Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.
But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.
You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.
I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

SOURCE: EX-Z40 camera is not responding
Well, it does look like the IC controlling the LCD display, or the LCD display itself, or the connector ribbon has got some problems. This should not be very expensive to repair, but I do not recommend you doing it yourself, if you have no prior experience. This is not a simple replace-a-chip-and-voila solution, as the parts ar very tiny indeed, and to be attempted by an inexperienced person.

use explorer to download until you implement a suitable solution. my suggestion is to reinstall the canon software.
'read only' will not affect you. you can change the file attributes once you have the image downloaded, but it usually does not remain as 'read only' after downloading a copy.

Windows updates change the registry. Sometimes this means our connected equipment no longer works. Now it is time for you to start using a separate card reader.

Consider 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
