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.

SOURCE: canon powershot a560 troubleshooting

this is not a big issue.
after delting your DISK and installing your OS again removes al r programs from your computer. now you must install the camera EOS software in your system again.
this can be done by using the software disk which come with the camera. even if you dont have the disk the software can be donwloaded from canons site itself.

1'st thing. You don't have an EOS camera so you won't be able to use EOS utility.

SOURCE: EOS Utility program cant download pictures.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. You may fix it, but it will pop up again some day. Camera/cable interface problems are notorious. But why put up with the headache of these software problems? Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone alternative way to download your photos:

SOURCE: Can't download with EOS Utility

Try to change connection type to PC on camera menu. Maybe you have a print/ppt connection set.

SOURCE: cannon error 05

Error 05 means that something mechanically prevents built in flash to pop up. Ensure that nothing is blocking flash. Switch in P mode and press flash button to pop it up. If it does not pop up - try _gently_ to help it to pop up. If you succed in popping up the flash - check it for any dirt with can prevent flash from popping up.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

USB connection with the camera causes computer to crash.


Try using a different USB cable. The connections between cameras and computers usually are problematic. A card reader will allow you to download the pictures from the SD card, without problems and saving your camera's battery power supply

CANON Powershot A560


Windows 2000 and Windows Millenium (98 ME) are two different operating systems. Either cam won't work with 98 or computer is too old to work with camera. Find a local computer store that does custom computers and ask them for help.

Not acquiring pictures with any software


don't think it was the cable, they are a standard usb interface cable.
Had a similar problem, when I installed software for a new camera interface.
you can manually open the cannon software once the camera is hooked up to your computer. Its called "camera window" default install is start>all programs>cannon utilities>camerawindow>poweshot>camerawindow
