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.

check deep inside the card slot to see if you have any bent pins. They can often be straightened out with a thin screwdriver.

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.

Connecting my Rebel to my Laptop


I would highly recommend you to use a fast USB 2.0 compliant Compact Flash card reader to copy photos from your CF card to your PC. This is much faster than trying to copy the files from the camera, as your camera is USB 1.1 compliant (ie. very very slow).

However, if you wish to use your camera to copy files with Windows Vista, you must switch your 300D to operate in PTP (picture transfer protocol) mode instead of Normal one. (in the camera's screen, go to the last tab, and change the option: Communication from Normal to PTP). I am not sure though that the PTP mode will allow you to copy RAW images. You have to check it.

As for the RAW images, I suggest you download and install the Canon RAW codec from:

http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0026049.asp

This codec will allow you to open CRW files directly from the Windows Photo Gallery application. Perhaps if you install this codec first and then try to connect your camera in PTP mode with your PC, to succeed in what you want. Still though, I recommend you to buy a cheap USB 2.0 CF card reader, it will save you hundreds of hours of Camera to PC download time.

Hope this helps.

Image upload


??? 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

Sounds like a corrupt format on the Compact Flash card.

Take the bettery out, then the CF card. Put the battery back in but don't put the CF card in. Switch the camera on and see if you get a different error on the screen. If you get something like 'Missing card' then the camera is OK.

You will probably have to plug the CF card into a PC/Mac via a card reader to see if you can reformat it. If it doesn't work I'm afraid it will need replacing.

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.

What OS does the DiMAGE A2 support?


It's immaterial as the supplied software is poorly executed and completely unnecessary.
Just use whatever photo album software and editing package you're happy with and transfer the images from the camera using a cheap and readily available CF card reader. You'll also find that this results in far quicker uploads to your Mac/pc as well.
