You don't need any software.


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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Buy a card reader for cheap and download photos using card reader. Remove SD card from camera and insert into card reader, then hookup card reader to computer through USB port. Try Picasa3 free software from Google to download images. Works great and all is inexpensive

SOURCE: How to download videos from my camera to my computer

Dear Dcarres,
To start with, please install the software that came along with the camera.. ones the installation is successfully completed, Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable provided along with the camera and the computer should automatically detect the camera and launch the software.
Even if the computer doesn't launch the software.. you can go to "My computer" and you should be able to find a new drive letter along with your C,D and CD drive..
Double click on the new drive letter and go through the folders, you should be able to find the images in there.. Copy those images from that drive and paste them in "My Documents --> My pictures" or to any other location.
Once copy is done, left click on the green arrow icon in the system trey, next to time and select option "Safely remove the device" .. now you can unplug the camera.

Please let me know if that helps.

Regards,
Srinivas

My camera canon a630 is not identified by my computer


Do you have the SD card in it ? the computer really doesn;t see the camera it see's the card in the camera, this is if you have windows vista, 7, or 8, because these windows have a driver in windows, that's why if you go to the cannon website and go to support and look for download driver, there is no driver. But you should try some of the software they have for your camera. Image browser for windows is great, if you have windows, you didn't say, you really should post what OS you have when asking this kind of question.

Here is the cannon website, some nice software for you.

Make sure you pick the windows version you have.

One of the best cameras.

I own a Canon Power Shot A610. I cannot download my pictures into my new HP laptop after downloading the Installation disc. Is that because my computer operates with Microsoft VISTA, unlike my previous...


According to Microsoft's Vista Compatibility site, they have a driver to download that will ensure your camera is compatible with your OS. I'd try installing that, then restarting your computer and try the download again.

Out of focus pictures


Try allowing the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.  Wait for a beep then press the rest of the way to take the picture.  This should result in much sharper images.  If this helps please rate my solution.
