Busy signal when trying to import images to my pc

When trying to import images from my rebel xti I get the word BUSY and the screen shuts off. It happens as soon as I plug in the USB end of the transfer wire. I think I deleted the software that came with the camera and I'm not sure where the disks are to reinstall it. I downloaded picassa and xnview to try to use those, but neither of those can read my camera to get the images to import.

Can anyone help??

I have had the same problem with getting a busy signal after plugging in the USB cord. Usually turning it on and off a few times, giving it a few seconds in between, works for me.
Also, have you tried just going into My Computer and clicking on the drive for the USB you've got you're camera plugged into and transferring the photos onto your pc from there? They only go onto your pc, not into a program but you can get them into one from there.

I have a canon rebel xti, when I take several pictures a get a busy signal and have to wait before I take another picture (flash?) how do i take pictures, many in a row without getting a busy signal..as if...


Not sure, a couple things to check are the memory card you are using. If you have different card give it a try. Also, if you are trying to do burst mode there is a limit for your camera depending upon your settings. When you reach that limit the camera has to wait while all the data is written to the memory card.

Sounds like it failed to write and then your battery ran out. Have you tried charging the battery back up?

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?


This is the camera writing to the CF memory card. Perhaps your card is a lttle slow, so you will see the message. I use the Sandisk Ultra II CF, labelled as 15Mb/sec and it is very very fast indeed - I don't have any lag with my XTi. Try a different CF, if it is fast enough, the message will go away. Ensure you format the card on the camera too.

If the flash fires a full charge(eg. in a dark environment) then this message will appear whilst it recharges. If the message appears all the time and you cannot take a photo there is most likely a problem. Try taking some pictures without the flash card to eliminate that first.

Recording images takes a very long time after turning camera on


Are you using a typeII Cf card. You might try reformatting the card. Or go pick up a type II or III card, the type IV's seem to not do as good in the Canon..

Canon 40D upload photos - camera busy -


When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

Sounds normal. You could get a faster computer. I like using a  USB card reader.
