual says that you will get this error when you have too many pictures on your memory card (aprox 1000). I am not sure how many I had on my 2GB card but it was a lot. I deleted about 50 - 100 pictures and then it started working again and the new pictures downloaded to the computer.

Downloading Images


Downloading images from a digital camera can be very easy if you keep these basic steps in mind. After loading the PhotoMax software on your computer: 1. Make sure that both the camera and computer are turned off. 2. Confirm that the camera has adequate power (using the AC adapter is recommended; otherwise, make sure that there are fresh batteries in the camera). 3. Plug the serial cable that came with your camera into the serial output of the camera. 4. Plug the wide end of the serial cable into the COM port (serial connection) of the computer. 5. Turn the camera on and start the computer. 6. Launch the PhotoMax software (double-click the icon) from the desktop. 7. Click on Get Photo. 8. Click on Album or Camera. 9. Select Twain device from the Acquire From box and click OK. 10. Select your camera from the Select Source box. 11. Click the Acquire icon: (Thumbnails will be displayed). 12. Select images you wish to save from the thumbnails and click on Get Photos. Your images will now be saved to the album you choose.
