Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera ?
My MacBook isn't detecting my PowerShot SD1000---even though it has in the past.
I think Apple's short-sighted, opportunistic and evil engineers should think about designing a MacBook Air with a card reader. Enough of them exploiting people. No ethernet sockets, no ROMs, no card slots, enough of them!
Use a card reader instead of the camera from now on.

Hi, I have a Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. It says the memory card is locked every time I insert it even though it isn't. I tried several cards to eliminate the possibility the card was bad. I received a repair estimate at $79, because the card reading board needs to be replaced. Am I being scammed or is it a fair estimate? Is it worth it or is it better to invest in a new camera? This one is not even 2 years old...

Canon powershot sd 890 will not load photos after installing Norton 360 from comcast. Comcast says that Norton can NOT cause a problem with camera photo loads even though I see that other people have the same problem. I get a ding ding sound, no pop up for me to select photo load option. I even went to explorer and tried to manual connect camera that way and no luck. UGH!!!

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

CAnon Powershot SX 100 IS will not turn on after replacing batteries. Tried lots of batteries so it's not that. I did notice the past few months the red flashing icon that indicates low battery kept coming on even shortly after replacing batteries.

I have a new Canon Powershot SD780IS. I took a movie with it, in multiple parts. The smaller segments will download from the camera to my PC very nicely, but the biggest (and most important) piece will not download, even though I can see it play in the camera. What to do???
Instead of downloading from the camera, try using a card reader to download it. The use of an inexpensive card reader is a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.
Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

My HP Pavilion 9000t cannot seem to detect my Canon ZR830 camcorder. Even though the Canon shows "DV IN" when I connect the firewire, after using system restor to roll back prior to Windows update, and after updating the IEEE driver in device manager, the computer can't find it. Annoyingly enough, I was previously able to "see" this camcorder on my computer. No help on the Canon site, and no help on the HP site either.
