You need to find your original Canon solutions software disk and reinstall it. But if you can't find it, please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Need of Canon digital solution disk Powershot G3 Camera for instaling on Windows 7 (64-bit)


You don't need any additional 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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

What kind of memory card is required for my Canon Powershot G3? I am asking more for brand or type of card needed. I will be taking pics and video. Thanks`


The G3 can use SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. As far as your camera is concerned, the only differences between them are size. SD cards go up to 2GB, SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB, and SDXC cards go from 64GB to 2TB.

The speed of the card won't matter much for shooting stills. For videos you'll want at least Class 4. As for the brand, stick with any of the major brands and you'll be fine.

I recently received a Canon Powershot S200 Digital Elph, and When I put the CF card into the slot, every time it is turned on it says CF error. Any way I can fix this?


Did you ever format the card in the camera before trying to use it? This will erase the card so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary. Formatting will get your card working.

Have a canon powershot A40...can download pics on other computers through camera and scanner wizard, but have a new refurbished machine that is great, but flashes the ''can not detect camera''. The sound...


Invest in a USB card reader to read the CF card from your camera (around $15). Your camera was made before picture transfer protocol (PTP) was develeoped, which is what allows the camera and scanner wizard to work. With the card reader, you put your card into it, and your computer 'sees' the card reader as another drive on the computer, like a flash drive.

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;
