Lost my Canon PowerShot A560 disk

Hey, I have lost my Canon PowerShot A560 disk.
I have recently wiped my laptop and I have lost the software to extract the photos off of the Camera. Could someone please help me by telling me where I can find the software needed for my Canon PowerShot A560.
Many thanks, Olly. :-)

As a solution I highly recommend that you forego the old cable to the camera route, and instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. Card readers are very inexpensive, much 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 headache. 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 :-)

Hello, I lost the disc for my powershot a560, can you help me? I'm on Windows xp


You can download Canon software from
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a560#DriversAndSoftware

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

My computer doesn't recognize my camera. There is no CANON library in my computer. I need to download on my laptop the program to transfer my photo from my camera to the computer.


You don't really need any software program. Just get a separate card reader and use it to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see this article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your videos and photos.

this is not a big issue.
after delting your DISK and installing your OS again removes al r programs from your computer. now you must install the camera EOS software in your system again.
this can be done by using the software disk which come with the camera. even if you dont have the disk the software can be donwloaded from canons site itself.
