I have a Canon SD750 and i am trying to download photos into my IPhoto on my Mac through a USB cord. I've had success in the past using this camera with my Mac but now it won't work. Please advise. Communication Error comes up on the Camera's viewfinder.

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print


Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

My new Canon G11, purchased in August,2010: 1) The camera cord (to load photos from camera to computer) is no longer interfacing, but the card works (I don't think it is the software as it malunctions on both office PC and home Macpro). Also noticed that sometimes when trying the cord, when I turn camere on, the lens comes out, which never happend when transferring photos via cord 2) I noticed shortly thereafter that the camer no longer "beeps" when the green in-focus boxes appear on hte view


It sounds to me like one or more of the wires in the cord has broken, or there is a problem with the USB port on the computer. Try swapping to the other ports to see if the problem goes away before going forward.If the problem is present ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

Didnt realise I furst had to format the memory card for my new Nikon D60. Took lots of photos at the weekend but when I took out the card to download the images there was nothing on it.

Polaroid digital camera i832 was working fine through USB cable. Received an Ipod shuffle for Mother's day, downloaded the software, loaded my Ipod and now my camera doesn't work. I'm think it's the Itunes software, because that's the only new thing that's been downloaded and the camera worked previously to that. The removable disk drive (F:) recognizes it, but wants me to "format disk". Under the device manager, disk drivers, there is a Maxtor 6Y080L0 listed and my camera. I don't think the Max

I can't get photos to upload from my Canon S500. Always in the past I just made the USB connection and I got a dialog screen telling me what to do. Now I have a new computer (running Vista, just got my Windows 7 upgrade and haven't loaded it yet), and it gave me a short message about "driver installed and then nothing--no icon, no nothing.
