Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A50 I am needing the software/drivers for my SanDisk reader that reads pictures from my camera disk (actually a Canon A50 digital). My original disk is for Win98 only and my Win2000XP was working with this SanDisk somehow before I had to clean my computer out. Now I'm needing the software and when I put my disk in it says that this disk won't work with my OS. Any suggestions? Kelly Hayden

I don't have the disk for the camera. I need to download the software to transfer my pictures to the computer. How do I do this?

Using a USB lead, you shouldn't need a driver or other software. The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in them that you can drag to your desktop.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the computer and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

I've lost my original software disk that came with PowerShot SX100 IS. ZoomBrowser 6.5.1 that is downloadable from Canon support site asks for the original CD. Could you please suggest where I can...

You don't need the Canon software.

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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Trying to install software for Canon Powershot A640 on a Acer Aspire One Netbook. Receive error message "The screen resolution to execute Digital Camera Solution Disk is not sufficient."

Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.

No they should still be there, but you're going to need recovery software, and an external card reader to recover them. Take no more pics or videos until you've recovered the photos, and take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for.
You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're extremely inexpensive these days, and they actually are a better way to download your photos than directly from the camera.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

My netbook screen resolution is no good for canon instal disk

You didn't provide what netbook you got, but most netbooks today got built in SD-card readers. If your netbook does, the best solution is to remove the card from the camera and insert it into the netbooks card reader. The Canon G9 supports SD-cards, as well as SDHC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus compatible cards. I suggest using a SD or SDHC card.
You will not need to install canon software to access your pictures if you use the card reader, you will be able to access and copy/move them from the memory card in explorer (or equalent if you use Linux on your netbook). Also, it's a much faster way to move pictures from the camera to the computer, because the card reader interface is a lot faster than the USB interface to the camera.
If your netbook does not have an internal card reader, you could buy a SD card with built in USB, such as this one: This SD card behaves like a normal memory card in your camera, but plugs directly to an empty USB port on your netbook. The card will be accessable as any removable storage, in Explorer (or equalent if you use Linux).
A third solution would be to get a cheap USB 2.0 card reader. Almost any cheap USB 2.0 accepts SD cards, and would be a lot faster than connecting the camera to the netbook with a USB cable.
I hope this help you!

Need the driver for my Canon Powershot s11o

This camera was designed to work with the software that originally shipped with it. Because it's seven years old now, and you don't have the software, your best solution would be to get a card reader. You can take the CF card out of the camera, plug it into the card reader, and any Windows OS from 2000 or newer, and any Mac OS X version can read the pictures directly from the card. A card reader can be found for $15 or less.
