Camera will not connect to computer. Message says registry is damaged or incomplete. Has always worked before


Answers :

Wire your camera to your computer using the usb wire that came with the camera. Then reinsert the disk that came with the camera, into the computer drive. if you no longer have that disk, called a driver, go to canon.com/drivers and locate it as a free download. Download and run the disk then you will be fine once again. regards, Joe
