Default NT 4.0 and Canon software

I recently purchaced an A70. My home computer has Windows NT 4.0. The software that came with the camera (ver 12.0) will not install. The drive reads the disk, prompts me to select my camera from the list, of which there are none listed, then asks to choose which software I want to install, of which none is listed.

If I plug in the USB connection to the computer and camera the camera comes up as "my digital camea" on the windows explorer but I cannot view it's contents.

What am I doing wrong here? Any ideas?

NT4 is not as media and device friendly as W2k or XP. you could try calling TS at canon but i would strongly suggest an OS upgrade.

Win NT 4.0 does not support USB (fully). It is doubtful that you will ever get the combination to work. Two suggestions:

1) update to Win2K or XP Pro.

2) Get a non USB card reader to download your photos. This option used to include SCSI readers, but I do not think you will find any currently being made. There may be a parallel port reader that could work, but you will have to do some research.
