Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A700 Digital Camera ?

Camera will not connect to laptop

\015 My Canon Powershot A700 Camera will not connect to my vista lapto, I have loaded the software, and the USB drivers as the instruction manual told me too, but when I plug in the camera, it will not use the software to download the pictures. The Canon software program lists as one of the options in the Windows window to be Canon CameraWindow, but when you select it nothing happens.\015
