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.

I keep getting error -36 like some of my files are corrupted is there anything I can do?

If you are getting a corrupted data message you can try to run disk cleanup on the drive to see if this fixes the problem.

If this does not fix the problem then you will need to backup your files off the drive and do a full format. If you still have trouble after formatting the drive this is a sign that the drive is failing.

Can not down load photos into computer. Have cord also disk


install the driver from the disk ..and after that connect the camera to teh computer ..it will start the install wizard and after that will prompt you and say that the device is installed and ready to use..Be sure during all these operations the camera is charged and on ...some cameras will ask for confirm on the display in the moment of the plugging ...confirm the pc connect and thats all...Either will start an autoplay asking you what you want to do ...open containing folder or import using wizard ..or will do nothing and in this case ..if there was a software on the disk run it ..and import using it ..if there wasn't any import manager on the disk ..than you should use a photo manager like ACDsee..cause it has a import from device feature..(you can also use the windows picture manager ..if you have it installed..
or...usually after finishing the installation and restart the computer you will find the device or the removable storage inside the my computer folder..just open it and copy pictures from it into computer ..

Problem downloading image


One of the images did not finish writing to the card properly (usually in the last 4 or 5 images, or the last video)
Try selecting all but the last 10 images and chose import selected. This should work. Then delete those from the card.
This bit is important
Put the card back in the camera (if it's in a usb reader) if not, disconnect the camera and put it into playback mode. View the remaining 10 images/video.
Try re importing and it should work fine! I've had this problem since ilife '09 and this method always fixes it. It seems to happen when the cards get full. Try not to completely fill a memory card and you should not get the problem.
