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.

Olympus master will not recognize my stylus 710


The software for your camera is outdated and not supported by the later version of Windows, If Olympus does not have a later version on their website you are out of luck. Windows Vista had a lot of issues. My advice would be get rid of Windows Vista and install Windows XP.
It is far better.

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.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

Restoring deleted pictures


if you haven't continued to use the memory card you can download a freeware called glary undelete.
it will let you undelete most of the photos.there are several available.
The one I used was Glary undelete.
here is the text from the about section.
Glary Undelete is a free and easy-to-use yet powerful file undelete solution for FAT and NTFS file systems. It will bring back files emptied from the Recycle Bin, in a DOS window, from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down. It will even recover files that have been deleted by bugs, crashes and viruses!

Glary Undelete works under Win 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista operating systems. The program supports all Windows file systems for hard and floppy drives including FAT12/16/32,NTFS/NTFS5 and image recovery from CompactFlash, SmartMedia, MultiMedia and Secure Digital cards.

good luck

I have windows vista and am unable to install software for my dau


The software was written for windows XP or vista, so it will not work for you. Heres what you can do to get the photos on the computer. Get a card reader, take out the media card and use the card reader to download the images.

Adobe has a program that you can use to edit your photos. Here's a link

Well, this is a new one for me. Do you still have the same photo software? Open up whatever you do have and click on help and unloading camera or something similar. There must be a way.

If you don't have any photo software, I would go to www.tucows and search for freeware photo software -that is compatible with vista and download something there to use.

Alternatively You could simply open up my computer click on the camera drive and open it to see the photos then selct all>copy then go somewhere and create a new folder to paste them into. Then go back anddelte them off your camera. YOu'll still need a photo proggy. I'll bet you have one though. Have a look at everything on your hard and see what you have.
