Trouble downloading digital photos from a card reader on the Canon Pixma MP600
Was downloading digital photos from a card reader on the Canon Pixma MP600, with the Adope photoshop reader window open and the screen froze just after completing the down load. I was able to open other programs but couldn't close that one. Tried everything to close the program and finally had to use go back to revert the drive and free the screen. Also when I finally was able to negotiate the files I was unable to delete any of the undesirable photos/files, as they were "protected. Please advise.

Re: trouble downloading digital photos from a card reader...
Ok..well what ya need to do is remember if it ever happens again.. simply open up Task Manager and select the errant program and "End Task" this will shut down most errant programs... now for the files that cannot be deleted... one could change the protected file "Attributes" R,A,S,H. However a much easier soloution is to use a program that will delete anything. Try downloading and using this program from this link ---->
Another great one is Zap.exe for "DOS" use..

I have a mp470. To scan I click start, programs, Canon utilities, MP navigator, MP navigator extention and a screen opens where I can choose scan/import from the platen or memory card. Click on "photos/documents (platen)" and follow the on screen instructions. The path should be the same for your MP600. You can then save as a file and attach the file to your outgoing email. Good luck.

First of all....use a usb card reader...rather than downloading directly from the camera. I believe you use a cf card in your canon. Using the reader simply insert the card into the reader.....and download it to whatever file (and location on your pc) name you want. then bring up the image in whatever photo editing software you use. I use photoshop....but you necessarily need that program. many people use photoshop le, etc. hope that helps.
You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot
When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.
I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.
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 found out that Windows Vista (this is what came with my HP laptop) is not compatible with my printer. So, I went to the Canon website and downloaded a driver, and my photos are very clear and of normal color:)
Thanks for checking and your response time was pretty quick.
