Question about Digital Cameras

Camera Won't Mount

Brand new camera; I successfully uploaded pics from camera to computer one time using USB cable.  This time the camera won't even mount.  I have checked and re-done connections, put in all four new batteries, etc.  iPhoto opened, and the last picture taken shows briefly on the monitor of the camera, but then it goes dark and turns off.  When I click on the camera icon in the dock, I get "No camera found."  I have spent about 45 minutes so far trying to troubleshoot this myself.  Please help!  I have an iMac with OSX.5.2 installed.

Didn't realize I had sent you the email.  I called Canon, and they were great.  With the use of my husband's identical camera, we determined that I hadn't formatted the new card I was using, not the little one that came with the camera which I first used.  It made the camera turn off every time I tried to upload (download?) the pics to the camera. The formatting is not always necessary with every camera, but it apparently is with this one.  Doing it was fast and easy.  
Hope this helps you help other folks like me!

How can i upload pics from sansung es25 to computer without usb cable, i have lost that cable.


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.

Memory card showing 'no image' after trying to upload


Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnected the USB cable. This can corrupt the card and even the camera. You could try using a separate card reader to download the pics from the card. If that works, and the pics are safely downloaded, then you should format the card in the camera to erase and optimize it. If it doesn't work, take the card to a Walmart that has a Kodak Picture Kiosk and it should be able to read your card. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.
