There could be a number of problems...

  • Your USB cord is faulty
  • A problem with your memory card
If replacing the cord won't work and if the problem persists you might think about buying a card reader so you'll have to remove your card from the camera and insert in into the reader which is then connected to the computer, that usually always works. Its annoying but its not that bad. Plus card readers aren't that expensive: only about $10+

My computer is not detecting the connection of my camera


Hello, I suggest you purchase a "card reader" that can be used to transfer the images. This is a less expensive solution since the repair would cost over $100.00

Card readers can be purchased at Best Buy, Walmat etc.

Connection of camera to computer


This can cause by a bad usb cable that you're using to connect the camera to the computer, so better try to use another USB cable and also connect the camera to another USB port on your computer so we can check if the USB port is bad or not...

Camera Is Not detected by 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.

My pictures won't upload


What i would do is to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them back again but just don't plug in the camera to the computer until it asks you to or not until it goes (Detecting new Device). Thats what i would do. Usually that fixes the problem. Another thing could be your USB connection is not working check it by plugging in another device to the same port and see what happens. Maybe its you USB connection. Let me know how that goes

Not detected on computer


Here are the steps to take.

1. Establish whether or not you have a connection between your camera/computer by going to your start button, control panel, system, hardware tab and device manager. The camera must be powered on and in playback mode (should automatically go to playback mode when connected, camera's screen should go black if there is a connection). Make sure you have a fully or nearly fully charged battery in your camera.

2. Once in device manager, look under Imaging Devices. If your camera is properly connected it should show up as Canon Powershot SD800. If it shows a yellow exclamation point, there is a driver issue, and even if it doesn't show a yellow exclamation point, you may want to update your driver anyway by right clicking and having the system search automatically for driver updates. If download of driver begins, great...once finished, restart camera and your problem may be resolved.

3. If there are any other imaging devices, you may have to temporarily disable them to avoid conflicts.

4. If you have any other imaging software running, exit or close the program in your system tray (down by your clock in the right hand corner of your computer's desktop.

5. Try again to connect.

6. If you are on a desktop, try a rear usb port vs. a front port. You can also try a different port on a laptop. After each change, try restarting camera to establish connection.

7. Go to start/My Computer and look for the icon for your camera...you will be able to download images even without Canon software loaded onto computer so this is not a software issue if you have no hardware connection. If you see the icon, right click on it and choose Get or Import pictures. From there the default Microsoft scanner and camera wizard should launch and you will be able to import your images.

8. If still no connection, try going to Start/Run and type in services.msc here you are looking for 4 services to be running. Check under status of each service and make sure it reads that each of these services are started.
  • Canon Camera Access Library 8 (if Canon software loaded)
  • SSDP discovery service
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
  • Windows Image Acquisition
Once all of these services are started on your computer, restart camera once again. If any of the last three services are not on your computer or are not started, connecting will be a problem.

If all of these steps fail, try purchasing an SD card reader from your local electronics store for around $12 and download images from there. Canon also offers lifetime technical support for your Powershot, so give them a call if none of these steps work or if you would like someone to walk you through it.

Best of luck to you!
