Read the manual. No driver is needed.

the manual says it only works for Windows 7, Vista and XP. Was hoping to get lucky again.

What happens if you just plug it in - does Win 10 react?

If it comes up as a drive in "My PC" then you should be able to use it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

LOL Here I am. I visited Canon homepage for your camera and looked for drivers for Windows 10. I was told There is no driver for the OS Version you selected. The driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver.

Have you followed Derek's suggestion in Post #3?

Yeah, the software will download and set up but the pictures on the disk won't show on my computer. I have a disk full of pictures in it.

Thanks for the replies. I contacted Canon and asked them what to do.

Yeah, see how you get on - their answer would be of interest.

However it is not essential that you use additional software to see pictures on your computer - just go to Windows own Pictures folder. Are you saying they are not there? If you can see your camera as a drive in "My PC" then you can interact between with the Pictures folder using boring old copy/paste, dragging and dropping etc.

There is a common misnomer that has crept into modern computer usage that everything you want to do requires a program or app. If you prefer to work on your computer using a "gallery" then the same pictures that are in the pictures folder should appear by going to the start button and single click "Photos" (one of the blocks on the right). If it is not showing look under "All apps".

EDIT:
Maybe I'm not understanding you right. What do you mean by the pictures on the disk - what disk?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

the card in the camera. I finally got it. The Canon rep told me to go back and download the version for Windows 8. After i did that, I had no trouble with it.

thank you for the replies though..
