Sd600 digital camera trouble downloading pics to computer

I have a new sd600 camera and I have consistently had trouble downloading images to my DELL PC laptop (I have windows xp). There seems to be a problem with detecting the connecting to the computer through the usb port but I knwo that I didn't need to download any usb drivers since I have windows xp. I was only able to download pics one time and that was after I continuously tried opening the camera window and unplugging and replugging the usb cable into the computer. Now I can't download pictures at all, and for some reason every time I plug the camera into the computer with the cable, adobe photoshop opens up instead of the camera window and it can't detect the camera. I have tried opening the camera window manually and it either doesn't open or it gives me a message saying the device is not connecting. I have tried everything from uninstalling to reinstalling the software and it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

    I'm having the exact same problem. I've never had any problems until maybe a month ago. I've always been able to get my pix through ZoomBrowser.

Hmmm... Yea sometimes the pc doesn't see the added gizmo your camera. In which case, I suggest when you connect camera to computer click on "my computer" and you should see your device listed there along with your C drive & so on. Click on the camera icon & viola, you can copy the images from there to your computer. Yea I had the same experience with PS too, well Elements in particular. And there is a setting (somewhere in Elements Browser window) to turn it off. Yea to simply download images - it doesn't require any software at all with XP. I use a card reader & rarely deal with using the camera cable to computer hook up. To use that device you'll remove the card from the camera & stick in the reader & its ALWAYS worked for me. Again you'll have to click on "my computer" to find the images there. Otherwise --- next step would be to try another usb cable.

Windows XP wont dowload ALL images from my Canon EOS 400D


Your canon must be making multiple folders on the card and the computer is only reading the first one. Use a card reader to download your pictures.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? 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:

I need to download pictures from Canon SD600 and lost printer cd


Connect the Camera to PC using the supplied USB cable, for windows XP and later versions the pc will identify the camera device and pop-up a window asking for "what to do next?"
Select copy pictures from camera from the displayed list.

try using and SD card reader instead of the software that came with it. then you know if it is a software issue or a problem with how your camera saves the photos.
It's also quicker using an SD card reader and drag/drop - copy/paste etc.
