Other Methods of Downloading Images to the Computer
There is no need to install ZoomBrowser EX with either method.
* Windows XP (Installation of USB Driver Not Required)
Your camera uses a standard image transfer protocol called Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP).
With PTP and Windows XP, all you need do is connect the camera to the computer with an
interface cable to easily download images using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard or other
procedures. However, there are some inconveniences and limitations to this downloading
method. See the For Windows® XP and Mac OS X Users leaflet for details.
* Windows Me (with the USB driver installed)
Easily download images using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard or Windows Explorer. All
you need do is connect the camera to the computer with an interface cable.
See the Windows Help system for information about the Scanners and Cameras Wizard and
Windows Explorer.

many image editing programs. It is first necessary to convert them into standard image files.
• See Information about Your Camera (p. 95) to determine whether your
camera model supports this function.
• See the Camera User Guide for information about the camera settings for
shooting RAW images.

different according to whether you are using a camera to computer connection (see below) or
a memory card reader (p. 54).
You may not be able to download the camera images if there are more than
approximately 1000 images in the camera. Use a memory card reader to
download in that case.
You can also display an index of the camera or memory card images to check
them before downloading or download them selectively. For instructions, see
Checking Images before Downloading (p. 67).
Camera to Computer Connection
Set the ImageBrowser auto start settings before you connect the camera to the computer for

Converting RAW Images
Converting RAW Images
RAW images are extremely high-quality images that are not subject to any deterioration due to
compression processing. Since they are a special type of image, they cannot be opened by
many image editing programs. It is first necessary to convert them into standard image files.
• See Information about Your Camera (p. 95) to determine whether your
camera model supports this function.
• See the Camera User Guide for information about the camera settings for
shooting RAW images.

Troubleshooting
This section explains the specific steps for each operating system.
Windows XP and Windows 2000
Users of Windows XP and Windows 2000 must first log in as an
Administrator (computer system administrator) to delete a driver.
Check to see if the camera is being recognized as an “other” device and

3. Click the
symbol beside the [Other devices] and/or [Imaging devices]
category. Your camera model name or [Canon Camera] will display in these
categories if it is being recognized as an “other” device.
There are other potential reasons for the problem if the “Other devices”
or “Imaging devices” categories do not appear or your camera model
name or [Canon Camera] does not appear. Proceed to Step 6,
temporarily quit the procedures and investigate the other potential
causes.
Windows/Macintosh
Solution 1:
Start with the following procedures.
Install the USB driver with the procedures in Installing the Software and USB
Driver (p. 10). Then connect the camera to the computer with the interface
cable and prepare it to transfer data. If the USB driver is already installed,
uninstall it first and then reinstall it.
Solution 2:
If the problem is not resolved with the procedures in Solution 1, continue by
implementing the following procedures. The specific steps are explained below.
1. Check to see if the camera is being recognized as an “other” device.
2. Delete the driver and the setup information files if it is being recognized as an

Connecting the Camera to a Computer
Ensure that you have installed the software from the supplied Canon Digital
Camera Solution Disk before you connect the camera to the computer.
• Your camera and computer
• Canon Digital Camera Solution Disk
• Interface cable supplied with the camera
• Use the interface cable to attach the camera directly to a USB port on the
computer, not through a USB hub. The connection may not operate correctly
through a USB hub.
• The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices,
excluding USB mice or keyboards, at the same time as the camera. If this
occurs, disconnect the other devices from the computer and try reconnecting
the camera.
• Do not connect two or more cameras at the same time to the same computer
via the USB interface. The connections may not operate correctly.
• Never allow the computer to go into standby (sleep) mode while a camera is
connected via the USB interface. If it does happen, never disconnect the
interface cable. Try to awaken the computer with the camera in the
connected state. Some computers will not awaken properly if you disconnect
the camera while they are in standby (sleep) mode. Please refer to your
computer manual for instructions regarding the standby (sleep) mode.
You are recommended to power the camera from a household power source
(AC adapter) when connecting to a computer (if available for your camera
model). Ensure that you use fully charged batteries if you will not be using a
household power source.
See the page (p. 95) for your specific model for information about connecting the camera to
the computer.
