My Canon camera cannot install videos !

My Canon camera cannot install videos on my PC. It's a Canon Powershot A530. Images are OK. However, I cannot see the device driver for the camera. I thought that the drivers were automatically installed when they were connected. I am using a Windows 7, 64bit PC, and the software that came with the camera states Windows XP2. Would it be OK to try to install that first?

You need the software from the cameras website to get the Win7 drivers.

wiz-king - Thanks, but could you point me to the exact location on the website, please. I have tried to download the appropriate software, but failed miserably!

Many, many thanks for your help. I used the old installation discs (XP2), and would you believe it? They installed without a hitch, and now I can import my videos from the Canon A530. It looked as if the software updated as it installed. Thank you once again.
