Importing photos from Canon IXUS 40 to computer. It stops on the 9th picture & will not import any more !

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.

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 cataloging program such as Picasa.

PowerShot SD300 Flash Won't Charge


Yes its very possible that something was damaged during the repair. If you scratched a board you can break an electrical connection between two parts.

The thing to try first would be replacing the flash, look for a used one as it will be cheapest. If that doesnt work, then you have to replace the main PCB.

If you need parts, please let me know, its what we do.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Use as mass storage device

Connecting a camera to computer via a USB to download is one thing- Connecting a camera to Computer to feed back the the card is another. The chances are the firmware on the camera will not accept anything that is not in EXIF format. Try it -simply connect camera in the normal way. This will if you have the normal A C D drives will come up us removable storage -'E' with the appropriate icon in 'My computer' Now pick a file[s] and using the normal Edit/ Select/ Copy[Or right click] routine then go to the removable media['E?' right click paste See what you get- you wont break anything

Memory Card is locked up?

Hi Phatback, There should be a switch on the card, move it in the opposite direction. If this does not work, format it in your PC. Please let me know if this works. Best regards, nightdiver
