Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera ?

Can't download photos from camera to Windows Vista on laptop

\015 All the "fix-it" suggestions and freeware I've searched for only help Windows versions XP and earlier versions. Since the camera is 2+ years old, the disk it came with won't help. This is work-related and a time-sensitive problem. SOS! Thanks.\015

Answers :

It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days. Just make sure you get one that's stated capable of reading your A40's CF card (if you need it right now, Walmart has a good selection of these):
