Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Cannon s3is Camera and pc will not communicate via camerawindow software was ok before



Answers :

Since it worked before, I'm assuming something has changed with either your software or your camera.
Are you using the same cable? Did you download any updates, or drivers for the camera? Have you upgraded to Windows Vista?
If the answer to any of these is no, then it is very possible that the camera port has gone bad.

My DSC-T700 seems to have lost its internal software (this may not be the problem, but as a novice, this is best I can describe the status of my camera). The camera only shows an image when the slider is opened. But can't do anything with the camera. The menu system has vanished completely. The buttons as well as the zoom does not work.
