Hi there and welcome

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Thanks

Connect the powershot to a USB port on the computer with the data cable that came with it.

Then click start, computer

In the new window you will see the camera there

Click it and you can then access your photos and copy them to your computer

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi there

It was not click start on computer, it was click Start, then computer.

So Start is in the bottom left, then you click on computer.

In the new window you will see the camera there

Click it and you can then access your photos and copy them to your computer

Thanks for clarifying

Did you press the Play button first before connecting it to the computer? Like page 25 of the manual here?
