Hi I have a Canon A460 which has worked fine. My problem is with the transfer of images to the computer. I get either a message saying camera not found or I get a message saying camera detected with a box underneath where I would expect to see zoombrowser or another software to launch the action. The box is empty so I can't select anything. This has only just happened recently. Probably around the time I installed a Canon MP270 printer/scanner (which is a pig to use). Thanks Pat
