Hi guys I have an early model digital Canon camera my friend gave me. it has one of those early big memory cards in it ( do it won’t fit in a card reader or my Chromebook’s slot) and to load the photos onto a laptop/netbook it has a USB cable. I connected it to my Mint netbook but it wasn’t recognised- nothing happened. I would need a driver wouldn’t I?
Would it be possible that Linux would have one for it? It did for the old xp scanner my friend gave me the other year which Mark kindly found the driver for.
The make of the Canon camera is Powershot A10.
I found it online, but it says there are no driver for it…
Which is a shame as it takes ace photos and is easy to use. My friend gave me a newer Fuji camera last week ( so I can use the slot on my Chromebook) but although the Canon is heavier on batteries I find it easier to use. I will have to spend ages reading the Fuji manual.
I suppose if it has no drivers I will have to give it to my Mum who has Windows.
Thank you SeZo! The CF to USB thing looks a good option if Mark can’t find a driver. My mother has an iphone, so probably wouldn’t use the Canon camera and I don’t feel like giving it away, although the Fuji’s card can be slotted right into the Chromebook and its batteries last longer, I just find the Canon so much easier to use and it takes better photos!
I use the take pics in 10 secs function on the Fuji which makes a little difference, but it is no way as good as the Kodak I used to have and even my previous mobile phone I had ( which i wish hadn’t died now) had abetter camera ( my new mobile has one of those sims that are very difficult to take out and put back in, and with no usb on it I don’t bother trying to load its photos on to my chromebook or netbook).
