Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera ?

HELP ME ASAP! camera problems uploding pictures

\015 I'm having trouble uploading pictures. When I connect the camera to the computer with the USB cord, nothing happens!\015

Answers :

I never use the computer hook-up programs/equipment that
\015\012come with a camera.
\015\012What you should try is a Card Reader Thumb Drive.
\015\012I recently bought one for SD cards at Office Max for about $12.
\015\012All you do is remove the card from your camera, insert it in the
\015\012thumb drive, plug the drive into a USB port, and take it from there.
\015\012A window will open up on your computer showing a folder named something like "DCIM". Just double-click on this folder
\015\012and you'll see a list of the pictures on the card.
\015\012Good luck!

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

We continue to have problems once a picture is taken we get file errors or the picture is half merged with another picture. Also, the picture looks fine in the camera, but when we download to the computer it is merged with another picture that was not even loaded on the camera at the same time. We thought we might need to be more agressive in pusing down the shutter button, but this problem is really puzzeling us and causing aggravation. Can you help?

I have a Panasonic DMC-FX12 digital camera. Before I left on vacation, I took all the pictures OFF of the camera and recharged the battery. I took only 4 pictures before the error message "Built in Memory Card Full" came on the screen and refused to allow me to take any more pictures. HELP! A secondary problem I am having with the same camera is that I have to turn the ON/OFF switch on and off several times before the lens finally comes out.
