Re: still not working?
OK I would like to continue to troubleshoot. If you are on a desktop computer, make sure your USB cord is connected in a rear port so you have the best power. Make sure battery in camera is fully charged.
Next, turn the camera into playback mode so you can see the pictures on the card, then connect to cord.
Click on start/run and type in services.msc and hit ok.
Check for SSDP discovery service. Right click on this and restart (or start) so that it shows started under status.
Check for Universal Plug and Play Device host, do the same thing here.
Check for windows image acquisition and repeat as above.
Then close services and restart camera. If nothing happens automatically,
Next, go to start/control panel/system/hardware tab and device manager. Under imaging devices look for your camera. If there are any other imaging devices, disable them for now.
If your camera is there with no yellow symbols next to it, close device manager and go to my computer. There, you should see your camera and be able to right click on it and get pictures through microsoft scanner and camera wizard. If this still doesnt' solve it, I have more ideas.

This device works as a Plug and Play device on some machines and does not on some. What this means is that in some cases, all you need to do is to connect your camera to the computer and it would detect the memory card as an external device and you can copy out whatever information you want from the memory card. In this case, you might need to install the pc suite for this camera or download the drivers alone and it should work properly. Follow the links below to obtain the drivers and the pc suite. Device software Please be sure to read all the information on the page clearly so as to avoid any errors.
It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive. Just make sure you get one that's stated capable of reading your S200's CF card.: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/01/how-do-i-download-photos-or-pictures.html
A friend suggested I uninstall the digital camera solution disk and then reinstall it. I did so and although my computer seemed to crash once it was restarted after turning it off and back on and getting a blue screen from microsoft stating I had to start it manually everything worked out. I am so thankful. I got about 100 pictures downloaded and stored into the appropriate album. Thank you for your concern.
What Operating system is your Lappie?
If it is XP or 2000 no driver required.
Best advice is to remove the camera soft ware from the computer.
Plug the camera in and Windows will detect it as a new drive in My Computer.
The best advice for software supplied with cameras is -
Leave it in the Box and let WINDOWS DO THE WORK
Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.
But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.
You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.
I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.
