Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Pictures not loading to computer

After two years of using this camera, all of a sudden my pictures are not loading to computer. What have I done to my camera to cause this?. What do I do to correct this problem?

Message: Unreadable - "The following files could not be imported. They may be an unrecognized file type or the files may not contain valid data."

Note: Most of these pictures I already had loaded on the computer and when I take new pictures, I just always say when it asks not to duplicate files. Now however, it does not recognize even the old pictures as well as the new pictures I have just taken.

Create a new picture folder in the computer
then do the following
1. Format the card in the Camera
if no go
2.purchase another card
if that is no go
3 Replace the camera
If you have access to another card[ A friend or a shop] try it in the camera to establish card fault or camera fault.
At 2 years old a repair would be a viable proposition

File down load issues


How are you trying to download your pictures?
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I am trying to download photos to my pc. All plugged in the the Device Connected box ins blank. Any ideas - its driving me nuts!


OK, when I use my Kodak Easy share cameras on a fresh computer that hasn't downloaded Kodak pictures before I do the following:

Load Easyshare software onto the machine, and install it.

Then, I connect the camera to the computer.

Then, I open the Easyshare software and it may ask a few questions.

Next, I watch the computer (Windows 7) as it loads the proper driver for my camera.

Finally, I click on transfer pictures and I am set with my pictures.

The pictures should show up in the Start Menu's picture under Kodak Pictures.

You should be done.

Let me know how it works out with the Easyshare software downloaded to the computer before trying to load pictures on to the computer.

Can not get pictures from camera to a computer folder


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Camera dead after downloading pics


Use a card reader to download the pictures instead. I never figured out how to use the cable that attaches the camera to the computer. I've been doing this for 4 years and haven't had a problem!
