My guess is a canon mini 5 pin usb cable. Should be able to get it at any electronics outlet for about $8.00. If he is using firewire, it is a different cable, but about the same price. Tell him to make sure the battery is good, hook it up, turn it on,go to my computer>devices with removable storage and he should be able to open it from there if it does not open when turned on. There are also some freeware digital camera programs to download at WWW.snapfiles.com, click "freeware" and search digital camera.Let us know if this solves your problem.
