If you open My Computer, do you see the camera listed under removable devices?
If so, you have some choices:
You can double-click on the camera icon to open a folder to see the files, and copy them to the computer.
If you want to use the camera software to copy the file, right-click on the camera icon and move the mouse over Open with -- your camera software should be there.
To try to get the computer to respond to you plugging in the camera the way it used to, you can right-click on the camera icon, then choose Properties, then Autoplay and choose the program or action to start when it is plugged in.
Hope this helps.

I lost my install disc for Canon PowerShot A560 camera


You don't need to install your camera in order to use it.


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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I lost my cd and need to download pictures to my computer, but when I put in the chip, the computer doesnt recognize it, so it does nothing. So if I dont have the cd, what do I do?


A lot of people assume that they must use the cable and sofware that came with the camera in order to download their photos. The problem is that the cable/camera way is very problematic. This link provides a solution to that lost cable, lost software disc, or computer that just fails to recognize the camera.

Lost disc


Hi,
DSC-W35 / 55 is plug and play camera, hook it with computer through USB cable, Windows will recognize it automatically and will install required drivers.
You will see Mass Storage device icon in My Computer, click it to see pictures of camera. No need of software cd installation, Windows has inbuilt drivers for this camera.
Thanks.

Different computer/lost disc/lost usb cable (i have a dell desk)


USB cable is necessary to connect camera with computer.
Windows has inbuilt driver for this model and when camera will get connected with computer, Windows will recognize it and will install driver automatically.
