Hai Krista,

We know that window 98 system cannot directly detect and play a new device that we attached to the computer, so the way is you can use your camera as you like, but when you need to transfer picture from camera to PC, remove the memory card and read it using Card Reader, if you don't have that device buy it, it's not expensive one, around USD 9$.

Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.

Slow record time/goes into standby mode


It sounds as if it is working mechanically, but there is a software fault.

Try downloading a new driver for it (or use the CD which you may still have)

They are available free Here.

(Please contact again if this does not solve the issue; If it does, Please rata as Fixya! so others may benefit. Thanks.)

The software came with my camera, received as a Christmas gift (no doubt a "regift"). The drivers and software work fine on XP but as soon as you finally get to see a picture taken with that camera you will likely toss it out or "regift" it yourself.

It supersucks.

Upload pictures to desktop

Do you have to switch the camera on manually?, as it may just be indicating that it is connected to pc. Try completely uninstalling the software and drivers. Disconnect camera and re install drivers, then try connecting to a different usb port. Check in my computer to see if the camera comes up as a storage disk.
