Question about Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Laptop doesn't acknowledge canon a460 camera when connected

Hi,

My laptop, (a dell inspiron 1300), could recognize my camera when I first connected it, but since I've installed the software it doesn't acknowledge when it's been connected. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try 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.

If still not working from camera to computer, then take out the camera's card and insert into a Card Reader.

From the Card Reader, connect that lead to USB of computer. This will open up, if you know which driver is the Card Reader. Once known, just double clicks and the computer will do the rest. Then save then in Drive C or give it a name to a New Folder.

Most of the issues can be solved by either reinstalling the software or by disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
In this case we can close in on three solutions
1) The USB drive in the system is not functioning. Try connecting any other USB devices to the same USB port and check whether it works or not. If the other device works well then it could be a problem with the data cable or with the port in the camera (usually firewire)

2) The data cable used to transfer data might have become faulty.Try using another data cable if possible and still the same issue continues then try connecting another camera to the system and if the other camera gets detected then the problem must be with the camera.

3) Try connecting the same camera to another system and see whether the camera gets detected. If no, then the port in the camera is defective.

After this we can close in on which could be faulty. data cable / Computer / Camera.

If you go here it says that for XP it does not have a driver, it also does not have one for Vista.

It does, however, have drivers for Win 98, so I am assuming that this is an older product and may not be supported by XP. But if you poke around in here you may be able to find a solution, not knowing the age of both products, or the purchase date, thats the best I can recommend.

Hope this helps!!

Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

Hello,

the problem might be from the screen or from the screen inverter.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and try again.

If there is a display, then its obvious that the problem is from screen or screen inverter of your laptop.

Good luck.

Have you tried accessing the bios and resetting it to factory default settings? Sometimes this will get the laptop to recognize the hdd. Otherwise, it may be either the connection isn't secure, or the bios has become corrupt and you may need to update (flash) the bios

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop that I'm trying to connect wirelessly. It's not recognizing our home wireless network but my husband's laptop does. What can I do?


Hi,

First of all make sure that your antivirus software firewall is not blocking it.
I suggest you uninstall all the antivirus softwares your pc has completely first and then restart your pc and see if your laptop recognizes the wireless internet.

let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.
