Testimonial: "Excellent Yes I did by that by accident but could not figure out what I did to get the 'Digital Zoom' row in the menu to become enabled again. "
Yes, you are probably right. A short within the camera could make it "un-startable. Take it to a local electronist or a Canon dealer and they will help you solve this problem. Also check if the batteries are good and fully charged. Some new batteries could be faulty from the factory.

Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.
