Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera ?

Communication error when uploading pictures on computer

\015 Okay, so when I tried to upload pictures from my camera to the computer it said "communication error" on the screen. Couple of days ago, my sister had used a different USB cordaccidentally(have no clue how she pulled that off!) to upload pictures. And, so when it wasn't working with the canon USB cord tried the one she used, which is a sony USB cord. That didn't work either! Heeeelp please. Is there a way to reset the camera or something?\015

Answers :

I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.

Can't upload pics from easyshare m340 to easyshare software. Camera is 3 months old. I have downloaded pictures once before but for some reason I can't seem to get it to work this time. I hear a sound when I plug in the camera to the computer, but nothing happens. I don't see an error message anywhere. I've only uploaded pictures one time before and I seem to remember it starting on its own once it was plugged in.
