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..

Consider 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. The card reader doesn't care what camera took the pictures, so you can use it with any camera (assuming the card itself fits).
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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Do you wish the software to download the photos from your camera? If so, as a better solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos. Card reader's are very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.
You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. No software is needed. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of trouble. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. Some of the inexpensive ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):: http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1232260593/ref=sr_st?keywords=sd+card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Asd+card+reader&sort=acrelevancerank
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:)
