Canon PowerShot A520 - trouble transferring pix from cam to cpu

\015 My canon powershot a520 used to automatically upload pictures to my computer when plugged in w/a usb, and now it won't. the last time this happened i learned that when the batteries are low it won't upload and changing the batteries worked. this time it won't work, even with new batteries. the computer is saying "cannot detect camera. check connection to camera, then retry." i don't know what else i can do. i restarted, changed batteries, plugged and unplugged...please help!\015

Answers :

If TuedayBabe's solution doesn't work you might like to try this: Used my "Windows Update" application and ran it-Camera was "plugged in" with my USB cable while I ran the update ( camera was off ). Must have been related to the driver for my Canon. Whatever it was-it fixed it. I had the exact same probs as above- and it WAS a driver problem-tried to go to the Canon site and download the latest-no joy-but this definitely worked for me!
Hi, I know the solution!!
You have to reformatt the memory card.
You go into the orange - tools (set up).
Look for FORMAT.
PRESS SET
Then it says FORMAT MEMORY CARD?
CLICK OK.

Warning!!! : Any pictures that you do have WILL NOT BE SAVE OR RECOVERED. But you're camera will download images after you have formatted the memory card. It's a corruption that has happened through the memory card.

I HOPE THIS HELPS. I got my CAMERA BACK YAY!!

I didn't get a manual with this Canon PS S200 camera from eBay, but had used my sister's S200 camera, etc., and was familiar with this model.
