Question about Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to install and upload for windows Millennium edition

Hi,

I recently had to revert to my old computer when the screen on my toshiba laptop cracked. I have a Canon PowerShot a470 and when I first connected the camera to the computer the computer automatically located the software for it but then I do not know what happened. I am not sure if the computer froze or it did not install properly or even if my computer is too old for the camera and software. I tried all of the troubleshooting tiips included with the installation cd. Autorun will not work and when I click on the setup or install files nothing happens. I also get this message: winsta.dll is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL: RtiLeaveCriticalSection. I don't know what else I can do so I would appreciate some help.

Thanks.

Kristin

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: Uploading pictures form canon powershot sd500

first thing, you have to have the camera in playback (The way to view images on the camera) ((If the lens goes out you have i wrong))
If you have XP / Vista it will come up in my computer and you can copy and past images / videos from it that way. Else Scanner n camera wizzard in XP will pull images off

Solve your problem by using a card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

You need to double-click the setup file. It should have an .exe file extension.

How to Upgrade Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition Profiles to Windows XP...


This guide describes how to upgrade a Microsoft Microsoft Windows 98-based, or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition-based client that has user profiles to a Microsoft Windows XP-based client.
The following steps enable the Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) profiles to be retained throughout the process.
Your best method to retain the profiles is to join the domain during the upgrade installation process.
Otherwise, you must use a workaround method to transfer the profile information over to the Windows XP profile.
During the upgrade installation process, at the networking section, the administrator is offered the choice to join a domain or a workgroup.
If you join the domain at this juncture, you ensure that all the existing profiles are migrated successfully to the Windows XP-based installation.
If you did not join the computer to the domain during the upgrade process, you must use the following workaround method:

Join the upgraded computer to the target domain.
All applicable users must log on and log off (which generates a profile).
Copy the appropriate Application Data folder from the Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me profiles to the newly created user profiles.

You can try to select safe mode and do a system restore (Start-all programs-accessories-system tools-system restore) choosing the date when your laptop was working properly. If you are using Vista, you would see if you had a Windows Update or other such software changes. It is like undoing that but there would be no changes with your personal data. If your laptop works faster after that, please do not have the same software or update again. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Laptop won't comeback on


Try safe mode.

On safe mode return the computer to an earlier date configuration.

At some point will ask if you want to do that. And say yes.

Make sure that if for some some reasons it asks you to restore the computer to factory settings, you should say no. I hope you can do this.
