Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
The camera show up as "Canon IXU DIGITAL 10" when connected to computer and all photos are tagged with this camera model name.
Somehow Windows XP managed to rename the camera. Probably because I have been uploading photo from a friend who also has an IXUS 70 and Windows got confused there was two devices with the same name and allowed to rename one. Whatever the cause the problem now is that I'm stuck with a wrong camera model and cant find a way to change it.
I have been looking for a camera reset of the IXUS 70 to no avail. I have tried to rename it in Windows XP Explorer, but the device name stays the same.
Tried to find other ways of renaming the camera, including using Photoshop Elements and Mac OS X, but haven't been able to come up with a solution.
Hope somebody will be able to help me so I can avoid the trouble of submitting the camera to Canon to do a factory reset.
The SD1000 is also known as Digital IXUS 70.
If it is showing "Canon IXU DIGITAL 10", it could be because of character limit in the field.
