Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

For some reason I can not get my pictures to transfer to my computer from my Canon A560 camera. It has worked in the past. Any suggestions? Mary


Answers :

I have the A570, which is fairly similar, and I use one of two methods for transferring pics from the camera to the computer. One is to use a USB cable between computer and camera, and the other requires removing my micro SD card and plugging it into a card reader. ( I purchased micro SD cards with SD adapters so I can use the second method.) Using the second method allows you to view the data just like you would any other data on your hard drive. If you don't have a card reader, maybe a friend does? At this time, I don't know if there is a problem with the camera/computer connection, or the data card. Re-post with more detail regarding what you do to transfer, and whether you get any error messages, if this doesn't help.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally.
