Having problems with your Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera ?

Windows won't recognise my cannon Powershot 1000IS

\015 When I plug my Canon Powershot 1000IS to the usb port and turn the camera on, I get the message that one of the devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows cannot recognize it. It worked a few weeks ago, even after we got a new mother board. My husband thinks that the new mother bard is the problem, but I'm pretty sure it has downloaded since we got it.\015

Like he said that u might have to update the software and you can always call for more info. But, I think the USB port has the issue. Make sure to look behind your computer for another USB import.
Have you downloaded the most recent software from Canon at their website? Sometimes the old software programs get wonky & can cause this issue. Canon is a great company with wonderful customer service, no matter how old or how pricy your camera/printer/etc. is. If nothing helps with the new software download, try contacting them through e-mail or phone & they'll get you back on track!
