about the cards their models must be not same that's why you don't get the soft copy of other pics on your computer ..or

For those of you with a Canon camera of the above models; there is a firmware release that will make the autofocus work a bit better.
Here are the links (a40,a30,a20,a10)

http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA10/PSA10_Adjustment-e.html

It mainly fixes the soft-focus problem with the second to last telephoto setting:
In case you haven't seen this problem, take an A40 and zoom to the furthest optical setting (3x). Take a pcture; preferably something a dozen meters away or so. Then just touch the button lightly to zoom back one step (there are 7 zoom settings in total if I recall; maybe only 6); and take the same photo. When you compare these the soft setting of the second photo should be apparent.

The firmware went smoothly for me and is fairly simple to do.


Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: will not transfer pictures to 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

How can I load pictures from my Powershot A40 to my computer with Windows 10?


Two ways.

Connecting to the computer via the lead, you should open Windows File Explorer and you will see the storage in the camera as a removable storage

or

you go to the Canon website and get all the software including the download software and add-ons. The Win 7 software should be good on Win 10 and includes ZoomBrowser and PhotoStitch.

How do I transfer pictures from my camera to the computer?


images are stored on standard Type I CompactFlash cards. Consider the included 8 MB card a starter capacity, since its 12-picture limit means you'll need to return to your computer often to transfer images and free up the card for more pictures. A 128 MB card is a great size for this camera, storing around 200 images. To transfer images to your computer, simply attach the included USB cable between your PC and your camera. Your computer should automatically recognize your camera and let you move the pictures to your hard drive. Simply click on my computer click on new drive shown in this folder, select all the pictures, copy them and past to your desired location,
you can also copy picture by using card reader, put the SD card in card reader and follow the same procedure
Good luck, do rate the solution if helped

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

+driver for canon powershot a 40 on vista


I had same problem. Called Canon and found out A40 is not compatible with Vista so there is no driver. But you can download pics to your Vista by purchasing USB Memory Card Reader/Writer you can find at Walmart for about $12.00. You put your Flash card in device and has USB that plugs in computer for downloading pics.
