Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot SD600 Connectivity/Recognition Problem

Help! I've had a Canon Powershot SD600 for about 6 months, and it has worked absolutley fine on my Dell Inspiron 6000 with Windows XP Home Edition. Today, I tried to connect it and instead of the normal device connect tone, I got three quick tones, and then my computer said it couldn't recognize the camera, and that "there was a problem during installation, and my device might not work properly". I couldn't get it to work, so I called Canon tech support, with no luck. They said there might be a conflict with my Dell printer, but they have been working up until today. I looked under "device manager", and it shows the camera with a yellow exclamation point. I disconnected my printer and re-connected it, and the printer showed the same exclamation point, but then still printed when I tried it. So, I tried uninstalling my Canon software, and re-installing it with no luck. Then I tried doing an upgrade install of Windows XP with no luck. I then tried to download a new driver under the device manager with no luck. Last week, I think I may have got some spyware on my computer recently, as I keep getting a message that my "current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded" followed sometimes by a pop-up for a search engine or something similar. I also keep getting a "this file needs to close" message for the program "attrib.exe". Not being a computer genius, I deleted "attrib.exe" and realized today when looking for an answer that I may have deleted something important. Could this be related to the problems I am having with my camera? Canon said that I could buy a card reader, but I want to try to get my computer to recognize my camera again. Help please! I am utterly lost and don't want to pay Dell a huge chunk of money for tech support unless I really have to! Any or all advice would be most welcome! Thank you!

    I reinstalled the driver. Win2000 did not have this exact model, so I selected another Canon camera that sort of looked similar. So far this has not worked very well.

You probably have too many unused devices in your computer, reboot in safe mode, and delete unused device from system devices. Not enough space here for a longwinded howto, but plenty of info on how to do this on the web. gurantee it will fix it

No xp cd how can i reintall xp on dell inspiron 6000 using the product key on it


You can download a copy of a dell windows disc from a torrent site, and use your key.
I found 1 for you, you will need a torrent client, i use Utorrent, you can also use limewire.
It says this on the file...
This is a dell xp home iso slipstreamed with sp3. It can be used to install windows on dell machines with the oem sticker and activate without problems. You can also use it to run repair installs on them without loosing all updates prior to sp3.
Just OPEN the file with your torrent program and let it download, it will be in an ISO file, Just burn it to a disc as an image, Use IMGBURN, its free

OUCH... Might need a new harddrive or motherboard. Does it even let you go into the bios? Maybe you can do a full reinstall to save you the dough.

If you check Dell's support site for your model you'll find the XP / Vista drivers. Just download and install and it will work with Win 7.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Possess dell inspiron 6000 centino wireless, need drivers and xp


You can contact Dell Technical Support and see if they will send you a new XP CD. All the drivers can be downloaded at Support.dell.com for that system. If you can't get Dell to replace the CD, try Ebay. Here is an Example:

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop won't boot up


Hi,
Pleae reboot your system and when you see the Dell logo , press the F12 key a couple of times .
In the menu, select only HDD diagnostics and post the results back . If the harddrive fails, then the only solution would be to replace the same. If the hardrive passes , we may be able tp fix the system

Thanks

For Laptops, Dell places the sticker with the product key on the bottom. It will be 5 sets of 5 letters and numbers, separated by a "-".
