newbie here..

i'm considering getting a used canon powershot a530 i saw at a pawn shop,
but all it has is the usb cable (no manual or software).

i downloaded the manual from canon's site, but did not see the software available for download.

can i find it elsewhere? (besides buying a new unit)...

tia

Drilling down from http://web.canon.jp/Imaging/BeBit-e.html through support I can see drivers, but no PC software. But I believe the PC software is common to all Canons, and I can drill down to A520 PC software.

Addinging this note:
But you do need the software from the original product CD - otherwise these upgrades won't install.

hi

yes, but i'm on a mac.

i did get in touch with canon and the cdrom that comes with the package when you buy a new camera IS for sale through them (though i was hoping it was just a free download...)

thanks

Oh, anyway, I just remembered the downloads only work if you have the original CD - so you're kind of in a fix.

i think i'm just going to wait for the price to drop a little on the new ones and get the warranty and the whole deal.
