You don't need a driver.


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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

i have the same problem here. had it first in 2009 just about 8 months after purchase but had it fixed under warranty. It took them about 4 months to return my cam. they still have to send it to malaysia( im from philippines).

Now, 2 years later, it's back to the old problem. probably this has to do with the model considering that i saw lots of similar complaints

On the bottom of the camera, just below the lens, there's a sticker. The sticker starts with Canon PC1267, the next line reads DC 3.15V, and the line directly below that is the serial number.

This happened with my Canon Powershot A470. I sent it back to he manufacturer and they said I was using the wrong batteries. Even though the camera is supplied with two alkaline batteries, they recommend using AA NimH rechargable batteries.
