Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

Unable to download Canon S3 IS on new hp, update software.

\015 Contacted canon and went through all apparent procedures to download Canon S3 IS. Technician said I needed to update ver28.2 solution disk. But unable to do this. Technician said may need a "reader." I don't know what this is. I used to have camera downloaded on old dell computer.\015

Answers :

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. If your computer doesn't have a built-in card reader then you can buy an inexpensive reader that connects to your USB port. 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.

Have a canon powershot A40...can download pics on other computers through camera and scanner wizard, but have a new refurbished machine that is great, but flashes the ''can not detect camera''. The sound happens when I plug in and turn on the camera. ZoombrowzerEx crashes everytime I open the program. Have unistalled and reinstalled it several times, downloaded software update for XP and still does the same thing. The USB ports all read my printer, and flashdrives as well as ipod. what is wrong?

Have old Olympus D-510 and Camedia Master 2.5 Software. Used software back with old Win98, then new computer to Win XP, downloaded update for 2.5 to work with XP. Now have another new computer with Windows 7. Question no. 1 - A friend who is a computer technician told me I dare not download any older software programs as they could ruin Win 7 operation.
