Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
Okay, I've looked on a number of forums and cannot find a solution...
Camera: Canon Powershot SD750
OS: Windows Vista
Problem started when I downloaded the Vista update service pack 2.
The computer recognizes camera, opens dialog box when connected, I can download pictures using windows software, and the camera shows up under my hardware.
However, when I am using the canon software (zoombrowser particularly) and try to connect to the camera to acquire images, I get the error message "Cannot detect camera. Check connection to camera, then retry." (Zoombrowser does not show up as an option in the dialog box either.)
I have tried different USB ports; I tried going through canon's website and downloading the updates (as suggested in your forum "cannot detect camera"), uninstalled everything "canon" on my computer (which I assumed would be one uninstall, but was about 9 separate programs/files (!) and, btw, my camera still showed up under hardware in control panel), reinstalled software using Canon's digital camera solution disk v. 30.2, and downloaded a software/driver patch from softwarepatch.com.
I don't know if the solution disk is the actual installation software, hence dowloading the patch. I cannot seem to find any other disks...isn't there a way to reinstall without it?
Thank you, Susan

I am assuming that you are using ZoomBrowser EX ver 5.8 which comes with the SD750's Digital Camera Solutions disc. Therefore these instruction will pertain to that version of the program.
You can rename image files using four different naming schemes:
1. Image Name + Number (e.g. Vacation_001.jpg)
2. Shooting date + Number (e.g. 20080601_001.jpg)
3. Name + Shooting date + Number OR
4. Shooting date + Name + Number
There isn't a provision for a time stamp naming convention.
To rename a group of images using one of the above naming schemes simply open ZoomBrowser and point it to the folder that contains the images you wish to rename. For this example let's assume it was your recent vacation photos.
I would utilize either Zoom or Scroll mode to view the images on the main screen. Then follow these steps:
1. Click the task panel labeled "View & Classify"
2. Next click the sub panel "Rename Multiple Files"
3. On the left hand panel click Step 1 "Select images"
[Here you can select any or all images in the folder]
4. Next click Step 2 "Specify Rename Settings"
5. Select the way you want the files to be named and enter
the appropriate settings. Note: If you wish to keep the original
file and make a copy with the new naming scheme make
sure you check "Make Copies of files"
6. Lastly click Finish and your newly renamed files will be there
in the folder.
Hopes this helps.

Most of the issues can be solved by either reinstalling the software or by disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
In this case we can close in on three solutions
1) The USB drive in the system is not functioning. Try connecting any other USB devices to the same USB port and check whether it works or not. If the other device works well then it could be a problem with the data cable or with the port in the camera (usually firewire)
2) The data cable used to transfer data might have become faulty.Try using another data cable if possible and still the same issue continues then try connecting another camera to the system and if the other camera gets detected then the problem must be with the camera.
3) Try connecting the same camera to another system and see whether the camera gets detected. If no, then the port in the camera is defective.
After this we can close in on which could be faulty. data cable / Computer / Camera.
