Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera ?

Computer will not recognize camera and is not in list to install from



Answers :

You should not need special software to access this camera on your computer. Make sure the cables are plugged in firmly to both the camera and the computer. Be sure to turn the camera on, then try to access the files on the camera like you would the files on a flash drive. \015\012
\015\012Alternatively, if you have a fairly new laptop or desktop computer, you may have a card reader installed that can read the CF memory cards from your camera.\015\012
\015\012If you don't have a card reader installed on your machine, I would recommend getting an inexpensive card reader from a local computer retailer. They sell ones that can read many different kinds of cards, so make sure you get one that can read the type of memory cards that came with your camera. These types of readers are easy to use and are used by most professional photographers, as it is safer to use these than to always be plugging in your camera. \015\012
\015\012You can find them for between $12 - $25 at most computer stores.
