16GB Transcend Card Locked


The S2 works with SD cards. Your 16GB card is an SDHC card and will only work in devices (like the A720) that have been designed to work with them. For the S2, you need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

When I connect my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS camera to either of two laptops via USB cable, I get an error message stating "USB Device Not Recognized - One of the USB devices attached to this computer...


I had this problem today and you might want to check this
from PC's menu = go to my computer right click and select properties
select device manager,
locate "canon camera" which may be under portable devices as mine was
There is either a plus or minus sign next to it. If it is negative as mine, delete this driver. Make sure your camera is off and unplugged before you delete it.
Plug camera in, turn on and the camera should download the driver again.
It worked for me - I'm not technically brilliant but basically, the driver wasn't working correctly.
If you can't find the same settings, call customer service - they were great.

I have tried downloading pictures from my Canon a720 to both my pc and my Mac, neither computer recognizes the camera. I am not sure what to try next.


Consider 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 iPhoto (on the Mac) or any other photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ) (on the Windows machine).

Unable to download pictures


In the short term you can take the memory card out and use a card reader - at least that will let you see the pictures.

In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera.
