Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A40 Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon A40 digital camera. Tonight is the first time since buying my new computer with a Windows 7 operating system on it when I attempted to download picture. Can anyone help me get these pics downloaded? Thanks in advance.


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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.
