Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera ?

I cannot connect my ixus 65 to my computer with one memory card (that is not locked) : I got the message "connection error". Other cards can still connect properly to the same computer.


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.
