Suggestion: Remove the memory chip from the Canon and get a reader that plugs directly into your USB port on the vaio. Available online or at any computer shop or big box store. You should be able to open the photos directly from the chip. They'll be in a DCIM folder - you may have to easter-egg around a bit, or search for *.jpg
Lots faster and less frustrating than the camera's software interface.
I ran into the same problem with my printer. If you go to the cannon website you should be able to download a plug in to your computer that will update everything so that you are able to download photos
There are no drivers available to make the Canon PowerShot A30 work with Windows Vista. Your best bet is to get a CF card reader ($15 or less) with a USB connector and put your card from the camera into it. Windows Vista will recognize the card reader and the photos without any drivers.
You can copy the photos to a temp directory, then have zoombrowser import the photos from that temp directory (instead of directly from the camera). This way you can utilize zoombrowser's naming function during the import.
Make sure you turned the camera on. Could be a bad cable. Best thing to get is a usb card reader. Some people report problems of bent pins because of removing and reinserting them in the camera. So be careful there. Re-Install the software that came with it from Canon. Or you can download it from CanonUSA. URL below.
choose your OS and download what you need.
Looks like ZoomBrowser is up to 6.1 now.
You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".
It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.
But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).
