Question about Canon PowerShot S100 Digital Camera

ISO S100 software driver for Vista...

So I have an old Canon Powershot S100 and a new Dell with Vista (I know, I know.) Unfortunately, I no longer have the software for the S100, and I can't seem to find a downloadable driver for it that's Vista-compatible. (So the computer recognizes the camera but can't download my photos.) Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the suggestions, but unfortunately neither one works.

    Alexander, I don't have a card reader and don't think I can get one before I need the photos (tomorrow).
    Jackboy - when I connect the camera, I get a message that Windows needs to install driver software, which it's unable to find (as am I).

    Any other ideas? Thanks for your help!

    Best,
    Jessica

    Windows Vista computer no longer sees the camera when it is plugged in for downloading. It worked fine for years.

The reason why the s100 will not work with windows vista is described at this link.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8258&kbpage=yes

basically the s100 does not support Picture Transfer Protocol or PTP which is what Vista uses.

Sigh.

If still not working from camera to computer, then take out the camera's card and insert into a Card Reader.

From the Card Reader, connect that lead to USB of computer. This will open up, if you know which driver is the Card Reader. Once known, just double clicks and the computer will do the rest. Then save then in Drive C or give it a name to a New Folder.

Merry Christmas

Vista or any other NTFS computer will recognise a camera as simply another drive.
It needs no extra software.
Plug the camera in.Making sure it is on and in the upload mode
The Scanner/Camera Wizard will come up and ask what it is you want to do with the drive- Select a mode that suit
transfer images say
there you are.
Let Windows do the work

    I know Vista has its foible's - but this should not be one of them- a camera is simply another external drive in the computers eyes.
    But back to the problem.
    I know its tomorrow already- have you access to another computer ME/2000/XP that will work?

If your camera is not relatively new and you're running Vista, Vista may have problems seeing it. Unfortunately, this can't be corrected as Canon did not update the drivers for your camera for Vista. But there exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos. Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this link, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB 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. Note that you'll need a reader stated capable of reading CF cards.
