Import pics win7

  1. Dec 27, 2012 #1
    I have a win home 64 bit system and a canon power shot 1000.

    I use to plug the camara in USB and a window would open asking what do I want to do?

    Then I would click import photos and it would open the import window on the bottom right side over the clock.

    I would then click settings tab on this box and it would let me setup how I want to import the pics and where I want to put them.

    So now I thought I would try it with my win home 64 bit laptop.

    But when I plug the camara in it beeps but I have to go into computer I one and right camara and click import.
    Then it opens import screen over clock but it dose not have the settings tab on the screen for me to pick where I want my pics to go.
    What is diferant on my laptop did I uninstall something win needs to do what the import screen does on my desktop?

    We cannot know from here. Guesses: the drivers are not the same, you did not install the canon 1 shot software? You have to look on each PC and determine where differences are. We cannot do that for you from here.

    Canon cameras used to come with a disc. I do not know that to be true right now. The disc had some software to facilitate downloading and picture selection.
    I just looked:

    Follow the menus to your camera model - there is software there for you to download, give it a try.
