Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera ?

"cannot detect camera"

\015 Hey there, I'm trying to download images to my pc and this time when I try the CameraWindow won't appear. I went to All Programs to start it up, but says "Cannot Detect Camera". I then uninstalled the software and have re-installed it and still it won't detect. The camera is new as of last summer and nothing has happened to the USB cord. \015\012Can you help?\015\012Thanks,\015\012Mary-Anne\015

Answers :

Have you tried installing the software and then rebooting the computer. Quite often that's all that's required for the computer to recognize the camera.
I just experienced this problem and went round in circles for a few hours before stumbling on the solution. My camera, a Sony Cybershot, has 4 USB Connect modes in the Setup menu: PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, and Auto. The only mode that would work to bring up the Camera Wizard screen on an XP computer was PTP. Once I changed the setting from Auto to PTP, the camera was recognized and able to connect to the computer. Somehow this setting had got changed to Auto or Mass Storage and that evidently causes a problem such that XP does not recognize the camera.

Previous to this occasion, the computer has been fine in recognising the camera software on "my computer". However, since having the computer wiped of a virus, it has not been possible for the computer to detect my camera when I hook it up with the USB link. The only recognition is a weird noise that sounds, different to the one I used to hear. I cannot understand what to do as the camera itself is working absolutely fine. Do I need to uninstall and then reinstall the programme?
