My Canon Powershot SD 400 won't download photos to my computer. I have a brand new battery. When I connect the camera and turn it on my computer shows the device for a moment and tries to get the data. The camera turns off shortly after it is on (no blinking light). When I unplug the USB it stays on no problem. I also swapped another USB and took out the memory card and battery and put it back in again.

I can't get photos to upload from my Canon S500. Always in the past I just made the USB connection and I got a dialog screen telling me what to do. Now I have a new computer (running Vista, just got my Windows 7 upgrade and haven't loaded it yet), and it gave me a short message about "driver installed and then nothing--no icon, no nothing. It does make a sound when I connect and disconnect the camera. I went to the Canon site and they say there's no special software to download for this.

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.


Your problem stems from the changes Windows makes to the registry every time it downloads updates. Pros avoid this very common problem by using a separate card reader...you should too.\012 ... Digital Cameras

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


I'm not really sure what's going on, but it could also be a hardware problem, or maybe ribbon connector inside the camera from the usb port to the main board, or maybe a bent pin in the usb connector.\015\012Check it out carefully, and remove t ... Olympus EVOLT E-510 Body Only Digital Camera

I can't get the photos in my Pentax OptioS6 to download into my computer. When I try, the computer says that it does not recognize what kind of camera it is connected to. By the way, I checked the trouble shooting guide & thought that the problem may be that the USB connection setting might have been set to PictBridge instead of PC -- but no, it is set correctly. Any ideas? I'd love to download these photos.


If the settings on the camera are correct, try installing the driver from Pentax (fill out the form here: http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/) your computer should recognize it then.If all else fails, you can alwa ... Pentax Optio S6 Digital Camera

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). The battery is fully charged and can not find anything in the manuals provided regarding this failure. cheers, Maura

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!


First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

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!
