Answers :

This happens when you connect your camero to your PC. Try plugging into another usb port if doesnt work Uninstall the Canon Software on your PC unplug the camera then restart your PC. When the PC is ready then plug in your camera to the PC. Wait until you see the Removable Icon on the System Tray. Now go to My Computer then check if you will be able to access your files. If everything fails try to use a card reader
