Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Windows XP doesn't recognize my new Canon SD1100 camera even after loading software as instructed.

Answers :

It is very simple you guys! I had the same problem with my Windows XP SP3 and SOLVE IT EASY!

1. Unplug all your USB devices. If you have hubs, unplug only the devices attached to the hub, not the hub from the computer.

2. Open the registry and delete the following 6 branches.






3. Restart your computer and attach one by one your USB devices. If you have hubs, first let the OS to recognize your hubs, then attach the USB devices.

Your Digital Camera should be recognized immediately by the system. If you don't have your Digital Camera software installed you can use Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard to upload your photos.

Windows Vista!!! When I plug in my cord from the camera (Pentax Optio S5i) to my new laptop with Windows Vista I get a message saying it can't locate Pentax driver and this isn't supported by Pentax??? or something like that.  My camera is not that old.  Is there any way I can get my camera to work with Vista?  I can't even get it to recognize the camera when plugging it into the USB port so it's not a software issue.  HELP I do not want to have to buy a new camera!!!!

Polaroid digital camera i832 was working fine through USB cable. Received an Ipod shuffle for Mother's day, downloaded the software, loaded my Ipod and now my camera doesn't work. I'm think it's the Itunes software, because that's the only new thing that's been downloaded and the camera worked previously to that. The removable disk drive (F:) recognizes it, but wants me to "format disk". Under the device manager, disk drivers, there is a Maxtor 6Y080L0 listed and my camera. I don't think the Max

The maxtor is your computers hard drive- the computer will also see your ipod as a hard drive-leave everything alone and use a memory card reader to transfer pics from card to computer-no software plug n play ... Polaroid i832 Digital Camera
