Dear Ex-boy:

Depending on your camera model and your computer's operating system you may not need a Canon software disc at all. All you may need is to download the drivers that might go with your combination of camera and OS, These drivers are available at the website, under the drivers and downloads tab of your camera's web page.

From the homepage click on the "Download Library" link next to the large Canon Logo in the upper left hand corner and enter into the three drop down menus 1) digital cameras 2) Your camera's series such as "S Series cameras" for say an S5 IS, and 3) your camera model. Then click Go.

You will then land on your camera's web page with the default drivers and downloads being displayed. Enter you Operating System of your PC in the drop down menu, and when the page refreshes, you will see all available downloads for your camera. If there is a driver required for your OS it will be listed and you can download and install it. That's all that would be REQUIRED for a camera connection to be made. If no driver is required then one will not be listed andyour camera will simply be detected upon connecting it to your PC.

If you would like to have the Canon CD however, simply call Canon at 1-800-828-4040. You can purchase one at a nominal cost.

Hope this helps.

Installing to computer

Jennie, with your camera came a CD. On that CD is the software you need to install on the computer, before you can connect the camera to the computer. On the CD are also drivers, for every type of computer. If you don't have the CD, sometimes after registering the camera online you can download the software. If nothing works, you always can use an external card reader end put the memory card in that. For a card reader you (most of the time) don't need any software, because most operating systems have drivers for the card readers.

You can buy an external CD drive that connects to your computer via USB and use it to install from your CD. It may be cheaper and quicker to do that it is to take the computer to get repaired.

How to download program to put pics from the camera on the computer

A digital camera driver allows the camera to communicate with a computer's operating system. Drivers can either be installed to your computer from the Nikon software CD or downloaded from "Digital camera driver download-Windows " Article.
Drivers are installed automatically when the Nikon software is installed. If you have previously installed Nikon software and you have the original CD and want to re-install digital camera drivers.
