Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera ?
Camera can't upload pictures
\015 I have the Canon sd500 and every time the uploader usb cable gets removed from the computer, I have difficulties getting pictures to upload when I plug the cable back in. I'm using windows XP. The camera symbol shows up on the bottom right, but it doesn't have the little blue light over the top of it like it does when it's about to bring up the screen that starts the upload process. Also, when it's normally working, as soon as I turn the camera on (in play mode), the screen will go blank so the list of uploading options can appear on the screen. Now the screen doesn't go blank--it just freezes on the picture. \015\012How do I get it to fully recognize the camera? Thanks for any assistance.\015
You can reinstall the software. But a really good solution is a card reader. They are cheap and reliable and don't need any software. When you plug it in, it will install itself, and then when you put your car in the reader its like an extra little hard drive in your computer. Just drage the files or folders where you want them on your computer. Less wear and tear on the camera is always good and then you don't need to plug in power or waste batteries if you don't have a dock.
