Zoombrowser problems

Unread post by Fransmargate » Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:22 am

Hi Everyone

We are still in New Zealand and I decided to upgrade my laptop. I have/had a notebook and decided it was time to buy a bigger screen laptop - so I bought an Asus laptop . Very nice with a big screen etc. The problem started when I wanted to download the Canon programs that is Zoombrowser,etc ( I have a Canon 400D and a 40D) The laptop came with Windows 7 Home Premium and apparently not compatible with the Canon cd.

Has anyone had the same problem? If so what did you do to rectify this.?

Please help :mrgreen:

Regards Frans

The CD that came with my 500 worked fine on my Windows 7 laptop.

Can you download it from the Canon site?

I discovered when I got a new point and shoot Canon (SD1200, replacing the SD300 that was stolen — and which I much preferred) that the newer ZoomBrowser software (which would be what you got with your 500) isn't compatible with older Canon cameras :roll: :twisted: So I suspect that the version of ZoomBrowser that works with older Canon models isn't compatible with Windows 7 — yet another good reason for me to stick with XP :whistle:

Thank you Saraf and Arks for your input.
Arks I agree with you about keeping the XP. All the laptops I looked at had Windows 7!
My best option seem to be that I have to purchase Adobe or Lightroom. Which program would you suggest?
