Hi there, I am using canon powershot a80 and Transcend CF 256 Ultra 45x card. Everything was fine until now. I was on my vacation and took some cool pictures. But one day something happened. My camera shows that I can took 40 pictures. So there is about 40 mb free space. But when I switch to play mode, it shows "No image" how can I transfer that photos to my PC? thanx in advance

Try a CF card reader. If that shows no files then try some file recovery software with the card reader acting like a drive. There are some nice freeware programs that might help. It may be that the files are corrupted then the solution is more difficult. Good Luck!

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.

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:

Did you format the card in the camera? Generally you have to do that before you can use it. Try that and see if it doesn't fix your problem.

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.
