Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Computer won't recognize camera.

I transferred pictures from my camera to computers like 100 times just using the wizard that pops up when you plug the USB cable in. Then one time, I plugged the camera in, and the wizard came up like normal, but then I got distracted and left it for an hour or two. When I got back, the wizard was frozen, so I tried to restart it, but nothing happened. I tried different USB ports, restarting the computer, trying different computers, and a different USB cable, but in no scenario will any of the 3 computers I have tried (all 3 have worked previously) recognize that the camera is plugged in. Also, I don?t know if this is related, but when the camera is in review mode, it is frozen when the USB cable is plugged into it. This issue is not addressed in Canon?s owner?s manual. Please help. A digital camera is useless if it can?t talk to a computer!

I don't know how much of a solution this is (I have the same problem now), but my computer actually has a slot where the memory card can be inserted by itself. It isn't as convenient, but I can transfer pictures directly from the memory card to the computer.

MacBook Air won't recognize Nikon s8200

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 or any other photo management program.

Load pictures to computer to share

Hello
Here are some ways to transfer data from camera to computer:-
Run the software that came with your camera. Pop the CD into your computer and go through the setup steps. The only way you'll be able to transfer is if you have the software installed. If you bought the camera used or, for one reason or another, just don't seem to have the CD, you can probably find a used or maybe even a new one on eBay. You might be able to find it somewhere else as well.
Connect the camera to the computer. Let's face it, the pictures aren't going to the computer if there is no cord to connect them. Most of the time, you'll hear a sound or something will pop-up if the camera is connected properly and working.
Sync the camera to the computer and transfer the pictures. With most camera software, as soon as you connect the camera to the computer and it recognizes it, something will pop up asking if you would like to sync the pictures to the computer. After that it's pretty self-explanatory. If nothing pops up or it never was supposed to pop up in the first place, open the camera program. Most likely you'll be able to find your way from there. If not, read your camera manual. It should tell you even more than this how-to.
Another option is to buy a Memory Card Reader. They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer.

Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution
