    Canon PowerShot A40 Digital Camerca, no driver in Vista

    My digital camera don't work anymore because there is no driver support.

    It's Canon PowerShot A40 which I purchased ~4 years ago, which worked fine
    in XP

    Can Microsoft include the driver for this? So far canon.com don't have
    driver for my camera yet, and I have to load my photos and connect my Camera
    from Linux.

    Welcome to the brave new world of Vista. I had an A40 but I gave it
    to my daughter after buying a Canon S3 IS. IBut have a Sony Camcorder
    that has an USB interface that Vista broke. I doubt Microsoft will
    solve this; It's up to the camera venders to release new drivers for
    Vista. This will be a test of how well they support obsolete
    products. BTW, my new Canon camera doesn't require a driver. It act
    just like a USB flash-drive and uses the flash-drive driver built into
    windows. Smart move by Canon but too late for owners of older camera
    models.

    As for a solution to your problem, you may just have to break down and
    by a flash card reader that works with Vista. It would have the added
    advanage of being faster. The A40 uses the old slow USB 1.0
    interface. My new Canon camera uses USB 2.0 and transfers photos much
    faster than my old A40.''

    Thanks. I think that would be the cheapest and easiest way to solve the
    problem in alternative to the driver.

    A flash card reader has many advantages including speed, not using the
    camera battery, portability, using the flash card for non-camera
    purposes like any flash card .......
