Default can I ask a camera question?

asking a camera question, cause I know many here are pretty camera savvy. I tried uploading my camera disk in to my new computer, it does nothing. seems it isn't set up for Windows 7. I went to Canon website (Canon Power shot A520), and they charge ($23.00!) to answer a question. well...don't want to do that! any ideas? thanks!

What do you need the disk for?

Windows should just let you upload photos from the camera either by plugging it in with the usb or a card reader.

Use gimp or something free for editing. Picasa works for gallery viewing, and some editing. I've just never installed a camera companies software that was worth the time loading it.

I use Picasa with great success with my Canon DSLR, but I have a Mac, so not sure how that changes things.

$23.00 to answer a question - LMAO !
Your "new" computer prob does not reconize the card your camera uses.
That is strange.
But direct connect your camera to computer and it should work.
