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.

Cant download photos off SD card. When I try to download photo's it says communication error. My son has the same camera - older version. Tried my SD card in his camera and still couldn't download...

First check the tab on the card, you might have just accidentally pressed the tab. It makes it 'read only' kind of like the old floppy disk (A disks for computers). If this doesn't solve it your pictures are gonners.

You can reformat and it should be good as new. If that doesn't allow it, then its your SD card being corrupted.

Your camera has Secure Digital/MMC card storage. Take out the SD storage card, and place it in an external card reader or USB SD card reader. This way you do not need to have any software installed for your camera. The SD card will read as a storage drive, and you can copy-paste the entire picture folder to your desktop picture folder (the folder is called DCIM)

If you need software or drivers, the Canbon website has them---
Copy-paste this link to your browser;

It's a 14mb file

If you plug in your camera via USB to any computer, you should be able to access the card in the camera and transfer the files to the MY PICTURES location. You can also download Picasa which will do the same thing.

If you must use the software that came with the camera here is the site:

Check on the CD software you received with your camera whether it support the Win Xp OS. In case it doesn't support your OS, go to the Canon web site and download to your PC the relevant drivers for your camera and OS. Good luck !
