Windows XP or later normally finds devices plugged into the usb port, cameras are often recognised as a
USB Mass Storage Device or sometimes as an extra hard drive.
Try connecting you camera to your PC, click on "My Computer" and see if a new drive has popped up. This is probably it, just click on the drive.
If that doesn't work, go the camera manufacturers website, look for and click on the "Support" option then Downloads. With luck you should be able to navigate your way the to drivers you require and then download and install them.
Do you mean software for the computer so that it handles your images?
If your shooting in Jpeg, your computer should recognise the camera as a file storage device automatically after you connect the camera, you should see a folder corresponding to your camera in my computer, or maybe something like "removable drive F" (the F was just a example, may well be something different dependin on what you have plugged in your computer, USB Drives etc), you'll see a wee bubble in the corner near the clock saying something like a new hardware device has been dtected, let that run its course while your comp recognises it.
After that just double click the folder, should see your jpegs in there- you wont be able to do to much with them without some sort of image processing software- I'd check the manufacturers website see if they supply anything free that would usually come with the camera on CD- alot o them supply a version of photoshop elements that lets you do some post processing (convert to black and white, etc)
I would recommend getting a card reader, remove your memory card from your camera and insert it into the card reader, connect the card reader into your computer via the USB port and download using Picasa3 which is free software from Google. Simple, fast and works for any camera
I had the same problem with my camera & mac. I got this off the Fuji site and it worked for me:
If images cannot be downloaded from the camera to a Macintosh, check the status of the camera and the Macintosh and resolve the problem accordingly.
1) Check the status of the camera and Macintosh. 1. Connect your camera to the Macintosh and turn the camera on. 2. Open the "Applications" folder on the Macintosh HD. 3. Double-click "Image Capture". * If the "Imaging device not connected" message appears, follow the steps described in [Checking the connection between the camera and PC]. 4. Select "Preferences" from the "Image Capture" menu. 5. The procedure for using the Image Capture Preferences window differs depending on the OS version used. Use the correct procedure for your version of Mac OS. - Mac OS 10.4: Click "General" in the Image Capture Preferences window. - Mac OS 10.3: Click "Camera" in the Image Capture Preferences window. - Mac OS 10.2: Simply proceed to the next step. 6. In "Items launched at camera connection", select "FPVBridge" and then click the [OK] button. * If FPVBridge is not among the displayed items, follow the steps in [Displaying FPVBridge] below. 7. Quit "Image Capture".
If you implement the above procedure up to step 6, FinePix Viewer launches automatically. * To stop FinePix Viewer from launching automatically, follow the steps in [FinePix Viewer Setup] below.
i am afraid this is a microsoft O/S issue. It will not allow 2 imaging devices with twain drivesrs to be recognised at the same time. You have to disconnect one at the usb plug before the O/S can see the other one.
I have a scanner with twain drivers and XP will not recognise my S5 IS until i unplug the scanner. The O/S is recognising the camera as an imaging device rather than a usb mass storage device like for my other cameras.
Either MS need to fix this conflict issue or Canon need to reconfigure their drivers.
