WILL THE REBEL 300D DOWN LOAD VIA IT'S USB CABLE TO MY COMPUTER WITH VISTA AS MY OS? I CAN ONLY USE AN EXTERNAL USB CARD READER TO GET MY PICTURES. CANNON'S SITE DOES NOT OFFER DRIVERS FOR VISTA 32 OR 64 BIT. SOME SITES CLAIM TO UPDATE ALL DRIVERS, BUT FOR A FEE. MY COMPUTER RECOGNIZES THE CAMERA AS NEW HARDWARE BUT EVEN WITH THE DISK WITH TWAIN AND WIA DRIVERS 5.2.1 IT TELLS ME THERE ARE NO DRIVERS ON THE DISK. THANKS, MICHAEL

I have a canon powershot sx200 IS and I recently went on vacation and took a lot of pictures using teh SD memory card provided with the camera. For some reason, after almost filling the card I received a memory card locked error. I checked the card, it was not locked. I even tried in another camera and same error. So I got a new SD card, took more photos and then all of those photos were erased. I could not find them when reviewing on the camera, another camera, or even with a USB card reader. A


The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've reco ... Canon PowerShot SX 200 IS Digital Camera

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.

We use our camera for passports, so having the pictures stay in the camera, then hook to camera up to the passport photo printer, is the easiest way to go.

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.

Card error I've just gotten back from a trip. When I turned my camera on, a Card Setup screen appears and my two choices are Power Off or Format.

It is possible. Go in where you can see your pictures and then press menu. Go down to copy and press right arrow. Highlight internal to memory card and press set. Should copy them onto your memory card for ya. :) ... Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z60 Digital Camera
