Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

I can't upload my photos. My camera isn't being recognized at all. I'm using Windows Vista ... does this make a difference?


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Why won't my camera let me upload my photos anymore? I've tried using a different cord, turning the camera on and off, and using a different program to upload them through. When I plug it in and turn it on normally it brings up a menu asking me how I want to upload them. Just the other day I went to plug it in and it didn't do anything. The computer recognizes it's there but it won't bring up the menu.

I have a Samsung PL100 (Dualview). I'm having trouble uploading my photos to my computer using the USB. I have installed the CD that came with the camera (InteliStudio) and when I connect the camera and computer with the USB cord, the red indicator light lights up. However, nothing else happens.

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black.
