\015 As soon as I plug in my Canon Powershot A720 to my laptop, the camera freezes and becomes unresponsive. I can't download pictures. It won't scroll through pictures, the menu won't come up. I know it's not the usb cord as the computer reads the camera when I go into my computer. Any help will be very appreciated. Thanks, daniellarousso\015

Daniellarousso,

i know it's not the answer you were looking for but i agree with the poster above. invest in a $10 all in one card reader and then forget about connecting your camera to your computer directly.

benefits of the card reader is they can be used for almost any type of card (memory stick, sd, compact flash, etc) so that any time you have friends or family over and want to download pics from their camera, you can.

i recommend the kingston FCR HS219.

good luck!
Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
