Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
You may download Canon software from here.
Bear in mind that you don't really 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.

very simple. you need to get an SD card reader from your local electronics store ( CC or Best buy). it's very simple. the memory card goes into the card reader and that ensemble plugs into any of the usb ports in your computer. once plugged in, the computer will recognize it as external memory, just like a flash/thumb drive and your comptuer can read the pictures off of the card without any interaction with the camera itself. you will be able to see both the picture and video files on the memory card. all you will need to do is copy the pictures or the videos, and paste them into any folder you wish. your computer should have no problem recognizing those files. and windows media player should not have a problem reading the video files either. with them on your computer you can just drag and drop them into any video editing software that you have. i have a canon sd750 and that's exactly what i do. works like a charm.

SOURCE: My XT will not connect to Vista.
I had same problem. I tried the Canon customer support and got similar advice Muhammed gave, along with several additional steps to try. None of them worked. The only thing that worked was the above suggestion of setting the camera itself to the PTP for the communication setting of the menu.
It's too bad you have do do this work around, it does not allow for the same level of control as the pc communication setting.

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.
