Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera ?

I lost the dvd for the camera to put it into the computer


Answers :

Just wanted to Add to previous solution. You can pick up a card reader for less than $20 at Target, Walmart, or Radio Shack
You can download drivers and software from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=324&modelid=15672

Just select your computer's operating system and go from there.

You can also download manuals and more from the same page.

Having said that... The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.
