Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.

Try uninstalling your camera, then reinstalling it.  to do this, right click on "My Computer" left click "Properties" in the properties menu, click on "Hardware", go to "imaging devices" right click the camera model, left click uninstal, then reconnect the camera and it should reset.  hope this helps!

SOURCE: Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

SOURCE: Computer cannot detect Camera

I had the same problem and went to Canon's website and upgraded to the most recent version 6.1 of Zoombrowser EX. It started working immediately. If it doesn't work then uninstall the software, make sure it doesn't show up in device manager then reinstall the original software. Plug in the camera and see if you get the error. If so reinstall the most recent version and I'll bet it works

SOURCE: download pictures

Your camera should have come with a USB cable to plug into your computer. Plug the camera in and make sure it is turned on. You may have to wait a few seconds while your computer installs a driver for the camera. When it is done a window will popup asking what you want to do with the camera. Click Import Pictures and follow the wizard.

I am unable to download my pics onto my computer. As soon as I plug in cord going into the "AV/Out Digital" spot on the camera, the camera turns off. It will not stay on. I checked the battery and it is...


All cameras do this. As soon as you plug in the cord, the display will turn black. It is completely normal.
If the pictures aren't showing up on computer, make sure the latest drivers are downloaded for your camera. Also you can use, picture transfer or kodak easy share program to download.
Another way is to go to 'my computer" than either f: or g: drive should have your camera on it. You can access pictures here and drag n drop into another file.
