Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S50 Digital Camera ?

Connecting to my computer

\015 My s50 Canon powershot camera will not connect to my pc. It flashes away but the software (adobe photo download) and any other route i.e. clicking on the device from my computer etc will not link up. It identifies the camera properly (even thou no software has ever been installed on this pc) but always says that the device is busy or not available. It seems really random, sometimes it works with lots and lots of attempts to connect and other times it doesn't. Am I doing something wrong?\015\012\015

Answers :

Hi sir..
\015\012 please switchit off.. and take the battery out.. and again insert and try it..

I connect my Samsung P1200 to my computer and the camera says 'Select USB' and I select 'computer'. It then says 'Connecting Computer'. This is where it gets stuck and does nothing else, doesn't connect to the computer or anything. Any ideas how I can fix this so it will connect?

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable.
