Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Canon Rebel XT and it won't download onto my computer, which I've been doing for the past 2 years. Error message says, "camera not detected". Can't figure out what changed on the camera or computer in the past week that would explain this problem.

HI! DID YOUR CANON REBEL COME WITH ANY SOFTWARE? AND, WHAT OS ARE YOU USING? AND WHAT PHOTO PROGRAM ARE YOU USING?
I KNOW WITH WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY, HITTING FILE>IMPORT FROM CAMERA OR FILE THE PROGRAM WILL AUTOMATICALLY TRY TO FIND YOUR CAMERA. ARE YOU SURE THAT THE CABLE YOU ARE USING IS WORKING? IT MIGHT HAVE QUIT IF IT HAD HEAVY USE. TRY A DIFFERENT CABLE IF POSSIBLE. IF YOUR CANON CAME WITH SOFTWARE, I WOULD TRY A RE-INSTALL OR REPAIR OF ANY PROGRAM IT HAD. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED TO EITHER THE PROGRAM FROM THE CANON OR THE PHOTO PROGRAM YOU ARE USING. TRY TO UPDATE THE PHOTO PROGRAM IF THERE IS A NEWER VERSION. THIS MIGHT ALSO HELP SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. OK? IF NOT, JUST REPLY WITH THE TOP QUESTIONS AND WE'LL SEE WHAT WE CAN COME UP WITH.

If you haven't got this working yet let me offer a few suggestions.
It may be that the computer you are using has gone through an auto update or you have changed software. The Rebel XT is old enough that the camera firmware may not be compatible to the updated computer software. You may be able to update the camera firmware by going to the Canon site and download the updates they are free.

Or you can step around the camera by using a Memory Card reader. The reader is plugged into a USB port and the computer looks at it as an external Hard Drive or Mass Storage device.

You picture files can be downloaded to the computer Hard Drive and then the memory card needs to be "ejected" don't just pull it out the computer doesn't like it.

Once the memory card is placed back in the camera the memory card needs to be formatted and you are good to go again.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.
