I just got a Canon digital camera Powershot SD1100 IS, and I'm having troubles installing the software that comes with it to my computer, a Windows XP. Whenever I insert the disk into the computer, the installation window that is supposed to pop up isn't popping up. How can I fix this?

Hi

Sounds like you have 'autoplay' turned off, but it should be easy to get the CD installation program to run.

Double click on 'My Computer' and then probably your 'D' drive will be your CD or DVD drive. Double click on that and it will probably start automatically. If it doesn't start automatically it will open the CD folder, then look for a file called something like... 'setup.exe' or something like that. I don't have your CD so I don't know what it is called exactly sorry.

Hope this helps.

I dont have my install cd for my canon PowerShot SD1100 IS digital camera> how can i get around this issue?


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.

You can download Canon software for your operating system from

Computer Not Recognizing Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Elph A


Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

Hi, i have a canon powershot sd1100 is digital camera , is there drivers for my mac power pc to be able to install in my mac?


On the Canon.com website you should be able to find all the drivers and software for your operating system and the camera as well.
But, if you want to avoid all that, use a card reader to view and copy the files to you computer, no matter what kind of computer you have. All newer operating systems will detect the card reader as a mass storage device.
Hope it works.

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.

I lost my software CD to upload the pictures onto my computer, and can't find one online


You can do 2 things...
After you plug in the usb from camera to pc, windows should pick it up as either a camera (powershot sd1100) or storage device.(look in windows explorer) If not, try plugging it into a different USB slot on the PC.

Or you can purchase a seperate card reader.
