Canon software locked up my windows vista box on installation, can't do anything

Tried to load Canon's software before hooking up camera via USB. Windows Vista system is now hung, will not reboot and I cannot regain control. I want to be able to go into Windows Safe Mode but I held f8 key down after reboot and I cannot get a safe mode choice to come up. Any thoughts? Thanks

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

MacBook Pro won't recognize canon powershot SD400


Hello. You need to probably reinstall the drivers. but first you have to remove the drivers that are all ready installed. first unplug your usb cord. then to remove the drivers allready installed,, on your computer, press start, then when the box open's up, then right click on computer. another box will open up. then left click at the bottom of that box on properties. another box will open up, then click on device manager. after you click on device manager another box will open up with all your devices. look for the previous camera you had installed. it might be under imaging devices. once you locate that, then right click on it. then choose uninstall. Make sure you have your new software loaded in your cd/dvd rom drive. after it is done uninstalling, just restart your computer. at the bottom right of your screen, it should say, found new device, it will ask you from where do you want to load the new drivers for it. click on the drive that contains the software. it then will load your new drivers up. It then should communicate with your camera. Hope this helps. Ron

Need drivers for Windows Vista


Have you tried just hooking up the camera via the USB? Vista already has most drivers installed. Make sure you run Windows Update first. Also you can try the Sony website itself.

Cannot load software cd that came with camera


If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon device may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.

Connection between camera and computer


What operating system are you using? Is you camera connected via USB? Have you tried using another USB port? Did you make sure to install the software before plugging in your camera?

Generally if you are running Windows 98, you will need to reboot after installing the software to even have a chance of the camera being recognized correctly.

If you are running Windows 2000, XP or Vista, the camera should be recognized and a driver installed or searched for from the CD software you installed before plugging in the camera.

Sometimes if you plug in the camera first without installing the software, the PC finds a new device with no driver. You can see this by going to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and you should see and exclamation on a device in the list. You need to remove this item and reboot your PC.

Now install the software first and when the install is done, then plug in your camera. Generally this works out pretty well.

Cannot download photos


What is ptp utility new to me. I suggest the first thing to do is if you have the software from the disk loaded - you un install it. Restart the computer - plug camera in and set it to upload mode. Windows scanner/Camera Wizard will take you along from there. If it does not change the USB port. Come back with the next move

Unrecognized USB device


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!
