Go to Canon web side and download to your computer the relevant drivers for your camera and OS (Mac OSX). It should solve your problem. Good luck!

Hi, I can not tranfer images from camera to computer using a usb cord. I tried 2 different cords and 4 different computers. I do not have a card reader, so please don't ask me to go purchase a card...


We need to rule some things out. Do the USB cables you're trying to use work on other "known to be good" devices? Do not reuse any cable(s) that doesn't work, even if new. Once you have a cable that has been proven to work, try connecting the camera to the USB port on the computer again. Make sure the camera power is OFF while connecting to the computer. Only after connecting should you turn camera power ON again. You can review the whole process starting on page 147 of the manual.

If it doesn't work, it is possible that the ports you're trying to use is either 1) defective or 2) overloaded. Try connecting to a different USB port on one of the computers. If you don't have another USB port, or if it still doesn't work as expected, remove all the devices connected to the USB ports that are not needed to operate the computer. This will lower the amount of power the computer needs to supply to USB devices (some - but not all - computers will flash a message on the screen if there's too many devices connected). Reconnect the powered off camera and try again after turning back on..

If you're still having a problem, suspicion turns to the camera's USB port. Resolving a problem within the camera will likely be the most expensive fix. It took considerable restraint, but I didn't even mention the other solution ;-)

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Canon Rebel XTi not recognized when plugged into usb

Vista is your problem. an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

Syncing camera to computer

What operating-system are you running?

On Windows XP and earlier versions of windows, there should be an icon on your desktop called "My Computer." Click on it once you've attached the camera. You'll at least see "Local Disk (C:), DVD/CD-RW drive (D:), Shared Documents, My Documents", and such. If your computer sees this USB camera, it should list it here. You can click on the camera's icon to view all your pictures.

On Windows Vista, getting to "My Computer" is a little bit trickier. I forget exaclty how, but it's not just set on the desktop like all previous Windows platforms.

I have a cannon EOS 400D and i am trying to download images on to my laptop. i have the the camera plug in to the usb socket and the camera is on play back and turned on

Hey ikpoole,
What you need to do to transfer your images to your computer is first make sure you have installed the software that came with the camera on your computer. Make sure the camera is off and connect your camera to the computer using the USB cord that came with the camera. Turn the camera on and your computer should detect the camera and ask you what program you want to use to download your images, and select the EOS Utility. Your images should now download to your computer. Another way to download your images would be to use a card reader that supports your type of memory card and plugs directly into a USB port. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
