Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S300 / IXUS 300 Digital Camera ?

I have a new computer with Vista and I am going to install my old Canon IXUS 300 camera to it. However, I don'have the initial drivers (no CD) so I need to get new ones. Is that possible? Regards, Peter

Answers :

Unfortunately, no it's not possible for Vista. Canon did not update the drivers for many of its older cameras for the Vista operating system (yours included).

Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera.
