I don't think you need the disk, this is a hardware connection issue, not a sofware issue so we can take some troubleshooting steps to try to get your images downloaded. I will just need a bit more information from you.

    I just really wanted to know which operating system you were using, but these steps below should help you. If they don't, feel free to ask me for help again, I may have some more steps for you to take.

    Here are the steps to take.

    1. Establish whether or not you have a connection between your camera/computer by going to your start button, control panel, system, hardware tab and device manager. The camera must be powered on and in playback mode (should automatically go to playback mode when connected, camera's screen should go black if there is a connection). Make sure you have a fully or nearly fully charged battery in your camera.

    2. Once in device manager, look under Imaging Devices. If your camera is properly connected it should show up as Canon Powershot SD800. If it shows a yellow exclamation point, there is a driver issue, and even if it doesn't show a yellow exclamation point, you may want to update your driver anyway by right clicking and having the system search automatically for driver updates. If download of driver begins, great...once finished, restart camera and your problem may be resolved.

    3. If there are any other imaging devices, you may have to temporarily disable them to avoid conflicts.

    4. If you have any other imaging software running, exit or close the program in your system tray (down by your clock in the right hand corner of your computer's desktop.

    5. Try again to connect.

    6. If you are on a desktop, try a rear usb port vs. a front port. You can also try a different port on a laptop. After each change, try restarting camera to establish connection.

    7. Go to start/My Computer and look for the icon for your camera...you will be able to download images even without Canon software loaded onto computer so this is not a software issue if you have no hardware connection. If you see the icon, right click on it and choose Get or Import pictures. From there the default Microsoft scanner and camera wizard should launch and you will be able to import your images.

    8. If still no connection, try going to Start/Run and type in services.msc here you are looking for 4 services to be running. Check under status of each service and make sure it reads that each of these services are started.


    • Canon Camera Access Library 8 (if Canon software loaded)
    • SSDP discovery service
    • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
    • Windows Image Acquisition
    Once all of these services are started on your computer, restart camera once again. If any of the last three services are not on your computer or are not started, connecting will be a problem.

    If all of these steps fail, try purchasing an SD card reader from your local electronics store for around $12 and download images from there. Canon also offers lifetime technical support for your Powershot, so give them a call if none of these steps work or if you would like someone to walk you through it.

    Best of luck to you!

Seem like you PC don't recognised your camera. Have you install the camera driver ? the driver CD usually come with the camera package. If you already install the driver but you get this problem, re-install proper driver until complete/success to make your PC recognize your camera.

Hope this help and if this helpful RATE please.

Can i download software from computer....lost install cd??


If you are asking if it is possible to somehow copy an installed software application of a computer so as to use it on another without the install CD - yes and no.

It may be possible to copy the directory that holds the software onto a disc and simply paste it onto another computer. However depending on the software there may be a whole host of things it installed all throughout your computer that are required for it to work, such as registry entries, drivers, other programs etc.

Only way to know is to try.

Many companies will also replace an install disk for a reduced price vs. new software.

Cannot load software cd that came with camera


If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is finished, unplug the USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon device may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.
