Answers :

Yes, you need to install the SX100 driver software as well. I wouldn't overwrite older versions of the Canon software, though, so do a selective install if you can.

I've switched from a PC to a Mac and have installed the G9 Solution Disk on my Mac, however it doesn't seem to be working, I can't download photos to my MacbookPro, nothing happens when I connect the camera to the computer. I have checked and the camera is in playback mode. The software looks like it installed successfully however when I try to run CameraWindow it runs forever basically doesn't start.

I've had my Canon SD880 for awhile and have never had issues uploading pictures to my old PC. However I recently switched to Mac and seem to be having issues now. I downloaded all the camera software and once I tried to upload new pics, I received a "Failed to initialize program" message and can't seem to get any further. Any thoughts on what to do here? Thanks.

The video camera function on our PowerShot SX100 IS has switched to a feature that seems to be designed for emailing video files. We get a "compact" text box when switching to video, and there's a little envelope icon in the upper right. The problem is that we're ending up now shooting videos that only show up in tiny form, where before we had higher quality, bigger (view wise) clips. Any idea how to switch that Compact feature back to Not Compact (full-size?)? Thanks!


Try putting the camera in video mode, then call up the menu and set the resolution to a larger sized image...that might get it corrected. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
