Thank you for the response - as for Windows XP, it is almost always 32-bit, but doesn't say anything about it, if it is.
Try the following procedure, step by step:
Unplug your camera from the computer, if it isn't unplugged already.
Then go to
Start - Control Panel - Scanners and Cameras,
and if there is an icon for your camera there, select it and Delete it (using the Del key on your keyboard.)
Then go to
Start - Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs,
and once the programs list has come up, locate any program for your Canon PowerShot camera that is listed there... most likely you'll see
at very least. Select that program, and Remove (or Change, then Remove) it.
Then restart your computer.
Then when the computer is restarted, plug your camera in to the computer again for a minute or two, then unplug it again.
Then, go tohttp://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx50_hs#DriversAndSoftware
and click once on the 'Select Operating System
' control (somewhat lower down on the page), and selectWindows
and then click once on the 'Select OS Version' control
, and selectWindows XP
then click once on the link for 'Software
' to reveal the driver downloads list, and then download the ImageBrowser EX for your camera.
Save it to disk, then double-click on the downloaded file, and do the program installation.
(When prompted, plug in your camera to the computer. Or if never prompted, plug it in after the program installation has completely finished.)
