Having problems with your Canon IXUS 80 IS Digital Camera ?

When I connect my camera to my PC, the software for transferring pictures from camera to computer used to open up immediately. However, now it doesn't. In fact, the computer doesn't give any sign of recognizing the camera, despite the camera being connected to the computer's USB port with the power on.

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.

Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer.
