My solution disk is cracked.

I received the camera as a gift last year. When my computer crashed recently, I went to reload the disk, but have discovered it is cracked. I have a windows xp. I am told I can download from Canon's site, but don't know what to ask for.
Thanks!

    Thank you again, but offering your solution. Sorry, I forgot to include my model number which I could not find in the drop down menu. It is A570 IS. A dear Irish friend has offered me her disk but it is a 22.0 version and mine is 30.0 so I think I would be adding more trouble by downloading hers.

    What, Mr. IrishDruid, would you suggest, please?

Go here and select your model fom the drop down menu and click on go. Wait for the full page to load, and Selct Windows XP from the drop down. That will provide you with the driver, which you can then download.

Should you have any difficulty, please reply with the exact model of your camera and I will help further.

Should this solution fix your issue, kindly rate it as Fixya.

    Oops..I totally forgot to provide you a link the first time around..my apologies! OK, just went to the site and checked the drivers for your model and Windows XP. It says that you do not require a driver for this model on WinXP.

    You should be OK to just plug in the camera to your PC and transfer files. You can do the following:
    1. Plug in the camera to the PC and ensure it is
    detected by the PC.

    2. Right click START button and select Explore.

    3. From the left panel, scroll to the drive corresponding to your camera. (It
    will usually be located after the last
    DVD/CD ROM Drive letter.

    4. Click on that drive to expand the folders in the right pane.

    5. Search for the relevant pictures from a folder within that drive.

    6. Copy the required pics (Hold CTRL and click on pics in case you want to
    select more than one pic). Then rightt click and select "COPY"

    7. Once you copied all the needed pics, select a folder on your computer (or
    create a new one) and paste the pics into this folder.

    8. You're done :)



    Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to
    post them here.

I am using this camera from last 3 years. It was working fine. Suddenly, a problem occurred. Now whenever I select the Auto mode, it is set to video option instead of still image. I have formatted...


I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.

Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?

Software for computer for this camera


You can get the driver from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_product.asp?id=868

But have you considered 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 wish.

you do not actually need a disk to up load images to the computer. Any other software that may on the disk is bettered by free downloads such as Picasa or image editors from Serif or any other You also have a basic built-in one on your computer. Simply plug the camera into the computer, set it to upload and you will get a window come up asking what to do. Set it to Camera/Scanner wizard and follow the prompts.
