Question about Canon PowerShot S200 / IXUS 178 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi I have a Canon Ixus 200 IS. When I first used it I downloaded photos no problem onto both my laptop and home desktop. Now though I am getting an error - do not recognise USB device - or something similar. So I took the memory card out tried in a different camera - an older Canon Ixus - but it said that card was locked. Any ideas?

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.

As for the locked card, look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
