Won't down load pics?

I have a Cannon Powershot A580 camera. I can't get it too down load my pics. There is suposed to be a little blue light come on to tell you when it will down load,but it won't come on??? I follow the book and hook it all up as directed and nothing!
Is there or can i get something to plug into my computer to take pics right off of the card?
The batteries are new. I don't know if anyone may have dropped my camera? Would it be worth sending it to Cannon to have it fixed or just buy a new one?

Go to any place that sells card readers and see if one will work for you. They will be a lot cheaper than sending the camera to Canon for repairs.
I use one all the time for my cards.

Did you turn the power on after you plugged it in to the computer?

Have you downloaded pics from this camera before? Did it come with a disk? Sounds like there might be a driver missing.

I use a Sony Mod# MRW62E which has four different sized slots and have not ran across a card it will not read.
