Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD100 / IXUS II Digital Camera ?

Canon SD100 Powershot Can't download pics

\015 I have a Canon SD100 Powershop digital camera. When I connect it to the computer to download pics, no list of programs come up. It used to work fine and it would bring up a list of software programs to choose from to download the pics, now the box that pops up doesn't list anything. I have Windows XP.\015

Answers :

You may have accidently removed the photo programs you were using. Check to see if the software programs are indeed still on your computer by searching by name. If it or they are there , open one of the programs before you connect the camera and it should automatically download.
