    Have you considered NOT connecting the camear to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Having gone six months without a response, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

I have a Canon PowerShot A20, but I can't find the W7 driver . Could you help me ? Regards rene


There is no Windows 7 Driver available for this model.

Your computer should still pick it up as an external drive in Windows Explorer so you should still be able to copy your photos to your hard drive from their.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

My Window 7 can not detect my PowerShot SD800 IS from USB. I can not using Canon software detect camera


Thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

I am not sure if you have attempted to run Canon's most current driver update for the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS, but here is the link for that driver.

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Drivers for Windows 7

This driver is for Windows 7, 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

What you may want to try first, is to disconnect your camera from your PC, install this driver update and then connect the PowerShot and see if it will detect it.

Driver updates are usually the first steps to take in troubleshooting device connection issues with PCs.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Canon Powershot A20 compatible with Vista?


Canon did not update their drivers for many of their cameras under the Vista OS. In order to download photos, you'll need to do the following. Sorry, but it's the only way:

I spent a lot of time and effort researching the internet trying to find the software and driver for my daughters Canon PowerShot A20 camera! I AM NOT an expert on the computer, but I am also not a novice! I did not appreciate being put on hold for an extended length of time while AvioriX was trying to interface me with evidenly a number of other people who also had problems. YES, I solved the problem myself, and I no longer need help!

Cannon a20 digital camera


Go to this page, and select "Drivers and Dwonlaods" tab. Wait 20 seconds, then select Windows XP. Then download your driver.

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8283#DownloadDetailAct

If the camera still doesn't download with the driver, then next recommend using a compact flash card reader instead to download your photos (been using one for years, and highly recommend it instead of downloading directly from the camera).
