General Issues for Windows Me
-----------------------------

1. General Issues
=================

(1) The camera icon may persist, causing an error the next time the
    camera is connected, if, during a connection, the camera's power
    is shut off, the USB cable is detached or the camera automatically
    powers down after being left alone for an extended period.  The
    camera may not function correctly if reconnected during this
    condition.  If this happens, shut down and restart the computer
    before attempting to reconnect.

(2) If you have set the WIA Driver settings to start ZoomBrowser EX
    when the camera is connected, the ZoomBrowser EX camera window may
    not open automatically at startup. To use the camera window,
    double-click the Canon camera icon in the ZoomBrowser EX window.

(3) If you have set [Save all pictures to this folder] in the camera
    Properties, extensions are not added to the names of copied RAW
    images and movies. Choose a copied image and select [Rename], or
    uncheck [Save all pictures to this folder] then right-click the
    camera icon and select [Save All...] from the pop-up menu.

(4) If you have set [Actions] in the camera Properties, in some cases
    the settings may not be reflected.

(5) When a certain program is set to start up on establishing
    connection with the camera in the WIA driver's settings, the
    stated up program may display error messages such as [Cannot find
    the TWAIN data source. Reinstall the scanner software.] In this
    case, use WIA-TWAIN driver, selecting [WIA-model] as the TWAIN
    device in the start up program.

(6) RAW images and movies from the camera cannot be saved to the
    computer with the WIA-TWAIN Driver.

(7) Using the WIA-TWAIN Driver with the view setting set to [Detail]
    may result in an error message or a system shutdown. If this
    occurs, select the [Thumbnails] view setting to use the WIA-TWAIN
    Driver.


2. Issues with the [Scanner and Camera Wizard]
==============================================

(1) The image properties contents may be lost if an image in the
    camera is rotated with the [Scanner and Camera Wizard].

(2) The thumbnail of an image in the camera that is saved to the
    computer with the [Scanner and Camera Wizard] may appear in wrong
    rotated orientation, regardless of whether the image was rotated
    in the Wizard, or not.

(3) Incorrect Time Setting with Auto Save The recording date of saved
    images may be advanced or delayed several hours if you have set
    the WIA Driver settings to automatically save all camera images to
    disk when a camera is connected.

(4) If you copy image data by dragging and dropping it into another
    folder from the window summoned by clicking [Explore Camera
    (Advanced)] in the [Scanner and Camera Wizard], an error may occur
    with subsequent use of the Wizard. To prevent this error, do not
    copy image data from the window summoned by clicking [Explore
    camera (Advanced)] in the Wizard.

(5) RAW images and movies in the camera cannot be saved to the
    computer with the [Scanner and Camera Wizard].


3. Issues Regarding Viewing and Acquiring Camera Images with [My
   Computer]
================================================================

(1) The camera images may not display correctly in the thumbnails list
    created after opening the camera icon from [My Computer]. If this
    happens, click the [View] menu and select [Refresh].

(2) The recording date of camera images saved to the computer by
    dragging and dropping them in Windows Explorer may be advanced or
    delayed several hours.

(3) When RAW images and movies in the camera are copied to the
    computer using drag-and-drop function, [Copy To] button, [Copy]
    and [Paste] from the menu or other procedurs, the extensions are
    not added to their names.  To reverse to the original name, choose
    an image and select [Rename] from the menu. Also the thumbnail
    image files are not copied with the image files. If you wish to
    include the thumbnail image file, choose an image and select
    [Save...] from the menu.

(4) When [Detail] is selected from the [View] menu, extensions are not
    displayed in the names of RAW images and movies. To see the
    extensions, choose an image and select [Properties] from the menu.

(5) Double-clicking RAW image or movie does not start up the
    associated application. To start up the application, right-click
    an image and select [Convert] or [Play], or choose the application
    in the [Open With] dialog after double-clicking the image.

(6) If in the camera there are several files with the same file name,
    errors may occur when displaying their thumbnails.
