Msg saying Zoombrower is in user by another user - to switch user
I have Vista OP and every time I try to use the zoombrowser EX it prompts a msg that its in use by another user while I'm the only user. I would have to rt click and run it as an administrator for the zoombrowser to open the pics on my camera. How can I correct this problem? Please advise. Thanks

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 the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive. Just make sure that you get one that's stated capable of reading your A40's CF card: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-do-i-download-photos-or-pictures.html

I don't think you need the software to load the pictures. Just link your camera to your Computer. Your computer should recognize the camera and begin the upload process without the software. Just follow the prompts
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
remove the card clean the card pin and card slot in cam by a napkin. then try . if the same msg come then format the card and try again. If again same msg then change the card use new . Becouse every card have a limited snaps. For exam : 0001 - 1999 is life time camture capacity. if your full fill then the camera shown card error. Becouse when a card manufaturing the company fixed a total use capacity, so if that cross the msg with come that CARD ERROR.
Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.
Canon did not update drivers under the Vista OS for many of its cameras, the A40 included. Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-do-i-download-photos-or-pictures.html
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.
The sd1000 manual says that you will get this error when you have too many pictures on your memory card (aprox 1000). I am not sure how many I had on my 2GB card but it was a lot. I deleted about 50 - 100 pictures and then it started working again and the new pictures downloaded to the computer.
I am experiencing exactly the same problem with my Canon Powerhot S2IS. I tried the same thing to remedy it by cleaning off the contacts, but no luck. And it's not simply a cold weather problem. My camera does this with brand new Duracell batteries as well as with freshly recharged NMH batteries. What gives? I've had the camera for nealy 2 years and have taken excellent care of it.
