Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP

ZoomBrowser says "Cannot detect camera", but there is a sound when I connect it to my computer. I have ZoomBrowser v6.1.

Amazingly enough, it works fine on my work PC which also runs on WinXP.

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.

I receive a "communication error"


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

If you got the Cable and Software CD, you can try to Uninstall the Software and then Install it again, as it may be some software/Dirver fault.
