Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
Did install and when I hook up the camera to my PC and turn the camera on, get message along the lines of 'unrecognized USB device failure'. Have tried multiple settings in the BIOS for USB. Have tried to install camera via control panel - no luck. Went through all the troubleshooting steps XP has - nada. The Canon manual mentions problems with root hubs connected via cables. I disconnected the cable I had and plugged the camera into the USB ports connected directly to the MOBO - still no luck. I have a P4P800E Delux MOBO. Running Windows XP with service pack 2. I am stumped.
I'm having the same problem, just called Canon and they said that there's a missing or damaged .dll (driver) that's preventing Windows from recognizing the camera. I looked into getting support from Microsoft but I don't want to pay for it, so I didn't bother. I bought an inexpensive USB card reader from SONY (about $20) and used that to download the photos.

Check whether the software CD you received with the camera, support the Win XP OS. In case it doesn't, go to the Canon web site and download the relevant drivers for you camera and OS. Good luck!
