    I connected it via USB cord, i have a macbook but I actually found out how to upload the images.  For some reason, the CR2 images I shot were uploaded to iphoto so I converted them into DNG images which photoshop could read. Took a while but it was worth it to get the DNG converter!

    Did you connect the camera itself via USB or use an external card-reader?
    Mac or windows?

Have you tried the "Adobe Camera Raw"- plug in for Adobe Photoshop, it should handle CR2-files whithout previous conversion. It is sometimes best to load the images from within a program like iView or just drag the images into a desktop folder. I think iPhoto is somehow the default program (possible to override, though).

Try restarting your computer or try it on a different computer, "Busy" usually means something is preventing your computer from reading the camera. If that does not help,try calling Radio shack or Staples.

Try 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Switched to MAC - have EOS40D and SX100 - will not download SX100


Yes, you need to install the SX100 driver software as well. I wouldn't overwrite older versions of the Canon software, though, so do a selective install if you can.

Canon EOS 40D won't export my pictures onto my computer


Sometimes you need to have the driver files for the particular camera. The 40D does require this and I experienced the same issue. You may be able to download the files at the Canon website. Try this link:
