Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera ?

Hello Im on win xp and my pc doesnt detect my camera.


Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 such as Picasa.

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera -- nothing works. Nikon's tech support was not helpful. My PC runs XP, my son's laptop runs Windows 7. The camera worked fine with both then suddenly stopped working. My device manager does not detect the camera at all.

Hi guys! I'm having trouble with my KODAK SDHC Memory Card 4GB. I've recorded some stuff in my camera, and I can see my recordings IN the camera, but whenever I try to transfer my videoclips to my PC, it won't detect the memory card. I've alreday tried connecting the camera directly to the computer, but still won't detect it. Whenever I use another memory card it seems to work perfectly fine. HELP!
