You don't need any software.


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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: find cd software download for canon powershot SD1000 I lost my original cd

Which operating system do you have? Windows? mac? if it is windows which version? You should not need a lot of software to use the camera as you should be able to connect the camera and see the pictures (mac os 10.4 and windows XP/vista)
You can try going here to see if any of the software will help you:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=224&modelid=14901#DownloadDetailAct

You will have to select your operating system before it will show you any software otherwise you will only get the manuals.
Hope that helps

As a solution I highly recommend that you forego the old cable to the camera route, and instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are very inexpensive, much much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of headache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

Need installation disc or download site for polaroid digital t730 camera


With all digital cameras the maker delivers a CD (DVD) with software to install on your computer. This makes it possible to put the pictures from the camera on any computer. On the disk(s) are drivers for all operating systems that need them. (Windows 7 and up do have all drivers for hardware that is certified by Microsoft) And there are programs to download the pictures from the camera to the PC. Sometimes the manufactures also delivers software to organise the pictures in folders and software to view or even enhance the pictures you shot.
When you lost the disk, most of the time you can get the software on the website for your brand. Sometimes you even get newer, updated software and new drivers if needed.
If you can't get software form your brand, you always can install other generic software like Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if that is not possible you could install an external memory card reader and download the pictures via de memory card reader.

If you're using Windows Vista or 7, it's likely that drivers hadn't been updated for your camera. But the most error free way to download photos from your camera is to use an inexpensive USB card reader. Please see this link.

Installation for LUMIX DMC-LS2


The Arcsoft software that comes with most, if not all, Panasonic cameras is available as a trial download on the internet. The free version is only available on the disk that came with the camera. However, if you are using Windows XP (or maybe even Vista) you can use a free photo edit/organizer program such as Google's Picasa. As long as your computer recognizes the camera when connected, you can use most any software. If this doesn't work, you can try using a usb card reader and removing the card from your camera and accessing your images that way.

Picasa

Hope this helps.

If your new computer's operating system is Windows Vista, the driver for the Samsung Digimax D53 is incompatible. If you have W98, then you should just be able to plug and play your camera to your computer or download the driver from www.samsungcamera.com
