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. If your computer doesn't have a built-in card reader then you can buy an inexpensive reader that connects to your USB port. 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Call Canon for free tech support and I'd advise sending it in for free estimate. If your camera is more than a year old, you will qualify for the upgrade program which is often cheaper than repairing it.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Canon Powershot s3 will not turn on or review photos.

It is likely that an internal integrated circuit in the DC/DC board is damaged.

You will need to have your camera reviewed by a qualified technician to have it repaired, since it requires open the camera and evaluate the DC/DC board performance.

Best regards,

SOURCE: memory card error canon powershot S3 IS

Sounds like the camera may need to be sent into canon to be fixed. I had to do that once- they allow you to track the camera from the moment they receive it- till the moment it is fixed. It was not so bad.

My camera will download images to my computer


And if it does not want to download the pictures, just install Zoombrowser EX. You still can download this software from the Canon website. The drivers you need, are also there.
Without the appropriate software, no computer knows what you are connecting. We are so used to smart phones and tablets that we think all things are detected correct when connected. In the days the Powershot S3 computers still needed drivers and software. Most computers still do.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Canon PowerShot S3 IS & Windows 7


This is correct. The S3 is discovered by windows 7 and will allow download of pictures by Windows Picture download. The Canon Utilities software - Zoombrowser - will not work with windows 7 as the software cannot detect the Camera via Windows 7.. Also, Camera window will not start, if using the PC/laptop for remote image recording. If you virtualise XP within Windows 7 this still will not work. The only solution at the moment, if you are deperate, like I was (as I use the Remote Capture process a lot), is to either stick with Win Xp or Dual boot XP on a smaller partition.

Need to download Software for canon S45 Powershot


There are no known free downloads. If you know anyone who has a Canon camera, you can use their disk. You do not need to have the software to connect to your computer and download. You can use the default scanner and camera wizard to download. If you are unable to do this, check the Canon website drivers and download section for your model to see if there are any driver updates for your Operating System. However if this is not a connection issue and you just want to have the software, you should try calling Canon to order the disk for under $20, I believe. Then you will be able to update the software from www.powershot.com once you have the original version.

Hope this helps!

Lost software wanting to know if there is software I can download


The Canon web sites usually have the software you need. You may find it in a country other than your own - eg. Canon USA often has software different from Canon Europe. Other than that, try a web search, or use a card reader, if the pc does not recognise the camera.

Unable to download pics to pc


Your Lexmark printer software may have changed the Canon software so that Lexmark is default. You need to reinstall an updated driver again for the camera. There are other great software utilities here too.

It should be a simple software problem. Only other solution is the USB cable or USB port fault.
