Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Canon Powershot A300 on XP

\015 I have operating system Windows XP and my Canon powershot A300 won't install. It is not recognized in the USB port and I've downloaded drivers but and installed the program. But when I run them, it says driver update failed. When I reinstall the driver it tells me that I already installed it (duh) and it doesn't need to be installed again. So I run it and it then tells me installation was interupted and it cannot finish the installation.\015

Answers :

Its best start again, completely remove the current drivers you have installed and do a restart.

\015\012Now shutdown the PC and plug the camera to your PCs using the USB lead and turn the camera on & set to USB mode. Start your PC and login as usual - XP should pick up your camera automatically.

\015\012If it still doesnt pick it up you might want to update XP to atleast SP2 or try another USB lead.

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)
