    Have you considered 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 (http://picasa.google.com ).

I have a cannon powershot a80 and it keeps saying no memory card on my screen when i turn the power on.


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

My Window 7 can not detect my PowerShot SD800 IS from USB. I can not using Canon software detect camera


Thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

I am not sure if you have attempted to run Canon's most current driver update for the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS, but here is the link for that driver.

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Drivers for Windows 7

This driver is for Windows 7, 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

What you may want to try first, is to disconnect your camera from your PC, install this driver update and then connect the PowerShot and see if it will detect it.

Driver updates are usually the first steps to take in troubleshooting device connection issues with PCs.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Canon Powershot A300 on XP


Its best start again, completely remove the current drivers you have installed and do a restart.

Now shutdown the PC and plug the camera to your PCs using the USB lead and turn the camera on & set to USB mode. Start your PC and login as usual - XP should pick up your camera automatically.

If it still doesnt pick it up you might want to update XP to atleast SP2 or try another USB lead.

If this helps please vote..thankyou and good luck!

Windows Vista does not recognize Canon PowerShot A80


Vista requires updated drivers for most of the older cameras. Unfortunately, Canon chose not to update the drivers for many of these cameras, including the A80. BUT please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue. Just make sure that you get one that's stated capable of reading a CF card:

If nothing else works, try using a usb card reader to get the pictures into the computer's hard drive.
A nice usb card reader is available in all electronics stores such as Best Buy, Walmart, RadioShack, and so on.

Connection between camera and computer


What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP


I had same problem: ZoomBrowser had been working fine on XP sp2, but today I found it could no longer detect the camera. My guess is some operating system patch caused it to stop working. I finally got it working again by doing the following:

1) Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ , select Powershot G1 as the product, and get the list of available updates.

2) Download and install the latest version of ZoomBrowser (6.0.1).

3) Download and (re-)install the USB driver ( Canon Digital Camera WIA Driver 3.9.1). It will probably tell you it's already installed, but continue with the install anyway. It will also warn you that the driver isn't certified for XP, but ignore that and continue.

4) Reconnect the camera to the USB port on the computer and put it into upload mode. *Now* a window should pop up with a selection of programs you can launch, including ZoomBrowser. Yay!

Hope this helps.
