You don't need to install anything.


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

If your reason for wanting the software is to download pics, just get a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can view the pics or open them in iphoto.

  2. Place the Kodak EasyShare software CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  3. Install the software:
    spacer.gif Windows OS-based computer-if the install window does not appear, choose Run from the Start menu and type d:\setup.exe where d is the drive letter that contains the CD.
    Mac OS X-double-click the CD icon on the desktop, then click the Install icon.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the software.
    spacer.gif Windows OS-based computer-select Complete to automatically install the most commonly used applications. Select Custom to choose the applications you wish to install.
    Mac OS X-follow the on-screen instructions.

Find cd software download for canon powershot SD1000 I lost my original cd


Which operating system do you have? Windows? mac? if it is windows which version? You should not need a lot of software to use the camera as you should be able to connect the camera and see the pictures (mac os 10.4 and windows XP/vista)
You can try going here to see if any of the software will help you:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=224&modelid=14901#DownloadDetailAct

You will have to select your operating system before it will show you any software otherwise you will only get the manuals.
Hope that helps

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Professional/Me/XP
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable
 

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.

Problem installing Nikon View - "Locale does not match" error


When the Nikon installer runs it checks for certain files before performing the update. If it cannot find the require files it displays the "...locale does not match..." error. Verify the following if you experience this problem: Be sure that both the original Nikon View install and the new Nikon View/Capture Updater were both downloaded from the Nikon USA web site. There are known issues when two different regions are used for downloading the software. If either were downloaded from the incorrect web site re-download from the Nikon USA Technical KDB Download Page. http://www.nikonusa.com/software Verify that the installation was run while booted into Mac OS X. You CAN NOT install while booted into OS 9 and simply copy the application to the OS X "Applications" folder. Use the "System Preferences" (OS X) or "Control Panels" (OS 9) and "Startup Disk" to start up in OS X and then install Nikon View and Capture and then after restarting run the combined updater.
