Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I plugged my camera into a different computer. now it won't talk to my original computer. How can i reset it? i already uninstalled and reinstalled software.

Answers :

Don't think it's the software on the computer it's the memory card in the camera. If you deleted or opened any pictures on the other computer and put the card back into your camera or didn't eject the "drive" you corrupted your memory card. Your fix may be as simple as formatting your memory card

Does Canon have a problem with their software? When I try to download photos the camera is recognized by the software but then the window does not provide software available to download, even though I have downloaded tons of photos prior to this problem.

The tech cleaned up some other issues, but is at a loss to figure out why the software will not download photos. We have spent litteraly hours on this

Previous to this occasion, the computer has been fine in recognising the camera software on "my computer". However, since having the computer wiped of a virus, it has not been possible for the computer to detect my camera when I hook it up with the USB link. The only recognition is a weird noise that sounds, different to the one I used to hear. I cannot understand what to do as the camera itself is working absolutely fine. Do I need to uninstall and then reinstall the programme?
