Default Remote Capture on XP

I can't get my A60 Remote Capture to work on my XP system. Zoombrowser etc works fine. I connect the camera on the 'play' setting, hear the connect beep, but RC gives a "check cable" error and can't connect.

Any suggestions? thanks.

Hi I have an A40 and Remote Capture would not connect to my camera either, unless I do the following in order.

Try this Camera off connect to USB cable, camera in play mode turn on camera.
Does zoombrowser program launch?
It should, mine launches zoombrowser (version and the camera window to download images.
Close the camera window and in the zoombrowser window click Camera & Memory Card button in the Tasks pane. Then click the Remote Shooting button and it should launch Remote Capture and the Connect to Camera box pops up select yes and the camera shutter should open and the lens will extend and your ready to shoot.

I have to do it this way or the program doesn't recognize I have a camera attatched.

Hope this helps.
