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.

Windows7 usually use x64 bit system operation, drivers which run in windows XP or Vista can be uninstallable in Windows 7 because XP and Vista use x32 bit system operation (except certain series).
See your OS from Device Manager (Windows+PauseBreak > Device Manager), 32 bit or 64 bit. Then you can download the driver compatible with your OS from here :

I have Canon 2S IS camera , changed OS to Vista


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.

Having recently wiped my hardrive and re-installed XP as my OS, I find that my Powershot A410 wont download to my PC. I've reintalled the Camera Solutions disc and followed the manual's instructions, but something is missing. The camera is recognised but following through 'Camera window' route I just get the cursor symbol with the angled arrow.

You will need to download and install the Vista driver for your camera. It should be available at the manufacturers website under the support link. Hope this helps.

Problems with the USB hub on P5GD2, running Vista


So you mean that you change your OS from XP to Vista? Yeah it really wont work normal because the driver that you installed is not for VISTA compatible drivers. ANd also you cannot force to install an XP driver to a Vista OS. Try to look to google that MBR of your and find some compatible driver for your VISTA.
