Does Canon have a problem with their software? When I try to download photos the camera is recognized by the software but then the window does not provide software available to download, even though I have downloaded tons of photos prior to this problem. The computer was sent to the shop and the Canon software was uninstalled and then reinstalled. The tech cleaned up some other issues, but is at a loss to figure out why the software will not download photos. We have spent litteraly hours on this

My computer (windows 7 (64 bit) recognizes the camera but when the utility software opens all but one of the options is not grayed out.

Hi there, My laptop is suddenly unable to detect the camera, canon lxus 90ls, I have reinstalled the software and also tried a different lead but to no avail. The camera does know the lead is in place as the lens remains stationery when switched on, however I only see the last picture taken on the screen, not the pc connect sign. I have tried going through start/programmes/ window (s) etc, but it is saying the camera is not there. I am totally at a loss. Thankyou.

I dropped my canon rebel xsi from about 7feet, but it still took pictures after i checked it. nothing cracked, not the lense, or the screen. but than about an hour later, when i tried taking pictures it said error 99. i took of the lense and tried cleaning it inside, and when i put it back on it still said error 99. it says shooting is not possible. turn the power switch to off and on again, or reinstall the battery. i did those, but the error 99 keeps poping up. i dont know what to do?

Downloading Pics I'm having the same problem...all of my pics downloaded just fine the first time. Now when I try downloading I keep getting "No camera found" error box even though I know it's there. I've tried everything except uninstalling and reinstalling ZoomBrowser Ex because I don't know if I would lose my pictures. Did you ever find a solution to the problem? I think it's a software problem because it's mentioned in their troubleshooting user guide. but they don't really give a sure fix.

My Canon Powershot G3 will not respond. When I turn it on a get a rapidly flashing green light on the back, and when I try to connect I get the message on the computer that there is no supporting software.

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so).

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate
