Canon PowerShot A40

I have uninstalled and re-installed many times and you can hear the camera being accepted by the computer but the same message comes up.

If you have a Vista, it is not compatible. It will not download the Zoom browser. I had to purchase a Memory card reader/writer to download pics on my laptop from my camera and by passing the printer.

How can I load pictures from my Powershot A40 to my computer with Windows 10?


Two ways.

Connecting to the computer via the lead, you should open Windows File Explorer and you will see the storage in the camera as a removable storage

or

you go to the Canon website and get all the software including the download software and add-ons. The Win 7 software should be good on Win 10 and includes ZoomBrowser and PhotoStitch.

Canon Powershot A20: One Compact flash card works fine and I'm able to download the pictures. The other card (which was used in a Canon A40) is not recognised by the computer, although you can review the...


about the cards their models must be not same that's why you don't get the soft copy of other pics on your computer ..or

For those of you with a Canon camera of the above models; there is a firmware release that will make the autofocus work a bit better.
Here are the links (a40,a30,a20,a10)
http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA40/PSA40_Adjustment-e.html

http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA20/PSA20_Adjustment-e.html
http://www.canon.co.jp/Imaging/PSA10/PSA10_Adjustment-e.html

It mainly fixes the soft-focus problem with the second to last telephoto setting:
In case you haven't seen this problem, take an A40 and zoom to the furthest optical setting (3x). Take a pcture; preferably something a dozen meters away or so. Then just touch the button lightly to zoom back one step (there are 7 zoom settings in total if I recall; maybe only 6); and take the same photo. When you compare these the soft setting of the second photo should be apparent.

The firmware went smoothly for me and is fairly simple to do.


Hope this helps someone.

My OS is Vista. I have updated my Zoom Browser software. I was not able to download pictures from my Powershot A40.


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.

Cannot download pictures using zoom browser ex with my camera Canon SD450 in my Wwindows Vista laptop. Laptop doesn't open automatically the download window as in with XP. Also, I cannot open Canon Camera...


Camera direct to computer connections are notoriously problematic. (Lousy with bugs etc.) I avoid the problem entirely by using a card reader ($15-20) combined with Picasa3 (free software from Google). Remove card from camera and insert into card reader, connect to computer via USB and download images with Picasa3. Works great and is relatively cheap.

Software Powershot A400


Ouch. The ONLY "official" solution I could find was this: "If you have lost youroriginal Solution Disk, you can purchase a replacement by calling Canon Photo/Video Spare Parts."

OTOH, I did find this file:
http://menterprise.net/guest/apps/zoombrowser/zoombrsr22.exe

== Be careful downloading files. Scan it with virus-scan before opening and installing. ==

BTW, updaters for some versions of the Zoom Browser can be found at: usa.canon.com.
