Summary: The imagemixer 3 SE for SD disk did not work on my windows xp sp3 computer. I searched the internet for solutions and found none. This particular disk was for Windows xp sp2, but, it still should've worked, according to the flexera installshield site. I had to send it back. However, canon products come to me as highly recommended and this has not soured my experience with canon.
Summary: I should have gone with my gut on this purchase and not made--it seemed fishy that the seller had "lost the battery charger and the battery was dead, so you'd have to get a new one." I'm still kicking myself for wasting money on this camera that only works if it's plugged in to an outlet.
