Transfer images to camera CF card

I have a Power Mac G5 using OS 10.4.11 and want to transfer images from the computer to compact cards in my Rebel XT.  How do I do that? In Camera Window, in Set To Camera, the choice Uploads images to the Camera is dimmed out.  What have I done wrong and what do I do?

I have a Minolta Dimage digital camera that warns against doing what you are trying to do. Specifically it says "Only images taken by the camera should be stored on the Compact Flash card". I am not sure what the hazard is but I will research that and post that back to you. I am saying this now just to let you know that it is possible that the camera or flash card may suffer an adverse effect by doing this maybe due to the formatting or associated file attributes transferred.I just don't do that using the camera because of this warning.

You have two choices. Either you connect camera using an usb cable, or you use a card reader.

If you connect your camera by USB, the camera memory will be displayed on the MAC as camera or as an external hard drive, in this case you copy fines into your computer, from there.
The same if you use a card reader, find the memory card on your Mac resources and copy files.

I have a CF err on my Canon Rebel XTI EOS


If your camera uses a compact flash card, then something is wrong with it. Possible causes: card needs formatting in camera (this will erase it) one or more pins inside camera are bent. Card was erased or formatted on computer instead of camera.

Canon Rebel xt does not accept CF cards for no apparent reason


It sounds like a bent pin in the CF slot. This is not a do it yourself fix. Take it to a repair shop.

Instead of connecting via the camera, just use a USB card reader and put the CF card in that.

Canon rebel xt error messages


error 99 can most times be remedied by taking a standard pencil eraser and carefully cleaning the gold contacts at the back of the lens and the gold maching contacts in the lens opening of the camera... BE CAREFUL not to let eraser crumbs into your camera... keep it clean... reset the battery and give it a whirl.... did it solve the 99 issue?
for the CF it refers to the cf card... here's what I've found on this:
Canon reports that this error code may appear on your digital camera’s LCD (liquid-crystal display) when there is an error reading from or writing to the inserted CF (CompactFlash) card. This error code occurs most often after a user has tried to eject a CF card before the camera has finished writing data to the card.Solution:
Canon suggests that you first try to use a different CF card. If you do not see the error message when you use the new CF card, the first card is probably damaged.

Before you take the next step, drag the files from the CF card to a location on your hard drive to back up the files. Next, you can use Windows’ ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. If you use a Mac, you can use Disk Utility (in Applications\Utilities\) in OS X.

If ScanDisk or Disk Utility fails to resolve the CF card problem, insert the CF card in your camera again. Then format the CF card. On most Canon cameras, you can do this by pressing the Menu button, selecting the Format tab, highlighting Format, selecting Format, and choosing Yes. Make sure you have backed up the data on the card before you do this. Formatting the card will delete the images from the card. After you format the card in your camera, use ScanDisk or Disk Utility to check the CF card again. If you still encounter errors while using ScanDisk or Disk Utility, you should discard the CF card because it is damaged.

If the error still occurs after following the steps above, your camera may need repair. Contact Canon’s technical support for further assistance.

hope this solves your issues....
let me know

??? These cameras take standard CF cards (and store images in standard JGP format) that can be 'read' directly by PC's with a multi-media card slot.

If your PC does not have a card slot, you can buy a USB CF Card Reader/Writer for a few dollars ..

PS always reformat the CF cards in the Camera not the PC ..

there are two chances: 1. your card is not compatible and 2. the card is defective.
good CF-cards you can get from SANDISK. I use them myself w/o a hassle and they are very fast......
keep your hands of Lexar or other Offbrand cards. they are not worth the money you pay for and also too slow. Sandisk cards have a real transfer rate of up to 40MB/s

Dynamite,
have you tried to reformat the CF card?  If you deleted the image through your computer and not with the camera, the computer may have removed more than what was needed...

You'll need a CF reader/adaptor for your computer, and software such as this

Just type "recover CF card data" and you'll find a host of downloads.

CF Error


I had the same symptoms. I took it to an authorized Canon repair shop. For $150, they resoldered connections on my 'power supply board'.  No idea why the solder gave out. It's working great now.
