Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

After downloading software on new Dell PC w/Windows Vista, PC does not recognize that camera is connected and I cannot open the camera window from the start icon.


\015 I am unable to open the camera window after connecting my canon a560 to my Dell 531s w/ Vista. Software is installed properly, should I uninstall and reinstall it and try again? Apparently this is a problem which has happened to others. Please advise. Thank you\015

Answers :

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 Picasa.
