Two ways.

or

you go to the Canon website and get all the software including the download software and add-ons. The Win 7 software should be good on Win 10 and includes ZoomBrowser and PhotoStitch.

From the REC menu, select Setup and then select Format.

Full instructions are in the "Formatting a CF Card" section of the manual (page 98 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

images are stored on standard Type I CompactFlash cards. Consider the included 8 MB card a starter capacity, since its 12-picture limit means you'll need to return to your computer often to transfer images and free up the card for more pictures. A 128 MB card is a great size for this camera, storing around 200 images. To transfer images to your computer, simply attach the included USB cable between your PC and your camera. Your computer should automatically recognize your camera and let you move the pictures to your hard drive. Simply click on my computer click on new drive shown in this folder, select all the pictures, copy them and past to your desired location,
you can also copy picture by using card reader, put the SD card in card reader and follow the same procedure
Good luck, do rate the solution if helped

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.
