Default Using Canon PowerShot G10 on Networked PC

Our pathology lab recently purchased a Canon PowerShot G10 to use to capture images of gross specimens to include in the patient's record. After I installed the software that came with the camera on one of our workstations and tried to use the Remote Capture feature, I got an error message "There is no free space in the target folder. Please retry after changing target folders". The Save Folder is on the local drive with over 40GB of free disk space. The Canon tech folks tell me the Remote Capture feature does not work on a computer attached to a network. Has anyone seen this problem before and figured out a "work around". I'm desperately seeking a resolution. Thanks for any help you can offer. Stacey W. Gamble

Use a laptop that is not connected to the network and that should work for you

Our Pathology application -IMPAC's PowerPath that contains the patient's records runs over the network. So that it is not really an option. But thanks for responding. Got any other ideas? SWGamble

You may want to try a third party product like PSRemote and see if it works with your network OK. You can download a trial version to test it:

A couple things come to mind. Is the camera trying to save to the camera drive/card instead of the PC hard drive? If you’re sure the settings are pointing to saving to the correct location. Then Inphoto software has a twain driver you should be able to make use of. Most important is what version of PowerPath are you using? PowerPath ver. 8.3 and above has an excellent imaging module which allows you to save images straight to the case.
