My netbook screen resolution is no good for canon instal disk

I just bought a netbook and want to install the canon digital camera solution disk that comes with the canon g9. the resolution on my netbook only goes up to 1024 x 600 pixels and it seems I cannot install the software at this resolution. I am about to travel and need the netbook and the camera with me. Does anyone know of a solution to this problem or even if there is another programme i can use to transfer my photos from the camera to the computer?

thanks

Colin

You didn't provide what netbook you got, but most netbooks today got built in SD-card readers. If your netbook does, the best solution is to remove the card from the camera and insert it into the netbooks card reader. The Canon G9 supports SD-cards, as well as SDHC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus compatible cards. I suggest using a SD or SDHC card.
You will not need to install canon software to access your pictures if you use the card reader, you will be able to access and copy/move them from the memory card in explorer (or equalent if you use Linux on your netbook). Also, it's a much faster way to move pictures from the camera to the computer, because the card reader interface is a lot faster than the USB interface to the camera.
If your netbook does not have an internal card reader, you could buy a SD card with built in USB, such as this one: http://www.cdrdvdrmedia.com/ultra-sd2-card-2gb-sandisk.html This SD card behaves like a normal memory card in your camera, but plugs directly to an empty USB port on your netbook. The card will be accessable as any removable storage, in Explorer (or equalent if you use Linux).
A third solution would be to get a cheap USB 2.0 card reader. Almost any cheap USB 2.0 accepts SD cards, and would be a lot faster than connecting the camera to the netbook with a USB cable.
I hope this help you!

Trying to install software for Canon Powershot A640 on a Acer Aspire One Netbook. Receive error message "The screen resolution to execute Digital Camera Solution Disk is not sufficient."


Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.

The operating system is not relevent to the screen resolution. This can be set from very low to the maximum that the monitor and display card combination can handle.

If you cannot achieve the proper resolution on your computer, it is possible that the display card and monitor combination may be not up to date to work with the camera software.

You have to make sure that the screen resolution is set to the minimum setting as recomended by the manufacture.

You can find the settings in the screen settings properties. Refer to the installation instructions for details.

Intalling camera software.


Greetings Shayy,

Generally screen resolution refers to your computers resolution which is controlled via the control panel of your computer. I would try fiddling with other screen resolutions to see if this helps. This will cause items on your computer to either be larger or smaller than you are used to, but you might find you like it better.

You would go to control panel>display>settings, to adjust this.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I just bought a Canon Rebel, and I'm trying to download the EOS Digital Solution DIsck and I'm getting a message that says my screen resoltution is not sufficient? Help.


This is an easy fix.

Go to your control panel. Click start/control panel/display/settings.
There you will find your screen resolution slider. Slide all the way up to high resolution and apply settings. Your icons and everything on your screen will be smaller.

Install disk and go back and set your resolution as low or high as you wish once installed!

Hope this helps!

Screen resolution not sufficient to install ver.30.0 software.


I had the same issue with my Netbook. In order to get the software onto my netbook I had to use an external monitor. I set up my HD monitor as the main monitor through the graphics driver. I set the main monitor from notebook to monitor. Then I installed the package and set the main screen back to notebook. I can use the EOS Utility which allows my to download my raw images and remotely control my camera, but I cannot run DPP. I hope this is of help

Hi

No, it means the screen resolution for your computer. These days most computers should have their resolution to 1024x768. If you don't know how to change it ask somebody who knows a little about computers to help, its not a problem with your camera.
