Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Pics not transferring to the computer

I've had the powershot for a year and a half and never had problems downloading images until now. I keep getting the message that the computer doesn't detect camera. I have the USB port built into my computer (Dell Dimension 9100), the connecting cord appears to be o.k. Up until a couple of weeks ago this all worked great. Typically, all I have to do is connect the computer to the camera, put the camera in play mode and the screen comes on to start downloading, but now I'm not getting that screen. Any suggestions?

If you have camera software installed - take it out. Now try If the Camera/Card are functioning Windows Scanner/camera wizard should sort it. If that fails take the card out and try to get the use of a card reader or another computer or processing station - you have to prove Camera/Card/Computer which is not doing the business

1. Forget about getting the computer to recognize the camera. Do what the pros do...use a card reader instead of the camera and download to a folder you create on the desktop. 2. Sorry, but "format" completely erases the card with no hope of retrieval. typrice_192.jpg

I had the same problem with my machine, there is nothing you personally can do to fix it. You'll have to find a service tech who can work on it to solve the problem.
