The IXUS V3 was the PowerShot S230 in the USA. You can download drivers and manuals here.

    What version of Windows are you using? If you have Windows Vista, there are no drivers for the IXUS V3 available for that OS. But you should be able to find a card reader at a very reasonable price which you can insert your CF card into, and Windows Vista will be able to see your photos that way.

    Drivers are available for all Windows versions from Windows 98 through Windows XP. Click on the driver link from the download page to download, then follow directions to install the driver on your computer. Do this before you connect the camera.

    Unfortunately, the software program ZoomBrowser is not available for download (only upgrades are available, but you have to have the program already installed to use the upgrade). So you would have to use some other graphic editing program to load your images on the computer if you do not have your original installation CD.

IXUS 500 LCD screen has gone black.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

I cant download video files from my Canon IXUS 850 IS

Use a separate card reader to transfer the video to a folder you create on your desktop. Try using Quicktime to open it.

Need drivers for a canon powershot s330

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

Official Canon Drivers and Software


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

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

Installing cd for camera

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.
