Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Computer does not detect camera

My computer (I run Windows Vista Home Premium) decided not to detect my Canon A590IS camera yesterday. This is the first time this has happened. All other buttons seem to be frozen while connected to the USB port. I tried Canon Utilities Camera Window, but nothing helped. Also, went under Vista Help under Scanners and Cameras but that didn't help. I went to the Canon Canada customer service site and it suggested looking under My Computer under Devices with Removeable Storage to access the Canon Solutions Disc troubleshooting guide, but the camera is not listed there!! Help!!

My computer now has windows vista, previously windows xp. Do I need to download a driver to be able to transfer pics from the camera to my computer? Thank you Bernie.


You do not need to install a driver on Vista. It will detect the camera automatically, but the camera will be detected as "USB Mass Storage Device".

I have a A590IS. Pictures will not upload when plugged into the computer. Zoombrowser says it connot detect a camera connection.


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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

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.

Digital camera not recognised by windows vista


It may be that the drivers for the Camera are not compatible with Vista. Did you update the Vista drivers.

Can you not detect via USB cable?

Vista not supporting canon eos 20 d


Pulled these from a forum:
"No issues except repeat requests to register which are solved by right clicking on the app icon and choosing "Run as Administrator". "

Also, some apps don't work, Adobe ask you to upgrade.(Typical!)
Also some font issues in Photoshop. (First hand info!)
"First of all the Adobe Type Manager no longer works on Windows Vista. We will have to find other ways to manage the font collection."

And:
"For some reason Vista wouldn't let PS CS2 create a folder and install in the default location. I had to choose an alternate location outside the the Adobe folder. I had tried to create the folder first but that didn't work either, do did renaming it."

Up to you if you want the hassle really.

So, answer is yes and no!
Good luck...
