    I swear that when I first installed the software I was downloading
    only the new images from the camera into my PC. If I take new pix and
    download them, only those new ones would download. Now that's changed
    and all pix download again, resulting in many unwanted duplicates in
    the PC. I've uninstalled the software, reinstalled it, made sure the
    box for "new images only" is checked in the camera window preferences,
    but it still downloads all the pix in the camera. What's up? What's
    the fix?

    Don't install the software. Just set the camera so your computer reads the
    memory card as a removable hard drive, or use a separate card reader, and
    use Windows Explorer to select what pics *you* want to transfer.

    Or, delete pics from the camera once you have downloaded them.

    Good idea for that, although I think I found a glitch and it's working
    right now, even with the Canon software. I wiped the old software, and
    this time went into the registry to delete any remaining evidence of
    it, and finally did the re-install without virus scan software active.
    It's operating as expected now, so I can do what I need to.

    In the process of examing the software, however, I found a set of
    commands to change the boot up spalsh screen on the camera, along with
    assigning different sounds to functions. This comes under the "Manage
    My Camera" heading, but does not seem to work on the A560. Whereas
    instructions mention a pull-down menu of [Camera], along with [Save to
    PC], those are not visible to me. I suspect the A560 doesn't support
    it? Or is there something I'm missing on that front? TIA!
