Cannot download unidentified images - Canon Digital Cameras


Answers :

Try copying the pictures yourself by hand. connect the camera to the computer, then open my computer or computer which you will find from either the desktop or from start menu, then you will need to find the camera from my computer, it will be listed most likely as a removeable storage device or it might have the cameras name on it, double click to open the camera, you may see a few folders, open the folders and eventually you will find the pictures and you can copy them to your computer. Another way would be to use a memory card reader, connect the memory card to the threader and then the reader to the computer usb port. It will show up as a removeable storage device in your my computer similar to how the camera would show up, inside you may again find a folder or two and within there you will find the pictures / images and you can copy them all to the compter.
