Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Hi I recently purchased Canon Powershot Sd1200 IS.

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
