Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.

\015 Canon G9 -- I can't get either my laptop (MacBook) or a photo processor at Walmart to recognize photos on the SD disk I've been using with my Canon G9, although I can view the photos on the camera itself. I know they're on the disk and not internal memory because when I remove the disk from the G9 it says there are no photos -- in fact, I don't believe the G9 has an internal memory.\015\012\015\012I'm wondering if I inadvertently changed some setting to make the camera save the photos in a format that the photo processor and my Mac can't read, because I've never had this problem before.\015\012\015\012I've tried using a different disk but have the same problem, so I know it isn't a problem with the SD. I also tried reformatting the disk using the camera's reformatting control -- it didn't solve the problem.\015

Answers :

You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.
If you can get a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 (around £15 from Amazon/Ebay) it will recognise your G9.
\015\012If you click File - Import.. Canon G9 will be listed and you can open all your photos.

\015\012For RAW files taken on the G9 - get a program called Adobe Digital Negative Converter (free). You will then be able to open the files in most programs that support RAW files, including Photoshop Elements 5.
