Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't download photos from camera to Windows Vista on laptop

All the "fix-it" suggestions and freeware I've searched for only help Windows versions XP and earlier versions. Since the camera is 2+ years old, the disk it came with won't help. This is work-related and a time-sensitive problem. SOS! 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 these days. Just make sure you get one that's stated capable of reading your A40's CF card (if you need it right now, Walmart has a good selection of these):

    oops, just noticed you have an SD550. You'll want an sd card reader. These are extremely inexpensive (I've seen them $2) and available just about anywhere.

It might take some time being a freeware driver solution

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

You can install the previous version of Windows - this is Windows XP or you can install the latest version of Windows - this is Windows 7.
You can install a Linux operating system such as Ubuntu or Red Hat
Google search for Linux operating systems to download Linux freeware program.

I wanna edit photo can u give me any .com i can edit photo's?


Hi lil_cutey200, Check out GIMP. it is a freeware software and has full functionality and quality in editing photo's. the website for gimp is http://www.gimp.org/
To download directly, download from http://www.gimp.org/downloads/
The current version is GIMP 2.6.11 This is for windows XP Sp2 or later. There are older versions for older Windows OS or version for Linux (non windows machines)
It's useful and well worth your time, may not be exactly like photoshop but definatly will be able to perform (edit photo's) for home use.
Good Luck...

Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.
