Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Cannot trasfer pics from Canon Powershot A540 to computer.

\015 I'm having problems trasferring the pics on my camera to my computer. I've restarted the computer, recharged the camera's batteries and uninstalled and reinstalled the ZoomBrowers program. Usually as soon as I open the program and turn on the camera(on review mode) the display screen on the camera opens and I select the option wanted. But right now, when I select "Aquire and Camera Settings then Aquire images from memory card," I only get the hour glass as if its trying to find the program. Any help would be appreciated.\015\012\015\012Peggy\015

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 ZoomBrowser or Picasa.

Hi, I sure hope you guys can help me out! I am trying to download some pics from my computer onto the 4GB memory card in my Canon Powershot A460, but the camera won't let me.

However it is now telling me that my camera may not support this, is there anything I
