Re: Canon software USB problems

Be sure to switch communication in the S45 menu from PTP to Normal.
Doing this, I was finally able to use RemoteCapture 2.6 on Mac OS X (10.2.4).

As with most all USB devices, the Mac OS automatically recognizes
the hardware. I have a Sony and don't worry about the drivers since
the software is built in. Sometimes the system will not recognize
the port, unplugging the unit and replugging it in is all the is
needed for it then to be seen.

Help please!

I've recently bought a Canon s45, and installed the image browser
v2.7 software on my Mac (OS 9.2.2), (canon digital solution disc
version 11.0), and the first use of the program everything worked
fine. However since this time, the software will not detect my s45
on the usb port. It will still detect my D30 immediately.

All previous software versions/system extensions & prefs too were
deleted prior to installation. I've also trashed and reinstalled
and restarted everything twice again, but still the camera isn't

In my extensions folder there are files "EOS D30 USB" and "PSUSB
EOS D30 mounter", and similar files for other camera models, but no
corresponding files for the s45.
The limited software manuals have no troubleshooting sections which
might help.

The Canon download page shows no drivers for the s45.

Please, someone : could you email me the relevant drivers (I assume
they are called "s45 USB" and "PSUSB s45 mounter", and are only
around 80k size) or if these don't exist, suggest how the software
interprets a connected s45.
