Use a card reader to download directly from your camera's memory card. They're relatively inexpensive these days, and should be much quicker in download speed in comparison with your camera.

Need of Canon digital solution disk Powershot G3 Camera for instaling on Windows 7 (64-bit)


You don't need any additional software.


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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Windows Vista does not recognize Canon PowerShot A80


Vista requires updated drivers for most of the older cameras. Unfortunately, Canon chose not to update the drivers for many of these cameras, including the A80. BUT please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a 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. Just make sure that you get one that's stated capable of reading a CF card:

If nothing else works, try using a usb card reader to get the pictures into the computer's hard drive.
A nice usb card reader is available in all electronics stores such as Best Buy, Walmart, RadioShack, and so on.

Hey EGrett,
I am providing a link below to the drivers for your camera. The manufacturer does not show a download of the software available for your operating system, but you could probably get a copy of it by calling Canon. I hope this helps!

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

See this link for details about the WIA driver.

About the error "driver update failed" rea

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.
