Copy large movie from digital camera (Canon) to PC

Copy large movie from digital camera (Canon) to PC

I have a Canon Digital Ixus 990IS. The PC (running Windows XP SP2) sees the camera fine. I can copy images and movies.

"I believe the Canon Ixus 990IS defaults to PTP mode (At least my Ixus 970IS seems to). There doesn't appear to be a way to change this either.

It may be worth using a card reader to transfer the files, if you have access to one.

You might also find a more informed answer on one of the sister sites dedicated to photography, such as photography.angle"

"Two suggestions:

Are you connecting to USB via hub or monitor? Try plugging in directly.
Do you have a USB card reader? That will mount your card as a drive in Explorer."

"Try using an external transfer agent.

For instance: Richcopy"

"You can try FileSaver. Advantage of this program is that it copies data in stages. Each stage will only copy parts that haven't succeeded in previous one.

Most of file copiers will copy same file each time from start, they will stop at same place each time.

P.S. Since KB article states that there is hot-fix available, you can just call Microsoft support, give them KB article number, and they will give you hot-fix. This would probably be least painful solution."

"You could try using Teracopy: Teracopy

TeraCopy is designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible
speed. It skips bad files during the copying process, and then
displays them at the end of the transfer so that you can see which
ones need attention. TeraCopy can automatically check the copied files
for errors by calculating their CRC checksum values. It also provides
a lot more information about the files being copied than its Windows
counterpart. TeraCopy integrates with Windows Explorer's right-click
menu and can be set as the default copy handler."
