Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A40 Digital Camera ?

I cannot down load pictures to my pc where i get software for download.


Answers :

Ahh the A40, one of my all-time favorite cameras from Canon (it's hard to take a bad picture with that camera when it's placed in "Auto"). But I digress.

\015\012Your question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place?
\015\012Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

\015\012Make sure that you find a card reader that is stated capable of reading CF cards. Many of the "all-in-one" readers can do that.

I have a fairly new Canon Power Shot SD 1200 IS Digital Elph. I cannot find the manual, software or the cord to download them to my computer. Is is possible to download a manual and buy a new cord and software? I think it accidently was thrown away with the box. I can't download the 8 G card on my media reader either, so at this time I can't get my pictures loaded online. What can I do? Diane
