    Loaded the software, but when I try to connect the camera, I get a Windows error saying that the USB device is not recognized. Looks like I'm not alone, and the re is no real solution :-(

Hi

I don't know what operating system you are using, and I don't know how to make it work with a MAC sorry.

If your camera won't connect when plugged in via USB cable, then try a different USB port, and a different cable if you can. I have a USB mouse that quits on me sometimes, then I unplug it and plug it back in a few times and it works again.

If that doesn't work, your computer may need a driver for the camera (if you have an older version of windows) or your USB might not even be working... try another USB device in that same slot, does it work?

This could be a computer problem.... hard to say without testing a lot of different things sorry, hope the information above helps.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com (a digital camera repair business)

Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

Do you really need a driver?

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). 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo management program.

If you got the Cable and Software CD, you can try to Uninstall the Software and then Install it again, as it may be some software/Dirver fault.

I have lost my Digital Camera Solution CD ROM for canon power shot SD1100 IS - is there anywhere on the web that I can download this?


You can download it from Cannon, support,downloads, choose model. This is horrible software by the way. Once you have the basic driver for your model installed(Windows has many drivers pre-installed for many cameras), you are better off using MS picture and fax viewer. It does not have the lengthy and overly complicated stuff that comes with the camera. Anything that comes with the camera for free is usually junk written by grad students to practice their software engineering.

Have you tried formatting the card in your camera? Normally for Canons to access this function, first press menu, then select the tools menu, scroll down to the item that states your card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format.
