Question about Canon PowerShot A590IS 8MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

1 Answer

Windows Vista Computer no longer detects Canon PowerShot A590IS Camera.

When I attempt to download images to my Windows Vista machine, the computer does not seem to detect the camera. It gives an audible tone, but never shows the camera as a connected device. It worked for years, but stopped abruptly.

You may have to reinstall the Canon software suite that came with the camera. If you don't have it, it should be available online from Canon.

Canon PowerShot A590 IS problem downloading images to a windows vista machine


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My computer now has windows vista, previously windows xp. Do I need to download a driver to be able to transfer pics from the camera to my computer? Thank you Bernie.


You do not need to install a driver on Vista. It will detect the camera automatically, but the camera will be detected as "USB Mass Storage Device".

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

The Scanner/Camera Wizard will come up and ask what it is you want to do with the drive- Select a mode that suit
