I have a Canon PowerShot S2IS that gives me a black screen and a "change batteries" message even with new batteries. Is there a way to re-set or re-boot the camera?


Try cleaning the battery compartment contacts with a cotton swab "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. Also clean the battery contacts and the charging station the same way. Thanks, Dana

Is there a free download to make the Powershot S2is Vista compatible?


Sorry, Canon did not upload the drivers for the Vista OS for many of its cameras. But no matter, 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:

Canon PowerShot S2 IS


ASSUMING it worked just fine before AND you have made no changes to the PC software (Microsoft Update ? ) then it sounds like to bad cable .. however this does seem very unlikely ... see if you can check by borrowing a cable from a friend ... or take the Camera back to the shop where you bought it and ask them to help you by showing you how to download pics ...(do NOT pick a 'spotty youth' on a busy Saturday to do this .. look for older staff on a nice slow Tuesday afternoon to get more co-operation :-) )

Downloading to computer


Do you have anything that can read memory cards? Try taking the card out of the camera and connecting it directly to your computer using a memory card reader or even a different camera. If you do get this to work, get all the picture off of it, and then format the card. To format the card, right click it in My Computer, and select format. It should work in your camera again after this.
