Canon IXY 800 IS problem with connecting to computer

So, I bought this new Canon IXY 800 IS, and I love it. BUT, the only problem is when I installed the software on my computer, I plugged in the camera, and the transfer software came up, and when it said it was connecting to the device, it froze. I tried several times, same result. PLEASE HELP!

Bought used ixy 10.0 mega pixels 3x15 zoom lens no instruction manuel. Battery is dead. can i recharge battery or must i replace...what is manual available

If you have the IXY 1000, you can download a manual here (the US version is the SD900). The battery is a Canon proprietary battery, and there is a recharger available from Canon to charge the battery, The specific charger you need will depend on where you live -- different countries have different standard voltages and connector plugs.

Lcd screen

Actually this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Take a picture while the screen is black and download it to your computer. Is the picture also black? If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

Can,t download to vista

Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Canon IXY Digital 800 IS

Find a few Canon repair shops, and describe them your problem, and they should be able to give you rough estimates. I've had estimates for same mechanical problem from $200 to $15.

If you are adventurous (and the manufacturer's warranty is expired), remove all the tiny screws, and see if this is something simple, and you can tell repairman what specific part you need - their estimate will be more accurate that way.
