Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera ?

When I plug in my camera to download pictures, nothing happens. What do I do?


Answers :

Is the camera on? Are the batteries full? Go to Start/My Computer and check to see if your camera memory card appeas as D: or E: If so click on all folders inside folders until you see the one with your photos. Copy the enclosing folder and paste it in your computer.

Another way is to use a card reader for the Compact Flash type card your camera uses. And follow the above steps.

If the problem is with the software, try using picasa to import the photos.
