I started using my card reader.
Hi, to give you some background info on this I own a Canon Powershot G2 which I purchased in late 2001. So yes it is quite an old camera as far as technology is concerned but It's a great camera so I have no interest in getting a new one.
Last week I upgraded from Windows XP Professional to Windows Vista Home Premium. Upon connecting my camera to my laptop through the USB cable, Windows detected there was new hardware and my camera was even detected in Scanners and Cameras in the Hardware section of the Control Panel.

Anyway, the problem is that it will not transfer photos. Autoplay will have nothing to do with it, and not let me assign a program to use when I connect the camera. After trying for some time, the "Problems and Solutions" Application informed me that Canon informed Windows that the Canon Powershot G2 is not compatible with Windows Vista, and they don't plan to fix this problem. (The latest driver for the G2 on Canon's website is for Windows XP.)
Okay, so basically since it's an old camera Canon thinks it can make me get a new one.
So my question is, how can I work around this? Is there any photo transfer programs that will transfer the pictures successfully? Or any other alternatives? I'd like to hear everything.
Hopefully I've explained this well, thank you for any help on this!!
