Re: driver update problem for digital camera
In order to get rid of the error, you have uninstall the driver, update your operating system with updates from Microsoft (see below for instructions) and follow these suggestions:
Best method, copy the photos to the computer by connecting a card reader to the computer and plug the SD card into the card reader and transfer using your favorite software (like Picasa) or through My Computer.
Drivers are not required for the A400 and Windows XP. So you can plug in the camera, without drivers and it should work. This appears to be the one that's not working, You need to un-install the drivers and either reinstall, try updated drivers from the links below, or don't use the drivers.
This information is in the manual on page 96. See this link for the manual.
I personally have stopped altogether trying to get the drivers and software installed because they can cause more problems. I just transfer using a card reader.
If you want to use the software that comes with the A400, it's best to install ZoomBrowser, then you will need to follow to this link to get the update to this software.
Once this is done, reboot your machine to make sure the system is then up-to-date.
Make sure you have also updated your machine with Windows Updates. This is done by opening Internet Explorer and clicking on Tools | Windows Updates. Follow the links at their site to update your machine.

This worked for my Kodak C913...from Kodak Support.
To switch between the Microsoft WIA drivers and the Kodak camera driver: 1. Connect your camera to your computer.
2. Turn on your camera. NOTE: If the WIA drivers automatically detect your camera and display a window for transferring images. Click Cancel to close this window. 3. Open the Device Manager. a. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. b. In the System Properties window, select the Hardware tab. c. Click Device Manager. 4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Imaging Devices or Universal Serial Bus Controller, depending on the version of Kodak software installed on the computer. Your Kodak camera should be listed.
5. Double-click on your camera model name.
6. Select the Driver tab.
7. Click Update Driver.
8. If you have installed Windows XP Service Pack 2 or above, your system displays the Hardware Update Wizard. Select No, not this time and click Next.
9. Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced) and click Next.
10. Click Don't search. I will choose the driver to install and click Next.
11. Select the Digital Still Camera for WIA drivers if you having trouble using the Kodak drivers, or select the Kodak camera if switching from WIA to Kodak and click Next.
12. Click Finish to complete the driver update.
13. If the program selection window appears, select Windows scanner and camera wizard 14. Select Always use this program for this action and click OK to transfer your pictures.
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!
You may need to get the new WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) drivers. When you connect a digital camera to any laptop that runs WinXP, the OSmay not recognize the camera. If you download and install new drivers from the Web site, you receive the following error message when WinXP tries to detect the camera: "Windows image acquisition service error system cannot find file specified ‘imaging'." To fix this problem, you must first remove all current related camera drivers and reinstall the updated drivers.
