Answers :

\015\012This type of question comes up several times a day here at Fixya. Unfortunately, Canon does not offer replacement software disks. You can search eBay for a replacement disk, but would instead recommend that you please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.
