Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

File Transfer Error

\015 I am able to see all pics and play all movies from the camera. I am able to transfer all pics, and some movies. Not sure why all movies do not transfer. I have a 2GB memory card and recorded until it was full. Trying to figure out if there is another way to transfer those files?\015

Answers :


I recommend using a card reader available nearly everywhere.

Plug it into the PCs USB port. then it should show up as a drive. transfer the files and you're done. Don't forget to 'safely remove' the drive before unplugging it.

I've lost all my photo's by pressing the 'transfer mode' button. I've run it through some file recovery software which says thay are within the camera but not on the sd card. The pictures are visible with the recovery software. However, that's as far as the software can go. When I attempt to transfer the found files to my computer it comes up with an error message.

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?

I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying to flick through pictures it flashes and eventually says file error. the computer will pick up the photos initially then won't transfer them. my printer has a memory card slot and even that won't recognise the card anymore!

The problem could be that the computer will not read the large card, I know my two year old Acer will not read the 8 gig cards directly from a card reader. The solution may be to revert back to smaller cards. ... Sakar 23070 Digital Camera

I have a Canon HG10 Video Camcorder, however I can't figure out how to transfer the actual video files to the computer to be edited by programs. It is a hard drive camcorder meaning that all the information is on a onboard hard drive on the camcorder itself, the manual tells you how to transfer pictures and how to "back up video files to the computer" but the files are not viewable on the computer and must be "transfered back" to the camcorder to be watched... help.

For editing software Avid Studio, Corel VideoStudio Pro X5, Sony Vegas, etc... all handle AVCHD format video (the .MTS video files from the HG10).Later versions of Windows Media Player now will play this format. Many other players are also a ... Digital Cameras
