There might be compatibility issue. Try running the compatibility wizard in vista. You can start the wizard by typing compatibility wizard in windows Help and Support; it will display a link. Select your powershot software in the list of programs and choose XP in the compatibility mode.

It would be easier to get a card reader for about $10 or $15 at an electronics store. They hook right up and thee is less chance of damaging your cameras USB port.

Buy a USB card reader. You can get one that reads multiple formats (CF, SD, memory stick, etc) very inexpensively, usually less than $10. With the card reader, any current OS (Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X) can see all the pictures on the card -- you don't need to connect your camera to the computer at all.

When I bought camera I had Windows XP. New computer has Vista.


So you now have Vista, but the software will not load...

If you have Windows Vista (32-bit), click this link and download the "HP photosmart software and drivers" package. Install by directions.

If you have Vista 64-bit, use this link. Download the "HP photosmart software and drivers" package. Install by directions.

Zoom Browser cannot recognize my Canon Powershot G3


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:

Unable to install Lumix digital camera software using Vista


First do a clean uninstall with the Windows Installer Clean up utility, after you remove the programs from your add/remove menu.
Then try inserting the cd, and going to explore it manually, look for a setup file that says vista on it, try installing that way.

Hope this might jump start the fix, I don't have vista =S

Drivers for a canon s330 powershot


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

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

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

Some Canon camera is not Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.
