Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD800 IS / IXUS 850 IS Digital Camera ?

SD800 no longer recognized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

\015 I'm running Vista 32 bit for well over a year and my camera has always been recongized until recently. Canon's website has Vista update drivers for most of their camera's but not for the SD800!\015\012\015\012I can't imagine what has changed for my camera not to be recognized but i hope to find the solution soon!\015\012\015\012Also, my SD card is an SDHC and my card reader does not read high capacity cards!\015

Answers :

Best solution for SDHC is a high speed card reader.
One that hooks up via Firewire.
Some of the compatible cameras with the higher capacity, faster cards are not recognized when connected to the computer... great work around and downloads are quicker too.

I have several TRV 20's. I seem to be "burning out" DV ports on them.
