I had previously tried on my laptop when I first got it (the camera) and it wouldn't recognized the camera but I was using my laptop the other day and out of the blue there it was under My Computer?!!!

    I was uploading photos to my computer when all of a sudden there was an "error" and now it appears as if the only buttons on the camera that work are the shutter button and the power button. I can't get my computer to recognize the camera nor can I get the camera to do anything but turn on and take a picture.

    Every time I press the on/off, when the camera is fully charged, button while on the picture taking and video mode the lens comes out but the screen doesn't come on, not allowing me to take pictures. Yet, when I put it on the display mode, the pictures that I took before show up with no problem.

Canon A1100is. All pics taken with zoom are out of focus. Pics taken at normal are fine.

I got the same problem. Pics with zoom > ~2.5 for distant targets are out of focus. Pics are normal for close targets (~ 2 m). The camera with zoom is a "short sight". Changing setting to 'infinity' could not solve the problem. I did not find solution yet. It seems a hardware problem. Anybody know how to fix?

Zoom and focus is slow on my canon, is there a firmware update for it?

Yes I believe there is a software update from Canon as i found several negative reviews , saying focus & zoom was very slow.
The only one I could find on was for the new Windows 7 .

I'm having problems with I focus the camera out. It becomes burrie

The camera has limited ability to zoom out. I believe you have a 3x optical zoom, and a 7 x digital zoom. Once you go beyond the optical zoom, the camera attempts to digitally render the zoom which can cause pixalation, or bluriness. This should never be an issue inside the optical zoom range as the image is going directly through the lens.
