Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

My XT will not connect to Vista.


\015 I have had a Rebel XT for about a year now and all the software to download my pictures was on my old laptop, with Windows XP. I recently bought a laptop with windows Vista, and I installed all the software for my camera from the CD's (EOS Utility, Camera Window, Zoombrowser, etc) but when I attach my camera to my computer and open the EOS utility, I cannot upload any pictures to my computer, it doesn't recognize that my camera is even plugged in.Vista does not recognize the camera, the Canon software being correctly installed. It always alerts that the camera isn't connected to the notebook (compaq presario 500 With Vista Home Basic).\015\012Thanks for any hint.\015

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
