Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Computer not recognizing my camera when connected

I have a laptop running Windows Vista, the Canon Zoombrowser EX software that came with the camera, a USB connection cord, and the Canon SD1000. For the past year, I have been able to connect my camera to my laptop and download pictures instantly. All of a sudden, the laptop does not recognize that the camera is plugged. Also, I have tried to connect to my camera by opening the ZoomBrowser EX software and clicking 'Acquire & Camera Settings' then click 'Connect to Camera'. When I do this, I'm receiving the following error message: Cannot detect camera. Check connection to camera and then retry. The title of the error message screen is 'CameraWindow'.
I don't know why this stopped working all of a sudden. I did have my security software uninstalled and reinstalled--perhaps this closed something off? I have since unistalled and reinstalled the Canon software and then tried connecting my camera, but this did not work either. I'm still receivng the same error. I'm stuck and can't download my pictures to my laptop. Please help!

Most of the issues can be solved by either reinstalling the software or by disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
In this case we can close in on three solutions
1) The USB drive in the system is not functioning. Try connecting any other USB devices to the same USB port and check whether it works or not. If the other device works well then it could be a problem with the data cable or with the port in the camera (usually firewire)

2) The data cable used to transfer data might have become faulty.Try using another data cable if possible and still the same issue continues then try connecting another camera to the system and if the other camera gets detected then the problem must be with the camera.

3) Try connecting the same camera to another system and see whether the camera gets detected. If no, then the port in the camera is defective.

After this we can close in on which could be faulty. data cable / Computer / Camera.

Asus Computer doesnt recognize my Canon power shot 300 I have windows 7


Don't forget to install the Canon software that came with the camera. If you lost the camera, try the Canon website I managed to get the newest software for Windows 7 last week. Works fine.
Before your computer can work with any camera, you need drivers and some management software. Canons software is called ZoomBrowser EX. (also needed, when you want to manage pictures from a external card reader)

Recently I bought the Canon Ixus 220 HS compact camera. With the camera I received some software among other things Zoombrowser ex. Regretfully this program doesn't work properly from the start. When...


Is your Camera detected when connected to the PC via the PTP in the Device Manager? Check your "Device Manager". In Windows 7, sometimes the camera is not detected, but you can try "Workaround when the camera cannot be detected by Windows 7(when connected via PTP)". If the device is not detect in the Device Manager the software will not work.

The update is only for the software ie Zoombrowser(Win7x64) -> update to version ZoomBrowser EX 6.7.2 Updater.

Hope it helps & good luck.

My computer doesn't recognize my camera anymore


Norton has changed your registry...that's why the camera is no longer recognized. Solve your problem the way the pros do....use a card reader.

Canon zoombrowser ex ver 6.4.1 with windows 7


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.

Camera won't work with vista


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.

Zoombrowser not working- not able to download RAW images to computer


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.

Cannot download video to windows vista


A USB cable will not transfer video from this camera. you have to have the video cable, which plugs in at the bottom of the front of the camera, next to the S-video. Hope this helps.

Well, that worked perfectly. Turn on your Rebel XT camera and under Menu then Tools go to Communication and set it to Print/PTP. Thank you to all you very smart people!
