Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

1 Answer


I have been using my canon ixus 750 with windows XP for over 12 months with no problems. The minute I connected my camera to my computer(windows xp) , i would be asked by the canon software (supplied with the camera) which photographs I would like to import and I could easily choose. That was it. Perfect !

Ever since I bought a new windows vista computer, i seem to be facing the following problems :

1. When I connect my camera to my new computer(windows vista) , I can not seem to get the canon software (supplied with the camera) to ask me which photographs I would like to import ( I have tried selecting camera window as the default action, but it does not work)

2. By default vista offers to have me import snaps using windows gallery, which I am not very happy with. How can I get vista to continue to use the cannon software (camera window) to import snaps ?

    I have an old Ixus II and a newer Ixus 750 both of which worked perfectly with the software provided on my old Acer notebook running Windows XP professional, i recently treated myself to a new Acer 5920 and can no longer get Canon Camera Window to run for either camera! I have trawled the net looking for updated drivers for Vista but have had little success! Anyone know where to find the required software update for Vista?

I had the same problem and managed to fix it by simply upgrading zoom browser to the latest version ( try the canon website)

For Windows XP you actually don't need to install anything to connect your Canon Ixus to your computer.

You can download other Canon software from here
