Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera ?

EOS Utility program cant download pictures.

\015 Previously the Eos Utility program provided with the camera worked well (on XP sp2) and downloaded all pictures neatly into folders for the date the pictures were taken.\015\012\015\012Now however, for some unknown reason, this utility doesnt work. The camera is recognised and is listed in device manager as an "Image Capture Device" as Canon Powershot S3 IS. \015\012\015\012If I use the windows native tooling I can pull images off the camera (same with Adobe Photoalbum) - but it doesnt sort them neatly by the date they were taken so its a bit anoying.\015\012\015\012Any ideas what might have changed?\015\012\015\012the canon EOS utility program used to work for me but now does not automatically appear when I connect my Canon PowerShot SX100 camera. Also the camera "freezes" on the last image taken and does not respond when I press the menu button or any other button..... \015

Hi. I have some pictures on my camera memory card which I want to download, but when I connect the camera to my computer, it only displays one picture old picture which should have been deleted long ago and none of the pictures currently on the memory card. I have just run the anti-virus program when I connected the camera, but no threats were detected, although I previously downloaded pictures on the same computers which did indicate a threat or virus at the time.


Instead of connecting the camera to the computer, use a card reader to directly transfer the pictures from your camera's memory card. It is easier and the card reader is a cheap device. It will work just like a USB flash device. ... Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera
