Question about Canon PowerShot A40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a canon powershot A40. I've attached the camera via a USB port to my PC. I am trying to use Zoom Browser EX to import pictures to the PC, but am receiving a message that the camera does not work with Zoom Browser. It used to, so I don't know what could have changed. Any ideas? (I also have a Powershot A610 that works just fine with Zoom Browser.) Thanks

Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How can I load pictures from my Powershot A40 to my computer with Windows 10?


Two ways.

Connecting to the computer via the lead, you should open Windows File Explorer and you will see the storage in the camera as a removable storage

or

you go to the Canon website and get all the software including the download software and add-ons. The Win 7 software should be good on Win 10 and includes ZoomBrowser and PhotoStitch.

Cannot download pictures using zoom browser ex with my camera Canon SD450 in my Wwindows Vista laptop. Laptop doesn't open automatically the download window as in with XP. Also, I cannot open Canon Camera...


Camera direct to computer connections are notoriously problematic. (Lousy with bugs etc.) I avoid the problem entirely by using a card reader ($15-20) combined with Picasa3 (free software from Google). Remove card from camera and insert into card reader, connect to computer via USB and download images with Picasa3. Works great and is relatively cheap.

If you have a Vista, it is not compatible. It will not download the Zoom browser. I had to purchase a Memory card reader/writer to download pics on my laptop from my camera and by passing the printer.
