Canon Powershot G2 - Looking at pics on PC

Usually I put my Compactflash card into my PC cardreader when downloading pics. Now I want to use the digital output socket on the G2 to a USB port on my PC but the PC says it cannot recognise the camera. What am I doing wrong please.

You may need to download drivers for your camera. If the camera included a CD, install the software on it.

If it did not come with a CD or you don't have one, you can download Canon's software via their website.

You may also need to use a different USB port, maybe one located on the back instead of on the front like you may be using.

If that does not work, please let me know.

+driver for canon powershot a 40 on vista


I had same problem. Called Canon and found out A40 is not compatible with Vista so there is no driver. But you can download pics to your Vista by purchasing USB Memory Card Reader/Writer you can find at Walmart for about $12.00. You put your Flash card in device and has USB that plugs in computer for downloading pics.
