Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
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.
