Question about Canon Digital Cameras
The following is generic in nature, and not specific to your particular camera:
When you connect the camera to the computer, check in the system properties to see if the computer at least knows a new device is connected.
If you see an indication with a question mark and a yellow explation mark or a question mark, disconnect the camera, and then uninstal the unknown device in the system properties.
Then make sure that you first install the camera software before connecting the camera. With some some softwares, the camera must be connected during the installation. It will tell you when to connect the camera. With most, the camera is connected after the installation is complete.
If you connect the camera before installing the software, and the software design does not recomend this, then there will be driver issues when installing the software afterwords. The process to fix this is as I decribed about removing the unknown device, uninstalling, and then re-installing.
