    I have the same problem and after going to the Canon site it indicated that the S45 is not compatible with Windows Vista. Does anyone know any way around this?

You can use a cardreader, available for purchase at any electronics store for around $12.

The bundled software that came with camera may not be compatible with this camera on that OS, but you can still connect to the computer and download via microsoft scanner and camera wizard assuming that your computer is running all of the necessary services. If you need further troubleshooting help, please just ask and I will attempt to get you going...

Hope this helps!

I just installed the camera software on a new PC running Windows 7. It seems to have installed properly, but the software does not recognize the camera. I get a "Camer not recognized" error.


http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010371.asp
get here and download and install all related software with windows7 ..cause in the software you installed the driver is not present..and this is the reason that the camera is not recognized
also ..if you have the driver disk ..and it has the driver for windows 7 (or for vista on 32 at least ..) insert the disk ..and the camera ..and go to control panel and run the add new hardware wizard..and try to let it find the driver automatically from the disk ..
if it do not find the driver .install all related software from the support site I linked you ..cause it is not specified which one contains the driver and which not ..but I assume that the ones that are made for browsing photos .have the driver inside..

Bet you have Vista on your new computer. If so, it's a Windows Vista issue. Go to Canon's website and get and install the updated drivers for your camera. Here's the link (select Drivers and Download, then select Windows Vista, then look for, download, and install the driver for Windows Vista.

My Driver-Cd of a Canon Camera isnt recognized.


I also have a 40D.

I'm not sure the driver is compatible with Vista..Try downloading it straight from Canon's site, that's your best bet.

Microsoft has a habit of screwing people over and not caring about it

When you insert the cd, goto start;run; then type your CD Drive, which I think is D:/ or E:/ on vista. See if you can manually start the autorun.

You could also save the folder and send it to yourself in an email and DL it like that.

You need to install the correct software on your computer. They are usually called drivers. Here is a link to the Canon Rebel Xt page from Canon with all sorts of goodies you can download. The most important section to get things going for you is the drivers. Select your OS from the drop down list, download and install. If you don't have drivers your PC or Mac doesnt recognize the fine piece of hardware... your camera. Hit me up if you're still stuck.

Cannot find a driver for Canon PowerShot S45 for Windows Vista


When connecting a digital camera to your computer with the usb connector, then turning it on the memory card in the camera becomes a removable drive under My Computer and will also bring up a dialogue window that will ask if you want to import pictures, etc. There is no need for a driver.

Computer doesn't recognize camera


Remove previous all installation/ file if any. Insert the Driver CD in the CD ROM again a wizard interface would be active, from that wizard complete the installation by clicking Next - Next. Do not plug the camera before fresh installation complete. If wizard ask to plug your camera, then plug it.

My XT will not connect to Vista.


Well, that worked perfectly. Turn on your Rebel XT camera and under Menu then Tools go to Communication and set it to Print/PTP. Thank you to all you very smart people!
