Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have Windows XP - does Canon SD850IS 8 MP w/4X Optical work on my computer - I read in some of the specs that it only worked on Windows VISTA. If that is correct, which ELPH do you suggest I get for XP? I have a NIKON D50 SLR now but looking for one to carry in my purse every day - I'm always finding photo opportunities. Thanks - Nell

Powershot A470. used to be able to download pics with no prob to my computer. Got a new pc Samsung with windows 7 (RV510) but for some reason it cant download to my old pc either.. just seems its not...


Windows7 usually use x64 bit system operation, drivers which run in windows XP or Vista can be uninstallable in Windows 7 because XP and Vista use x32 bit system operation (except certain series).
See your OS from Device Manager (Windows+PauseBreak > Device Manager), 32 bit or 64 bit. Then you can download the driver compatible with your OS from here :

If this useful, RATE please !

Problems installing canon powershot in windows vista


It's doubtful you will find a driver for your camera to work with Windows Vista. Invest in an inexpensive ($10) card reader that can read CF cards and plugs into the USB port on your computer. As soon as you plug it in, Windows will be able to "see" all the photos on the card.

My computer is not reading the camera connection


You need to start the "Canon Camera Access Library 8" service. To do this (on XP, other Windows OSes are similar) you need to:
1. Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage"
2. Click the + sign in front of "Services and Applications"
3. Click on "Services"
4. Right-click on "Canon Camera Access Library 8" and select "Start"
