Hi there! I hope you can help me! When I hook my camera up to my computer to download the images, the camera always powers off before all of the images are downloaded. I've tried fully charging the battery before downloading the images, but that only works some of the time. For example, most recently, I was unable to get the last 2 pictures from an event off of my camera b/c the camera kept turning off and powering off. Is it the camera? The battery? The cord that is used to transfer the images?
Has this been happening all the time since you got the camera?
My guess is that If the camera starts up again after powering off, it probably isn't the battery.
Can you try downloading only half of the images at a time? I'm thinking it may go into sleep mode after awhile if you're downloading a lot of photos. What format are you using, jpg? RAW? raw are really big files. What's your megapizel size?

Hi, I would like to suggest you another way to transfer your photos to your system. 1. Remove the memory card from your camera and connect it to a memory card reader and connect the card reader to your system to transfer the pictures to your system. I hope this is helpful to you. Thanks
Your camera may not be compatible with Windows Vista. What I would recommend doing is getting a separate card reader, and when you want to download your photos, you have to take the memory card out of the camera and put it in the card reader. Then you can see all the photos on the card as if it were a normal folder on your computer.
did you turn of the camera?
the camera need to be on for the PC to detected the memory card.
you also going to need the Arcsoft PhotoImpression software. However, the software is going to cost you $40. if you lost the CD that came with the camera.
you should be view the photo with any of teh photo software you have on the machine.
i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.
rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.
-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.
By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures
folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your
Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download
To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.
Hmm, there isn't a little viewing screen?
Anyway, you can download the images to your computer and view them there. Either hook the camera up to your computer via the cable that came with it.
Or, you'll need a card reader & take the card out and hook up the reader to the 'puter and insert card.
If you're using Xp a image downloading wizard thingy will pop-up and walk you thru the process.
If not, after hooking camera or card up to 'puter, click on "my computer" find your device and click on it to open & view photos there.
And transfer images to your computer too.
