Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

When I plug in my camera to the computer, instead of getting the two toned alert that indicates that the computer has recognized that new hardware has been attached to the computer, it makes a three tone alert. When I go to "my computer" the camera doesn't show up. But if I turn the camera off, the computer makes the two tone alert indicating that it recognizes that the hardware is uninstalled. What does this mean? I have been able to plug my camera in with no problems for the last four years s


Answers :

If your goal is to get your pictures, try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

When I turn the camera on, it buzzes four or five times (a sound I have never heard it make before) then displays "Please turn the camera off and then on again". When I turn it off, it buzzes again two or three times, the screen goes blank, but the lens does not retract. The battery is charged, and the problem is the same whether in picture or display mode, whether plugged into the computer or not.
