Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
All of a sudden can't download todays pictures from my Canon to PC. Usually, Zoombrowser ex comes on automatically. Today, I get "communication error" prompt. I can see pictures on camera but can't get to download using cannon software that came with camera. What can I do to get pictures to my pc from camera asap?
Rose similar problem with a g7. plug the camera into the usb port with the supplied cable which usually brings up the eos utility on the computer and the transfer option on the camera. used it last night which worked fine, today i just get the communication error message. i've replaced the battery, plugged into a different usb port, unplugged and plugged the camera/cable connection and opened the eos utility that only has the monitor folder hi-lited, also replaced the memory chip with an older filled one that appears to have made contact with the application.
my camera is connected i have tried everything and it keeps saying cannot connect to camera please check connection to camera and retry.....i tried unpluging it turning it on and off taking the car in and out i dont know what to do.
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.

Communication error is what the G7 told me. It turned out to be: too many pictures too download! The Canon website suggested this as a problem and were right on. Using the continuous drive mode I had taken thousands of pictures and had to delete some to get it to download and it worked like a charm.
