Before You Connect the Camera to the Computer
Precautions for Connecting the Camera to the Computer
•The connection may not operate correctly if you attach the camera to the computer with an interface cable via a USB hub.
•The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices, excluding USB mice or keyboards, at the same time as the camera. If this occurs, disconnect the other devices from the computer and try reconnecting the camera.
•Do not connect two or more cameras at the same time to the same computer. The connections may not operate correctly.
•Never allow the computer to go into standby (sleep) mode while a camera is connected via the USB interface cable. If it does happen, never disconnect the interface cable. Try to awaken the computer with the camera in the connected state. Some computers will not awaken properly if you disconnect the camera while they are in standby (sleep) mode. Please refer to your computer manual for instructions regarding the standby (sleep) mode.
Ensure that you have installed the software from the supplied Canon Digital
Camera Solution Disk before you connect the camera to the computer.
• You are recommended to power the camera from a household power source
(AC adapter) when connecting to a computer. Ensure that you use fully charged batteries if you will not be using a household power source.
•See the Camera User Guide for procedures connecting the camera to the computer.11
