Question about Canon PowerShot A700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera will not connect with my computer

Normally when I turn on my camera and it is connected with the computer via USB it will download my photos, but now nothing is happening when I plug in the camera. Why is the computer not reading the camera is hooked up? How am I supposed to get my photos onto my computer?

    Reinstalling software, restoring camera to defaults, changing USB ports, and replacing the cable did not work. What an inconvenience.

    I have exactly the same problem.

    I have reinstalled software - still nothing.

    USB ports and cable are good.

    Canon A700.

    Windows XP SP2.

    For nearly 3 years, it has worked perfectly.

    Today, when I connected the camera to my computer via USB, and switched the camera on, no software came to life on the computer.

    None of the buttons on the back of the camera functioned.

    I have sent a support request to Canon and will see what happens.

Try to reinstall camera's software to your computer. By the way did you changed your computer OS ? Good luck!

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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

When I switch on to download photos the camera lense slightly comes out and there is also no beep noise that normally follows, it is not letting me download?

Even if the USB cable is connected perfectly to the camera and PC it still is not sure everything in the cable and both connectors is 100%. Or even the drivers in the computer can be corrupted.
Start with another cable, and if possible try to connect another camera to the compeer, to check the computer acts normal to that.
Always try to isolate a problem to one thing.
For the time being, you perhaps could place the memory card in an external card reader connected to the computer, to put the pictures on your computer that way?
