Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Software not being recognized

Hi, I have a brand new Canon Powershot A630, and for some reason, my Dell Windows computer will not recognize the CD-Rom software. I feel like I've tried everything, even trying to add a program through a CD on Add Programs. Help!

The software on the CD is slightly outdated. Here is the driver download page for your camera: http://alpha02.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?RQF=MENU&RQS=WWUCA910&LA=1187365946277&SV=WWUCA1351&TRF=MAIN You probably don't need the drivers, but they're there if you do need them. What you do need is "ZoomBrowser EX5.8b Updater for Windows" Although it says it's an updater, you can use it even if you aren't updating anything. This includes CameraWindow, and all the software that would be on your CD.

Hi there,

If you want to download the pictures on your camera, try plugging it into the usb port of your computer using the usb cable. Then turn on the camera and make sure it is set to REVIEW MODE. Usually, this opens the sofware. It not, then, on your computer, click Start button >> All Programs >> Accessories and choose Scanners and Cameras. It will open up the window which will show the pictures and from there, follow the steps to download them.


Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FIxYa.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

Just got powershotsx10is did't have software(cd-rom)for my computer.can i get a download off internet.


you don't really need a software to use it, both Windows and Mac will recognize the camera and will allow you to download the images and videos.

Canon's softwares are far from being user friendly and it is a waste of space of your hard drive

Computer doesn't recognize camera


Remove previous all installation/ file if any. Insert the Driver CD in the CD ROM again a wizard interface would be active, from that wizard complete the installation by clicking Next - Next. Do not plug the camera before fresh installation complete. If wizard ask to plug your camera, then plug it.
