Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I have a canon powershot s1 is digital camera - 2004. I downloaded the canon cd onto my computer, but the computer doesn't recognize my camera. This program worked on my home computer with XP, but my laptop had Vista. That may be the problem.
Is there any downloads available to correct this problem?
It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.
You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):
For international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

Your camera is not compatiblewith Windows Vista. If downloading the images to the PC running WindowsVista, please use a third-party card reader.
When using a card reader, please confirm that your card reader is compatible with Windows Vista.
