\015 I can't get the software Starter Guide to open so I can take my photos off my camers. I've done everything mentioned in the book and it still won't open. Any help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Answers :

Very simple. you need to get an SD card reader from your local electronics store ( CC or Best buy). it's very simple. the memory card goes into the card reader and that ensemble plugs into any of the usb ports in your computer. once plugged in, the computer will recognize it as external memory, just like a flash/thumb drive and your comptuer can read the pictures off of the card without any interaction with the camera itself. all you will need to do is copy the pictures and paste them into any folder you wish.

Design defect I have been a long time user of Canon Digital Cameras. I began with the Canon Powershot S200, Powershot S330 and graduated to an EOS Rebel XT. Beginning when I first uploaded pictures to my Macintosh Powerbook from my trusty S200, I was literally blown away with the quality of the photos. One most sentimental experience I had with your camers was after I bought a new home outside Buffalo, NY. My mother was 90 and living in a nursing home in Central New York. She was very intere
