I spent a lot of time and effort researching the internet trying to find the software and driver for my daughters Canon PowerShot A20 camera! I AM NOT an expert on the computer, but I am also not a novice! I did not appreciate being put on hold for an extended length of time while AvioriX was trying to interface me with evidenly a number of other people who also had problems. YES, I solved the problem myself, and I no longer need help!

Canon Powershot A20: One Compact flash card works fine and I'm able to download the pictures. The other card (which was used in a Canon A40) is not recognised by the computer, although you can review the...

about the cards their models must be not same that's why you don't get the soft copy of other pics on your computer ..or

For those of you with a Canon camera of the above models; there is a firmware release that will make the autofocus work a bit better.
Here are the links (a40,a30,a20,a10)

It mainly fixes the soft-focus problem with the second to last telephoto setting:
In case you haven't seen this problem, take an A40 and zoom to the furthest optical setting (3x). Take a pcture; preferably something a dozen meters away or so. Then just touch the button lightly to zoom back one step (there are 7 zoom settings in total if I recall; maybe only 6); and take the same photo. When you compare these the soft setting of the second photo should be apparent.

The firmware went smoothly for me and is fairly simple to do.

Hope this helps someone.

I have lost the software to download photos from my cannon powershot a20. please help.

You can download software from the manufacturer's web site at

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Canon Powershot A20 compatible with Vista?

Canon did not update their drivers for many of their cameras under the Vista OS. In order to download photos, you'll need to do the following. Sorry, but it's the only way:

Go to this page, and select "Drivers and Dwonlaods" tab. Wait 20 seconds, then select Windows XP. Then download your driver.

If the camera still doesn't download with the driver, then next recommend using a compact flash card reader instead to download your photos (been using one for years, and highly recommend it instead of downloading directly from the camera).
