    iphoto v6.0.6 will not download video files from my canon powershot sd 1100. i know the video files exist because i can watch them on the camera and can download using a (borrowed) card reader, but i'd like to be able to pull them directly off the camera into iphoto. my mac is running osx v10.4.11.

    I have the same exactly problem but different OS. I'm trying also to get 2 really long videos of my daughter off my card. I have Windows XP, SP2, have a Canon Powershot SD750. I never have any problems with videos, but two long ones (each over 1 gb) will result in errors in Adobe Photo Album when I tried to download. When I manually copy the files from my camera to the computer they copy, but show up as 0kb (and they obviously have no data and don't play).



    Any comparable suggestions for the Windows folks out there?

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.

Software lost on old computer for powershot sd1000


You don't need any additional software.


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Canon PowerShot SD850 sound files not downloadable to Mac


I had the same problem. On my macbook I open the image capture application (in my applications folder) and a list of all the files (not just photos) on my camera comes up. Here I can choose to import the wav files and the movie (avi) files. I usually just save them to a folder and when I play them my mac finds the right player automatically. Good luck.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

CANON SD1000 can't TURN vertical downloaded video into horizontal


If you have windows movie maker (its part of the default installation of windows XP) you can use the rotate filter in the video effects tools.
Import your video into movie maker and select "Video Effects" under tools.  Scroll through the various effects until you find the "rotate 90".  Apply the effect and save the video.
I hope this helps!

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5


Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...
