Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD960 IS Digital Camera ?
Downloading pics on Canon Powershot SD960 IS.
\015 I have a Canon Powershot SD960 IS. I have followed the instructions on how to download pictures on my computer. When I connect the USB port and turn the camera on, it shows that the camera is connected. However neither the CameraWindow program nor Microsoft Digital Image Editor are showing up on the dialogue box which asks which program to use to launch the action. I have also tried accessing these programs through the Programs menu but I get the message 'Cannot detect camera.Check Connection and retry'. The connection is there as indicated by the dialogue box yet I keep receiving the same message. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the DIGITAL SOLUTION disk that came with the camera.\015
