Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera ?

Lost solutions disk for A470. where can i download one , I had to format my hard drive and need the disk.


Answers :

You don't need any software to use your camera.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

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
