Computer doesn't detect camera

Never had a problem uploading images before with my Canon A590 IS, but using Adobe or the ZoomBrowser, neither finds my camera today. Any ideas?

This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive 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:

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 ).

Recently I bought the Canon Ixus 220 HS compact camera. With the camera I received some software among other things Zoombrowser ex. Regretfully this program doesn't work properly from the start. When...


Is your Camera detected when connected to the PC via the PTP in the Device Manager? Check your "Device Manager". In Windows 7, sometimes the camera is not detected, but you can try "Workaround when the camera cannot be detected by Windows 7(when connected via PTP)". If the device is not detect in the Device Manager the software will not work.

The update is only for the software ie Zoombrowser(Win7x64) -> update to version ZoomBrowser EX 6.7.2 Updater.

Hope it helps & good luck.

Can i download video from canon a590 to pc?


Install and use the software that came with the camera. It's either ZoomBrowser (for Windows) or ImageBrowser (for Mac). This will allow you to download both still images and video clips from the camera.

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP


I had same problem: ZoomBrowser had been working fine on XP sp2, but today I found it could no longer detect the camera. My guess is some operating system patch caused it to stop working. I finally got it working again by doing the following:

1) Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ , select Powershot G1 as the product, and get the list of available updates.

2) Download and install the latest version of ZoomBrowser (6.0.1).

3) Download and (re-)install the USB driver ( Canon Digital Camera WIA Driver 3.9.1). It will probably tell you it's already installed, but continue with the install anyway. It will also warn you that the driver isn't certified for XP, but ignore that and continue.

4) Reconnect the camera to the USB port on the computer and put it into upload mode. *Now* a window should pop up with a selection of programs you can launch, including ZoomBrowser. Yay!

Hope this helps.
