There are different causes for this problem. Shutdown your computer then turn it back on. If that does not fix it there may be a USB device driver on the computer that conflicts with the device sort of a Ghost device. Go to the link below for some tips on fixing this problem.

MacBook Pro won't recognize canon powershot SD400


Hello. You need to probably reinstall the drivers. but first you have to remove the drivers that are all ready installed. first unplug your usb cord. then to remove the drivers allready installed,, on your computer, press start, then when the box open's up, then right click on computer. another box will open up. then left click at the bottom of that box on properties. another box will open up, then click on device manager. after you click on device manager another box will open up with all your devices. look for the previous camera you had installed. it might be under imaging devices. once you locate that, then right click on it. then choose uninstall. Make sure you have your new software loaded in your cd/dvd rom drive. after it is done uninstalling, just restart your computer. at the bottom right of your screen, it should say, found new device, it will ask you from where do you want to load the new drivers for it. click on the drive that contains the software. it then will load your new drivers up. It then should communicate with your camera. Hope this helps. Ron

Pictures not loading to computer


It sounds like you don't have software on your PC that will recognize the camera when connected. I am going to recommend that you do not use the camera to upload photos. It is better practice to use external (SD) memory cards and remove them from the camera to upload. You can use a USB SD reader or purchase SD cards with a built-in USB interface. You should be able to see a new drive when connecting the SD card to your computer; then all you need to do is copy over the images. One advantage is that you will save camera battery while uploading because you dont need the camera at all. It also allows you to take images with you without taking the camera, i.e. school or work. I hope this helps...californiajones7889e54.jpg67432f4.jpg4db3d64.jpg

Windows XP doesn't recognize my new Canon SD1100 camera even after loading software as instructed.


It is very simple you guys! I had the same problem with my Windows XP SP3 and SOLVE IT EASY!

1. Unplug all your USB devices. If you have hubs, unplug only the devices attached to the hub, not the hub from the computer.

2. Open the registry and delete the following 6 branches.
H_L_M\System\ControlSet001\Enum\USB

H_L_M\System\ControlSet001\Enum\USBPRINT

H_L_M\System\ControlSet001\Enum\USBSTOR

H_L_M\System\ControlSet002\Enum\USB

H_L_M\System\ControlSet002\Enum\USBPRINT

H_L_M\System\ControlSet002\Enum\USBSTOR

3. Restart your computer and attach one by one your USB devices. If you have hubs, first let the OS to recognize your hubs, then attach the USB devices.

Your Digital Camera should be recognized immediately by the system. If you don't have your Digital Camera software installed you can use Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard to upload your photos.

Not responding to my laptop


The most common cause associated with the PC not detecting the camera is due to the fact that either the devie drivers have not been installed, or are corrupt. It is important to thoroughly read the Software Installation instruction manual as with some Cameras, the user is required to connect the Camera via the USB cable first, then insert the CD that came with the camera and then install the software and drivers. With other Cameras, the reverse is necessary, eg., you are required to install the software first and then connect the Camera via the USB cable. My experience has convinced me that even though Camera manufacturers recommend one or other of the 2 methods mentioned above, for whatever reason, sometimes the drivers just don't get installed. This may be due to things peculiar to your own pc system or conflicts with other software on your machine which prevent successful installation of the camera software or drivers. If this is the case, then you can access Device Manager in your PC and scroll down to USB Serial Bus Controllers and check to see if the USB and other drivers are installed. In most cases if the software has been installed but the drivers are not, or are corrupt, this will be highlighted in Device Manager with a Large Yellow ? (question mark) From there you have the option to check if the device drivers have been installed and also if the device is reported as working correctly. You may then engage the help of the Hardware Wizard to uninstall the drivers if they are corrupt, or install them if they are missing. Whichever is the case, it is usually necessary to restart your PC so that it can detect the camera when it has rebooted up. To locate Device manager on XP > click on Start > then right click My Computer > next left click Properties from the drop down menu > and then from the Sytem Properties Window which comes up, > left click on the Hardware Tab > then left click on the Device Manager Box and you're there.
