Re: Software problem

There must be another type of problem here.
Windows XP needs no additional software to read a camera.
This is seen as an external removeable drive.
Ensure the camera is plugged  in correctly and set to upload.
Make sure there is a card in the camera with images.
If the camera has an internal memory read the manual on how this may have to transfer to a card
Windows should then put up the scanner/Camera  Wizard, asking what to do- Read images from the folder is the item to select.
Come back if still in trouble.

No Software for Windows XP

Hi Katherine, unfortunately the bundled software is copyright and only updates can be downloaded from Canon. You could try contact your closest Canon Service Centre to order/purchase a replacement Solution Disk or they may even be kind enough to give you a copy should an extra one happen to be in their posession. The good news however, is that you should be able to download your images using Windows XP without the need to install anything. The bad news is that if you are getting the "device can work faster" message from Windows, it is highly likely your computers hardware may be a little outdated and incapable of connecting to the camera. I have seen this before and fixed it by installing a USB 2.0 card into the computer, not knowing much about your computer though I cannot gaurantee this is the solution. A sure way to get your images would be to purchase USB SD card reader. They are cheap to buy and will plug into almost any computer without hassle and allow you to access the images stored on your card. Best of luck!

Can not copy/ transfer images from Fuji FinePix A370 to PC

Remove the camera's software and reinstall. If this fails to solve the problem, use a memory card reader to transfer images from the card.

Connect the Camera to PC using the supplied USB cable, for windows XP and later versions the pc will identify the camera device and pop-up a window asking for "what to do next?"
Select copy pictures from camera from the displayed list.

Canon G3 powershot

If you only want to copy the images from your G3 onto your PC, you can use the pre-installed Windows XP application (if you have that OS) for that purpose. If you need the full S/W package, please go to the Canon Website;

Problems when connecting Canon Powershot A70 - Cannot find program to upload pix

The popup would be the windows wizard wanting to assist with downloading image files. There's 2 popups one is the wizard and you'll click on transfer images & it walks you step by step to download the images. The other one is just a one click option & you can copy the images files to your computer. But since those options don't seem to work for you - one solution would be to click on "my computer" and you'll either find your camera or memory card listed along side your computers C drive. If you're downloading images from the camera - it needs to be hooked up via the cable + the camera probably needs to be turned on. Some cameras also have a setting or button to turn in order to download the images.
