Unless you REALLY must use Zoombrowser for some reason, why not simply 'read' the SD/CF Card direct on your PC ?

(you can buy a USB multi-media card/reader writer for less than £10 ...)

Canon PowerShot S3 IS & Windows 7


This is correct. The S3 is discovered by windows 7 and will allow download of pictures by Windows Picture download. The Canon Utilities software - Zoombrowser - will not work with windows 7 as the software cannot detect the Camera via Windows 7.. Also, Camera window will not start, if using the PC/laptop for remote image recording. If you virtualise XP within Windows 7 this still will not work. The only solution at the moment, if you are deperate, like I was (as I use the Remote Capture process a lot), is to either stick with Win Xp or Dual boot XP on a smaller partition.

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:

Windows Vista can't find my camera. This is a new problem as it worked fine last winter.My old computer with Windows XP has no problem. Control Panel - Scanners and cameras shows the Canon A80.


Canon did not update the drivers for many of its older cameras for the Vista OS, the A80 included. In other words, you cannot directly download from the A80 using Vista. Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as an alternative and much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos.

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP


I had same problem: ZoomBrowser had been working fine on XP sp2, but today I found it could no longer detect the camera. My guess is some operating system patch caused it to stop working. I finally got it working again by doing the following:

1) Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ , select Powershot G1 as the product, and get the list of available updates.

2) Download and install the latest version of ZoomBrowser (6.0.1).

3) Download and (re-)install the USB driver ( Canon Digital Camera WIA Driver 3.9.1). It will probably tell you it's already installed, but continue with the install anyway. It will also warn you that the driver isn't certified for XP, but ignore that and continue.

4) Reconnect the camera to the USB port on the computer and put it into upload mode. *Now* a window should pop up with a selection of programs you can launch, including ZoomBrowser. Yay!

Hope this helps.

Canon Powershot A80 NO CAMERA FOUND message when downloading.


I know this issue occurred with me when I had a service not running for WinXP OS. If you are using WinXP, check for this service, start it before connecting the camera and switching it on. Canon Camera Access Library 8
