This link will provide you with the downloads for drivers/software, firmware and owner guides for your Canon Powershot G5. You will need to identify which operating system your computer uses. You can get support for every windows operating system from Windows98 to Vista, as well as Mac OS9.

And I agree with gurymoto that it is easy to take your memory card out of the camera and use a card reader to transfer your photos to your computer. Your computer probably has memory card slots built into it for that purpose.

First-Class SWF Converter for Google Nexus One,Convert SWF to Nexus One Speaking...


First-Class SWF Converter for Google Nexus One,Convert SWF to Nexus One
Speaking of Google Nexus One, we will immediately say it is Google's flagship smartphone manufactured by Taiwan's HTC Corporation. It became available on January 5, 2010 and uses the Android open source mobile operating system. As a multimedia-enabled smartphone, Nexus One is capable of playing videos encoded by H.263 (encode and decode), MPEG-4 SP (encode and decode), H.264 AVC (decode), audio formats including AAC, MP3, MIDI and WAV.


Personally, I bought a brand-new Nexus One when it initially launched on the mobile market, because of its 3.7 inch wide touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera and its long battery life. I am a movie fans and I always pay much attention to the newly-released movies such as Avatar, Transformers 3, District 9, and etc. So I often need a Blu-ray Ripper or Video Converter to convert these movies to my Nexus One for enjoying when traveling. Recently, I got a bunch of SWF files from my boss and wanna merge and convert these files to my Nexus One for playback. By searching the keywords "SWF to Android Converter" through Google, I got a fabulous SWF to Nexus One Converter. With it, I import SWF to Google Nexus One (.mp4) with success.
The Detailed Tutorial I use is as below:
To begin with, free download Aunsoft SWF Converter and install it on your PC.


Second, import SWF files to this program and specify the output format workable to Nexus One.
Expand the drop-down menu of Profile, locate and choose Android -> Google Nexus One MPEG-4 (.mp4).


By the way, you may notice the button "Settings", this button is used to set the video and audio parameters, including Codec, Bitrate, Frame rate and Channels. As Nexus One can play movies up to 800x480 pixels, under this option, you can set video codec to mpeg4 or xvid. You can set frame size to 800x480, 480 x320 and 720 x480.


Next, if you want to join SWF files into one, you are allowed to check the box "Merge into One to file" on the main interface.
Fourth, specify the destination folder by using "Export To" as you wish.
Last, after the settings above are done, it is time to start the SWF conversion to Nexus One for your entertainment yourself or with your families.

Downloading Problem


I have always advised folk to leave the software disk in the box when connecting cameras and the like to a NTFS system. Plug it into USB port and Windoze will find it. Should be the same with Vista I guess Leave the disk in the box- or of you have installed stuff uninstall it. And let Windoze do the work.

Video footage will not play on computer.


I used http://www.free-codecs.com/ to download a codec pack, specifically the 'XP codec pack' located at: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/XP_Codec_Pack.htm it solved the problem.

My C3030 digital Camera won't work w/Windows XP


The C3000(which I have) and C3030 are not directly supported by any version of Windows. You must either use the Camedia software to access the camera(via USB connection) or use an external Smartmedia card reader like a ZIO(I have one, it works great). Camedia 2.0 will work(with XP) but it will not allow you to select more than one picture at a time to download from the camera. I have heard that Camedia 2.5 fixes this problem with XP and it is available for purchase from the Olympus website. I decided to get the card reader instead of the new version of Camedia because I use Photoshop to do my editing. I believe only the latest Oly cameras(like the 3020) have direct support under XP. By this I mean when you connect the camera to the PC it shows up as a new drive letter. Hope this helps.
