Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera ?

I connected the machine to the computer but it doesn´t appears anything. How do I transfer the pictures to my computer? I´ve done this several times and it worked before

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 any photo cataloging program.

I have had a Nikon CoolPix L110 for 10 months. I've never encountered a problem transferring pictures from my camera to my computer during this time...until now.

The pictures being taken are no longer showing up on the computer with the Eye Fi. It worked just fine for while but out of no where, the pictures we are taking are just on the camera and not transfering to the computer.

Hi,\015\012\015\012I think the fastest and easiest way at this point would be to remove the Eye Fi card from the camera and just place it in the card reader that came with it and connect that to your computer. Then just drag and drop the photo ... Digital Cameras
