    How is the Canon G16 connected? USB or Wireless?

    Never mind, bad question. I thought the G16 was a printer!

    A lot of good replies there. A few points to think about. I do have the windows 7 disc but I am just going to wait for a while. I will NOT be doing the 8.1 update. Last night I did the updates for windows 8 and there were 57 all told. Its running ok at moment so I am now looking around for some free to use programs to burn my music to discs. Luckily after the main hard drive was formatted when I put windows 8 back in I found my backup discs containing all my photos, music and documents. Some documents I had not backed up since before doing the update so I have lost them. I downloaded a free program to see if it could find any that was left intact on the hard drive. It found lots but nearly all were unrecoverable. Still there are a lot of lessons to be learnt here and the main one is TO BACK UP EVERYTHING on a regular basis. This is what I am going to do from now on.
