Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Answers :

In order for Windows XP or Windows Vista to communicate directly with a digital camera, the camera must be PTP (picture transfer protocol) capable. This protocol was developed after the PowerShot S230 came out six years ago. Your best bet would be to get a CF card reader (only about $15 - $20) with a USB connector and use it to read the photos from the CF card.

Hi, I am in Rwanda trying to do a photo workshop with some kids.

No Sound I just got a new computer so I can burn home movies from my Samsung S630 to DVD. The computer recognizes the video, but not the sound. My camera works fine and the sound on the computer works fine except for when I try to play my videos. I've heard that I need codecs but don't know what type and where to get it. I don't have internet at home, so I'd need to burn the codec package to a CD and transfer it to my computer. Do you know what I need?
