Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera ?

I am experiencing problems uploading pictures from my A1100 IS to my PC. I've had the camera a year now and never had a problem. Not sure whether my 2 year old has puhed a button on it somewhere or indeed if the cable is faulty but the PC doesn't see it straight away any more!!


Answers :

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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Olympus stylus 770 cable has problem transferring photos to computer. This only started month ago. Once connected to computer, camera screens reads 'one moment' but never actually connects to computer. I've tried it on 2 computers but the same problem. Is it the cable thats faulty? If so, is it possible to buy a replacement somewhere?

Hi, my Mustek dig. camera is not displaying anything. Having bought this about a year ago and not really using it, I don't remember if it came with a charger or just the USB cable. Anyway, I plugged in the USB cable and turned on the cam, but nothing popped out on my PC. The power button is still on (blue light) and does not turn off. But I still can not see anything - the cam is dark. Please let me know how I can start using it again. Thank you

"function" button Can anyone tell me what the "function" button does? So far, it activates nothing. I am assuming that it works if hooked to computer via serial/parallel cable.

Broken Camera Well, I dropped my camera, and tada, it is messed up. It turns on, it takes pictures, but the only button that works is the on/off button and the button to take the pictures. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5634183 is the camera, I've had it for 2 years, so the warranty is up.
