and drivers have been correctly installed on your computer. If
you have not yet installed them, read the guide supplied with
your product and install them.
○
There are two ways to start ZoomBrowser EX: “Connecting the
Camera and Computer” and “Starting ZoomBrowser EX from
the Icon.” The “Connecting the Camera and Computer”
method is generally the most convenient for downloading
images from the camera. Use the icon method under the
following circumstances.
• To use ZoomBrowser EX when a camera or memory card
reader is not connected.
• To restart ZoomBrowser EX with a camera or memory card
reader already attached after the program has been closed.
• To use ZoomBrowser EX when the Auto Start function has
been set to start a different program when the camera is
connected.

very first time the camera is connected after the computer has
been booted up (due to a Windows limitation). Use the icon
method in this case. You can use the “Connecting the
Camera and Computer” method from the second time
onward.

Refreshing Folders
This section explains how to refresh or update a folder.
What Does It Mean to Refresh a Folder
Refreshing Folders
Click the [View] menu and select [Refresh Current Folder]. This
will update ZoomBrowser EX’s information about all the folders.
Adding, moving, copying or editing an image or a folder within
ZoomBrowser EX ensures that it is updated and appears
correctly in the Browsing Area.
However, the information ZoomBrowser EX possesses and the
actual file contents can be different when an image file is
moved or copied using Windows functions or edited with a
separate program.
In this case, the “current state of the folders” has to be
checked and updated. This is what is meant by refreshing a
folder.

when you play it, the sound will have a low volume when you

Supported Image Types
The following is a list of image types supported by ZoomBrowser EX.
Readable data types
ZoomBrowser EX can read the following image types.
■ JPEG (.JPG)
Most cameras use this image type. It compresses at very high
ratios, taking advantage of the characteristics of the human
eye. However, because it is an irreversible compression method
(part of the data is lost during compression), if you process and
save an image repeatedly using this method, the image may
become rougher.
■ Video clip (.AVI)
Standard Windows movie image type. The movie thumbnail
and a movie icon show in ZoomBrowser EX’s Browser Area.
■ QuickTime (.MOV)
This is a movie which display as a movie mark in the Browsing
Area of ZoomBrowser EX.
■ MPEG4 (.ASF)
Movies that integrate multimedia data, such as video, audio
and text. Primarily used by Windows programs. The MPEG4
compression technology allows for compact file sizes and
delivery over networks.
■ RAW (.CRW/.CR2)
This is a proprietary image type provided by Canon. It saves the
output of the image pixels from a digital camera without any
deterioration in the quality of the image. Some cameras might
not support this image type.
■ Windows bitmap (.BMP)
This file type comes standard with Windows. Most Windows
programs support it.
■ TIFF (.TIF)
This is a relatively popular image type. It is widely supported by
non-Windows programs (such as Macintosh).
■ PhotoCD (.PCD)
This is the image type used by Photo CDs.

• With some versions of Windows, this dialog may not appear
the very first time the camera is connected to the computer
after it is booted up. (It will display subsequently.)
In that case, click the [Start] menu and select [Programs] or [All
Programs], followed by [Canon Utilities], [CameraWindow],
[PowerShot - IXY - IXUS - DV 6] and [CameraWindow].
■ Check your Computer
Ensure that your computer meets the following requirements.
ZoomBrowser EX will not operate on computers failing to meet
these requirements.
• Built-in USB ports on a computer pre-installed with Windows XP
(including Service Pack 1, Service Pack 2)/Windows 2000 Service
Pack 4 only/Windows Me/Windows 98 SE only.
■ Check the Connection between the Camera and Computer
Camera Not Detected or Recognized
Confirm that the camera is correctly attached to the computer
with an interface cable. See the user guides for your camera for
connection information.
• A message such as “No camera was found” displays when you
attempt to download images from the camera.
• Even though [Canon CameraWindow] is selected in the Events
dialog, the Camera Control Window fails to open when the
camera and computer are connected with the interface cable
and set to the correct communication mode.

■ Check the Camera Status
Confirm that the camera is on and in the correct mode to
transfer data. Please see the user guides for your camera since
the methods for setting the camera and computer to the
communication mode vary between camera models. (With
some models, you must set the camera to the Playback mode,
etcetera, to establish a connection to a computer.)
How to Get Help
ZoomBrowser EX comes with a Help file. Use it when you want
to learn how to do an operation, or when you want to know
about the features of the program.
You can access Help from the [Help] menu or the [?] (Help)
button.
■ Check the battery
Help Menu
You are recommended to use a household power source (AC
adapter) for the camera when connecting it to the computer. If
the camera is running on batteries, ensure they are fully
charged.
If the problem does not rest in the four areas above, the driver
may not be properly installed. Uninstall the driver and then
reinstall it. For instructions for this task, refer to the Software
Starter Guide.
