Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera ?

Canon ixus 500 not working on win7 64bit.

\015 When you plug in the Canon ixus 500 via USB nothing comes up in My computer or desktop. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

This model came out before the picture transfer protocol (PTP) was developed for direct interface between digital cameras and Windows/Mac computers. Also, there are no drivers available for anything newer than Windows XP. Your best option is to purchase a USB card reader ($10 or less) that can accept a CF card. You just take the card out our your camera, plug it in to the reader, and Windows 'sees' the card as another drive on your system. You can then view and download the photos.

Hello. The flash on my Canon IXUS 980 IS seems unable to work. The camera is about 2 years old. I have contacted Canon who advised taking out the battery for at least 30 mins and fully recharging it, which yielded nothing helpful. Is this a common issue and can it be fixed cheaper than the minimum £60 that a Canon service shop requires? Thanks for any help.
