Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

I'm trying to upload photos from my camara to the computer.

\015 I'm using a usb cord. But nothing seems to be happening. Does the computer have to have a certain program to for this to take place?\015

Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I was taking pictures for my photography class and after 3-4 pictures in, the camera froze. I turned it off and on and it did it again.

I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 camera. I've had it for years and had no problems with it until recently. Now I am unable to upload photos to the computer.

Could be that the camera and/or the memory card are over the hill, but I'm still hoping that I can get our vacation photos from it
