Re: Canon Powershot A530 is not detecting in my win XP...
The problem you are having with your camera is very simple. I hope you didnt listen to the last guys suggestion, Plug your camera into the USB port. Turn you camera on and then on the viewer side of the camera you will see a slide button the right upper side. It will have a picture of a red camera. Slide the button down to the blue picture and wulla you will download your pics.
Hope this helped!

Mentioned on my blog that the last paragraph of the advisory states:
""PowerShot A530 and A540 digital cameras affected by this phenomenon will be repaired free of charge, regardless of warranty status. Accordingly, if the opening/closing spring on the inside of the battery cover of your PowerShot A530 or A540 digital camera sticks out, please do not use the camera. Instead, please contact a Canon call center (1-800-OK-CANON) at your earliest convenience."
But also mentioned that if they don't help, a temporary fix is to insulate the spring from the battery contact plate. Merely place a small piece of tape between the portion of spring that's sticking out and the metal battery contact plate.
