Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
Consider 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 such as Picasa.

I am not sure about this matter but it seems there is a problem with your new computer. it might not recognize the usb cable.
try to plug your camera in another USB port and try again.

I believe there are 2 modes of usb transfer that you can pick in the camera. They are set somewhere in the menu in the options. If you go through the menus thoroughly you'll find it. One option is for connecting the camera directly to a printer and the other is for computer transfer (there might also be an Auto setting but I don't remember for sure). Make sure that setting is set for computer transfer. If that doesn't fix your problem, re-install or update EOS Utility / ZoomBrowser.

SOURCE: My XT will not connect to Vista.
I had same problem. I tried the Canon customer support and got similar advice Muhammed gave, along with several additional steps to try. None of them worked. The only thing that worked was the above suggestion of setting the camera itself to the PTP for the communication setting of the menu.
It's too bad you have do do this work around, it does not allow for the same level of control as the pc communication setting.

To find out if the computer recognizes the camera, go to start>computer and see if the camera is listed. If it is, you can double click the icon to open it. Double click on the folder(s) until you get to the pictures. Click on the first picture, scroll down to the last picture and while holding down the shift key click on the last picture. Now right click on the pictures and you will get a menu. In Vista you can select copy or move them to a folder. In XP you will have to select send to>documents then move them to a folder. As for the program you installed, if it didn't leave a short on your desktop, go to start>all programs and look for it. If it's not there, it probably didn't install correctly.
