If the camera is still under warranty, make sure you send it to be fixed before the warranty runs out. When they fix this problem they will also clean and service your camera, so it's a good idea to get it fixed (under warranty). But there's no reason to worry about this affecting any other operation in your camera. I never use the cable to transfer photos - I always take the memory card out of the camera and transfer using a card reader.

40d won't read or format any memory card that previously could read

Hello =) ^^

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    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.

    Mac won't recognise canon drive

    First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

    Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
    Download this camera photo recovery software
    Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

    My canon eos 40D says busy when trying to upload...

    i often find with SLRs (and other proprietary cameras) its far safer to use a card reader.

    Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

    The usb plug on my Canon 40d broke off.

    Don't do it. You will more than likely get dust on the sensor and then you've got a MUCH bigger problem. Take it to have it removed at a camera shop. Then while you're their get a USB card reader for your memory card. It's so much faster and you'll wish you'd got one long ago.

    Help, I can't upload my pic's to my computer, I am using a port that worked

    If you have a SD card, or any other in fact, you can get a card reader/writer at most electronics stores. This will enable you to use a card reader instead of using the camera to upload pictures.

    I use a card reader all the time, and never (almost never) use a usb connecting cable to the camera to upload the pictures.
    One problem which can arise is that the camera may have internal pictures taken with no card. If this is the case, you can in most cameras, copy from the internal memory to the memory card. I realize that there are digital cameras which have no way to record to internal memory, only on the memory card whether that is a SD or some other kind.

    As to your direct problem. Try to reset ALL in the internal menu.
