Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD780 IS / IXUS 100 IS Digital Camera ?

No connection recognition

\015 When trying to put pictures from my ixus to the computer, I've installed everything in the way the manual has told me to using the solution disk, but when I connect the camera to the computer with the USB cable, the connection is not recognised so I can't get onto Canon CameraWindow. I have tried with all other programs shut down but it makes no difference. Any ideas?\015

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.

I have a canon power shot SD600 (around 3 years old now). When I go to download my photos on the computer it tells me (the computer) that it 'can not detect a camera connection' and to check the connection. The connection is definitely in properly but the connection button on the camera does not light up in blue (as it usually does).
