Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera ?

My canon S5 IS is not recongnized by Windows XP in my PC


\015 Im desesperate, I installed all the software and when I connect the camera through the interfaz cable is not recognized... I think for windows XP I need a special USB Wia driver for this model, but i cant find it anywhere to download... what can i do to solve this?\015

Answers :

I am afraid this is a microsoft O/S issue. It will not allow 2 imaging devices with twain drivesrs to be recognised at the same time. You have to disconnect one at the usb plug before the O/S can see the other one.

I have a scanner with twain drivers and XP will not recognise my S5 IS until i unplug the scanner. The O/S is recognising the camera as an imaging device rather than a usb mass storage device like for my other cameras.

Either MS need to fix this conflict issue or Canon need to reconfigure their drivers.
I have same problem too. I connect the camera to XP via USB and its says that there is no connection. Only thing that has helped is to use photoshop.. There is something called import and my camera is shown there. But it takes a hell of a lot time! And images must be changed to .jpeg.. And the card is too big for my computer to understand. Well, fortunately I have Linux witch finds my camera!
