Default Help Canon G3 . Cannot view images

My Canon G3 has just failed on me. I can open zoombrowser"", but when i select view and download images", it takes a long time, then either i get no images showing, or on my other CF card i get a lot of yellow & black question marks instead of images. (all these images view ok on the LCD or TV).

Ive reinstalled the software a couple of times.

Anyone come across this problem before using Canons Zoombrowser. Is it the Camera ???

You said your camera can preview or output pics to TV, all the images you have shot and stored on your card, Then it's unlikely to be a camera problem.

Sounds like a usb driver problem, also check Canon site for upgrades. When you re-installed the software, did you disconnect the camera from the usb, do an uninstall first, shut down and re-boot your pc? Do you have a card reader, can you read your files with this? What OS are you running?

Thanks for info.
Yes i did disconnect USB, & shut down computer.
No i dont have a card reader, i will buy one when i figure out which one is best.

Im using XP Professional.

ive figured out ( from info on this site) i can download direct from the camera using "camera & scanner wizard". Then i copy the images an send to Zoombrowser to convert from RAW to Tiffs, or Stitch them. but when i do this, i cannot view the images in "camera window" or "file viewer". instead they just appear as yellow (?)s. i guess that would no imply it was a software problem?
