How can I get my Canon A620 to work with Windows 7

Just signed up here, ot the brightest with tech stuff. I'm trying to get my Powershot A620 to work with Windows 7. I'm guessing there's drivers I need to down load ? Will they be on the Canon website or on this help site ? 

 

I'll keep looking around.

If you need photo software and don't have any you can download Canon software here.

But if you already have software you use there is nothing special you need. Ether connect the camera using a USB cable or remove the SD card from the camera and use a card reader (either an external one or the computer may already have one built in.)

 

If  you decide to connect the camera via USB you don't need a driver; its built into W7.

Thanks for that, a good friend got off work early and figured it out for me. As I say, I'm kinda dense. now if I can just learn to adapt to the" newer" way of doing things with Win 7.......I didn't dare try 8, after some stories I'd heard.

I am also facing the same issue. So while it works with the CARD Reader but not thru the USB Cable Supplied !!

All Windows & Camera Settings seem to fine. But upon connecting the USB cable it doesn't recognize. Even the Device Manager doesnt list the Camera,
