My question is - did you checked that the drivers you get with THE camera are supporting your PC OS ?

Asus Computer doesnt recognize my Canon power shot 300 I have windows 7

Don't forget to install the Canon software that came with the camera. If you lost the camera, try the Canon website I managed to get the newest software for Windows 7 last week. Works fine.
Before your computer can work with any camera, you need drivers and some management software. Canons software is called ZoomBrowser EX. (also needed, when you want to manage pictures from a external card reader)

I've lost the installation CD ROM for my Canon 400D SLR. I now have a new laptop and want to download pictures from my camera to my laptop. My camera has a small problem whereby I can't release my SD from...

What you can actually do is download the Zoombrowser which you can use to transfer the pictures in your camera on to a computer. The link to where to download the software is below. Once you're in the website, just choose your computer's operating system (XP, Vista Windows 7, Mac, etc.) then download the zoombrowser. There are other softwares for your camera on the said site which you might want to download as well.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??

Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 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.

Canon zoombrowser ex ver 6.4.1 with windows 7

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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Canon PowerShot S3 IS & Windows 7

This is correct. The S3 is discovered by windows 7 and will allow download of pictures by Windows Picture download. The Canon Utilities software - Zoombrowser - will not work with windows 7 as the software cannot detect the Camera via Windows 7.. Also, Camera window will not start, if using the PC/laptop for remote image recording. If you virtualise XP within Windows 7 this still will not work. The only solution at the moment, if you are deperate, like I was (as I use the Remote Capture process a lot), is to either stick with Win Xp or Dual boot XP on a smaller partition.

I can't upload pictures from my SD850 to XP

I had same problem: ZoomBrowser had been working fine on XP sp2, but today I found it could no longer detect the camera. My guess is some operating system patch caused it to stop working. I finally got it working again by doing the following:

1) Go to http://software.canon-europe.com/ , select Powershot G1 as the product, and get the list of available updates.

2) Download and install the latest version of ZoomBrowser (6.0.1).

3) Download and (re-)install the USB driver ( Canon Digital Camera WIA Driver 3.9.1). It will probably tell you it's already installed, but continue with the install anyway. It will also warn you that the driver isn't certified for XP, but ignore that and continue.

4) Reconnect the camera to the USB port on the computer and put it into upload mode. *Now* a window should pop up with a selection of programs you can launch, including ZoomBrowser. Yay!

Hope this helps.

How can i use the camera as a webcam?

I heavily researched this myself, and came to the conclusion that it's not easily done, it's overkill, and it's not really worth the effort. Instead went on Amazon and got the following very nice webcam for 8 bucks including S&H. If you do the same, make sure you follow the advice given in the user reviews to install downloaded/driver software for the camera.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P9T5SO
The reason the camera is so cheap is that it is open-package store returns due to defective driver software. The camera is actually high quality, and just needs updated drivers which you can easily download as the reviews state and show how.

Dowloading software

You may download Canon software from here.

Bear in mind that you don't really need the Canon software. 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.
