You don't need to use the Canon 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 you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: Software not being recognized

The software on the CD is slightly outdated. Here is the driver download page for your camera: http://alpha02.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?RQF=MENU&RQS=WWUCA910&LA=1187365946277&SV=WWUCA1351&TRF=MAIN You probably don't need the drivers, but they're there if you do need them. What you do need is "ZoomBrowser EX5.8b Updater for Windows" Although it says it's an updater, you can use it even if you aren't updating anything. This includes CameraWindow, and all the software that would be on your CD.

Select the "Start" menu in the lower left corner of your computer monitor screen. Select "Control Panel", then double-click on "Display".

Click on the upper "Settings" tab, then move the slider bar to the right, to at least 1024 x 768 pixel. Then hit Apply or OK. This will increase the screen resolution of your computer monitor so that it will be compatible with the Canon software.

Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

I HAVE A CANNON POWER SHOT SD750 I JUST GOT A NEW IMAC COMPUTER HOW DO I GET THE MY CAMRA SOFTWARE ON MY NEW COMPUTER? I DO NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL DISK THAT CAME WITH CAMERA?


I'm assuming it came with a small cd? If this is the case, you can't put it in the optical drive slot as it seems you have figured out. Go to the Canon site and download it.

Honestly though...you'll probably find that iPhoto is a better program and simpler to use. I personally use Adobe Photoshop, but that may be overkill for your purposes!

Good Luck!

Camera always says Busy


dear sir,
the first solution is to keep some of your phone memory clear,atleast 2 mb.........also keep some 100 mb free space in memory card also...if the card and camera is fully loaded then the cam is almost dead..........
if in case the cam memory and memory card has some free space then,this is the problem usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not tofunction,the only solution is to flash ur phone software from the nearest canon sevice centre,it also updates your mobile software which increases the mobile speed....

thank you.....take care
