Question about Canon Digital Cameras

Not wanting ZoomBrowser

A while ago I bought a Canon Powershot A540, and it's worked fine, but then died. I returned it, and everything has been working well.
When using my original camera, I discovered somehow how to keep the ZoomBroswer from coming on.
I stopped taking pictures for a while for some reason, and there have been some changes made to my computer. I ended up having to reinstall the software for the camera.
Now I love the upload feature, but I NEVER use the stupid photo editing portion. I tried uninstalling zoombrowser and keeping the EOS Utility, hoping that would do it, but nothing, so I reinstalled the programs, and though the pictures are uploading just fine, as soon as they are finished uploading, zoombrowser pops up.
Can anyone tell me how I managed to turn the photo editor portion off while keeping the upload capability?

I just got a new computer and can't find my cd to install my camera. Could you help me? I have a Power Shot A540. Thank You, Connie Woodman


you can go to the canon website and download their software for free.

the link is http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010470.asp

if this doesn't work try: http://software.canon-europe.com/ and under the 'cameras' drop-down list, select your camera. then the operating system on your computer, then your chosen language and off you go, look for the Zoombrowser software.

if these don't work try http://driverscollection.com/?H=PowerShot%20A450&By=Canon

hope this helps :D

Canon Powershot A540 - Change Batteries when Batteries Fully Charged


Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP


I had same problem: ZoomBrowser had been working fine on XP sp2, but today I found it could no longer detect the camera. My guess is some operating system patch caused it to stop working. I finally got it working again by doing the following:

1) Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ , select Powershot G1 as the product, and get the list of available updates.

2) Download and install the latest version of ZoomBrowser (6.0.1).

3) Download and (re-)install the USB driver ( Canon Digital Camera WIA Driver 3.9.1). It will probably tell you it's already installed, but continue with the install anyway. It will also warn you that the driver isn't certified for XP, but ignore that and continue.

4) Reconnect the camera to the USB port on the computer and put it into upload mode. *Now* a window should pop up with a selection of programs you can launch, including ZoomBrowser. Yay!

Hope this helps.

Is your canon powershot 540 not turning all of the sudden?


I had the same problem.I called Canon and thanks to their suggestion my camera now works.I was using the wrong type of batteries.The best ones to use are rec-chargeable or alkaline batteries specifically for digital devices.I bought the alkaline ones at Shoppers Drug Mart for $7 for two.Hope that works for you.
