"Connect Camera as Mass Storage Class"____

I have a problem described in Microsoft Article ID: 814390 whereas I cannot download an .avi file since it is 1.7GB. The recommended solution is: "You can connect the camera by using USB Mass Storage Class (MSC) instead of PTP. Then, transfer large files by using Windows Explorer."

"Well, that sounds simple enough," I thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find PTP or MSC in the computer anywhere. Even the Help and Support Center (F1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

That's what I ended up doing anyway. I have Windows XP Home Edition. The camera is a Canon PowerShot A1000IS. The solution was: Don't use Scanner and Camera Wizard to import large files, use the Canon ZoomBrowser utility and get updates from the Canon website for newer cameras.
