Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A495 Digital Camera ?

I am unable to download pictures from my new Canon 495. I have a Windows XP



Answers :

If plugging it in doesn't automatically load the pictures to your computer (will depend on if the device is recognized and setup to transfer automatically), you can possibly copy them manually by going to My Computer and selecting your camera and dragging the images to the destination you want.\012\012

If it is not showing up in your computer you can also remove the memory card and put it in the appropriate card reader if you have one.

Lastly you can download the software for your camera from the manufacturer at:
