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.

Try doing this direct transfer in your computer
1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera.
2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power. The camera and computer will be able to communicate.
3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow]
4. Download the images. * Download the images using the camera or the computer. * By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder.
** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another.** Issue on the operating system compatibility.
Most Compact cameras come with a software disk that has the photo software pre-loaded. My experience is that once you have loaded the software and uploaded your pictures, you can then convert the file to XP, or better still, to Photoshop.
When connecting a digital camera to your computer with the usb connector, then turning it on the memory card in the camera becomes a removable drive under My Computer and will also bring up a dialogue window that will ask if you want to import pictures, etc. There is no need for a driver.

There are no known free downloads. If you know anyone who has a Canon camera, you can use their disk. You do not need to have the software to connect to your computer and download. You can use the default scanner and camera wizard to download. If you are unable to do this, check the Canon website drivers and download section for your model to see if there are any driver updates for your Operating System. However if this is not a connection issue and you just want to have the software, you should try calling Canon to order the disk for under $20, I believe. Then you will be able to update the software from www.powershot.com once you have the original version.
You are able to connect the camera and download without the software as long as the driver is there. Try going to www.powershot.com to download the latest driver update for your camera and your operating system.
You can use a cardreader, available for purchase at any electronics store for around $12.
The bundled software that came with camera may not be compatible with this camera on that OS, but you can still connect to the computer and download via microsoft scanner and camera wizard assuming that your computer is running all of the necessary services. If you need further troubleshooting help, please just ask and I will attempt to get you going...
