It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Hi I recently purchased Canon Powershot Sd1200 IS. I installed the Solution Disc software but when I connect the camera to my computer there is nothing that tells me I have installed new hardware - the computer makes the ringing sound when I turn camera power on and off. Only the user guides show on my computer. Before this camera I had the Canon Powershot SD1000 and was able to download my pictures with no problem. Was told at Future Shop that it might be a problem with my computer. rnEmail

The last couple of times that I hooked the USB cable to the computer to transfer pics, I turn the camera to on as I would normally do, a blue screen flicks quickly with a message I can't read and the screen goes off, (doesn't stay on and give you the percentage of sync completed message). Computer doesn't seem to be finding the camera. No problems with taking pictures. Could it be my USB cable is bad? I've charged batteries but never bou

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture. Every other function works fine (like the menu screens etc.) so it's not a screen problem so it might be a lens problem or something. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong?

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?


Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powe ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Lcd problems When I turn the camera on, the screen is very dark. I have tried all the settings on the camera to make it brighter but that hasn't worked.
