Trouble using zoombrowser EX with windows vista ultimate

Every time I try to burn photos to disc my PC tells me I don't have a CD/DVD dive capable of performing this task. I know I do! Is there some sort of incompatibility between Vista & Zoom browser EX? Help please, I need to back up my photos.

    my OS is Vista Home Premium and I have the latest version of zoombrowser ex(v.6.0.c) but the zb module after installation displays an error message that says " closing zb module".

    In the Zoom Browser there i possibility to backup photos on CD-R only. DVD media type is not supported ? Impossible !

    I have the same problem as Invictus. When I first try to open the program I get this: "An unidentifed program wants acces to your computer." I believe this is a Vista Security message. After clicking on "Allow", The Zoombrowser openning panel is displayed for a few seconds and then the windows message "Zb module stopped working" It also says that Windows is trying to find a solution, which of course it never can. The only button available is "Close Program". Also the initial sign says version 6.1.1, no "c".

    I have come to the just conclusion that the program itself is flawed/has bugs. because i so desperately needed this program to work i ran my restoration disk, restoring my computer back to its factory condition, so that NO programs could conflict with ZoomBrowser and when i installed it again, it STILL DID NOT WORK, i kept getting the same problem and error message

I found the problem.
This is what I did to solve the problem:


1. stop ZB

2. Delete all the ZbThumbnail.info files under "my pictures" and "my documents"

3. Move out all photos and directories from under "my pictures". Move them to a temp directory. ex d:\temp.
4. Start ZB and download some pictures from memory card

5. Then start moving files from temp dir to "my pictures", testing ZB occasionally.

Thanks

    this fix was found after an extensive search and a lot of installing, reinstalling and messing with vista permissions etc. I copied here to help others from repr]eating my error -- the problem is very simple some existing photos in the pictures directory are incompatable with the zb module. Removing all photos to a temp file and then adding them and seeing which the zb module can read and which it can, isolates the incompatability and allows the program to run. Those files that are incompable can then be stored in another directory other than the default picture folder that zb uses.

My new PowerShot SD780 IS is totaly awsome but the ZoomBrowser software provided on the CD is completely nonfunctional. The only thing that works is PhotoStitch. Everything else needed to be sent to the trash bin.

I have a new Dell Inspiron with Windows 7. No matter what I try I can't load/download a driver for Canon Ixus 300. I have the CD, but it is not compatible with Windows7.


Your CD is for an older version of Windows and the installers/drivers have changed over time. The driver you need is part of the Windows 7 OS so you should be able to just connect the camera to the computer using the appropriate USB cable.

The software update for the ZoomBrowser EX is available here: http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000484.asp if you need. Use the drop-down menu to select Windows 7. Download and save the file. Then launch the updater (double-click) and insert your CD in the optical drive of the computer. Then follow the on-screen directions to install the ZoomBrowser EX version for Win7.

You can import from the camera with Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) and PhotoGallery (if you have the Windows Live package installed)

I hope this helps.

I have a windows 7 operating system & i am trying to move video from my Sony Handycam DCR hc36 Are there simple instructions to download/transfer the video, save it, burn it to a DVD & then...


Get a dvd-r disc. Insert it into the computer. Open My Computer and go into the disc. Format the disc if necessary. Select the format type you prefer (I use Live File). Keep that window open and plug your camera in by USB. Once connected, go into My Computer again, double-click your camera's icon, go into a folder (that should be called) DCIM which is the folder your camera stores pictures and video in. Find your video(s) and drag them into the dvd disc's window. Those files should appear transparent which means they are ready to be written. Look at the toolbar and find Burn to Disc. Disc tray will open once burning is complete.

Canon zoombrowser ex ver 6.4.1 with windows 7


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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Date/time issue on Canon EOS 350D


I was wondering the same when I first got my EOS. Learned later that the digital pictures do not have date/time stamp on the front of the photos like film cameras' photos. Details of digital photos are stored digitally in each image file's EXIF.

If you want to print photos showing the date/time, some software including Zoombrowser EX can do that. In Zoombrowser, select the photos you want to print. In Step 2 (Printer & Layout Settings), in the bottom left, you can choose Date and/or Time and even the colour of the font.

Msg saying Zoombrower is in user by another user - to switch user


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive. Just make sure that you get one that's stated capable of reading your A40's CF card:

Camera won't work with vista


There are no drivers available to make the Canon PowerShot A30 work with Windows Vista. Your best bet is to get a CF card reader ($15 or less) with a USB connector and put your card from the camera into it. Windows Vista will recognize the card reader and the photos without any drivers.
