Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera ?

Sometimes when I go to download my photos to my computer from my SD790 IS Elph Canon Camera, they download fine. Other times they do not download and I spend hours trying to get them to the computer. What is going on that the EOS loader is not responding everytime?


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB). The next time I went to use the camera, the USB storage screen shows up and I can't get it to go back to the original setting to take photos. I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset

A friend purchased a JVC HDD camcorder from ebay, supposedly unused and unwanted gift. Everytime she turns it on it asks for the disc to be formatted. When she does it comes up HDD error. I downloaded a manual, followed the troubleshooter and it is no different. She is going to visit her family in Germany at the end of the week and actually bought the camcorder for the journey. should I tell her to get her money back or is it possible to get it repaired at such short notice. Regards Ian Well


Hi,Due to the time constraint, your best bet would be to return the unit and purchase a replacement while doing so.Formatting error indicates a hardware problem, most like the hard disk is requiring replacement. Shock, jarring ... JVC Digital Cameras

Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image? I dont understand why it shows up on the camera, but I cant transfer it off the card. Help!


Are you sure its an actual photo? If it has an icon on it, it probably is a standard file that is part of the memory stick software. Should be a very small file. ... Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera
