Sorry this is a late response - I just had the issue with the T1i solutions disc ver. 20.0. on Windows XP
Right click your desktop and select Properties
Go to the Settings Tab
Under "Display" you should see it is selected to your default monitor or Plug and Play monitor.
Under that, you will see Screen Resolution on the left hand side. If the slide bar will not allow you to change this any higher, then at the bottom of the window you will see an option for Advanced
Write down your current screen resolution so you can change it back after installation is complete.
Click on Advanced - You will see tabs at the top - click on the tab marked "Monitor"
This will show you Monitor Type - under thatyou will see Screen Refresh Rate (ex. 60 hertz)
Under that is a check box marked "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display"
Uncheck this box and click "OK"
This will take you back to the screen resolution and you can change it from there. Change it to 1024x780 - this is the minimum display resolution for the installation disk.
When you have installed the software, you will want to change it back to your normal resolution
Note - if you want to use the EOS utility to download and edit your pictures, you will need to change it back to 1024x780. I just use the Windows Camera/Scanner wizard to download, and then use Adobe to edit the photos.
Hope this helps!

    While this solution enabled me to load the software, returning to the maximum resolution of my HP Mini netbook (1024 x 600) resulted in my being unable to display the bottom of each program's window, severely compromising most programs' functionality. But I still had access to a number of worthwhile functions.

SOURCE: EOS DIGITAL solution disk

clear you computer desktop of misc files. then right click on a blank spot on the desktop. select 'properties' then select 'settings' where you will find the video resolution screen. adjust to a higher resolution in one increment. apply, and if it does not look good to you then revert and take another setting up from that one.
this is an easy function to fool with. there will likely be several choices and they often change the correctness of the image as it fits on your particular display aspect ratio (width vs. hight) and the result will be a not very pleasing image due to shrinking or stretching. also, you may find a setting that your monitor does not like for one reason or another. it could cause your image to become unreadable. do nothing if it looks bad or you can't see it clearly, as it will always revert to original settings on its own unless you tell it you like it. so be sure to hesitate if you are not sure. if you select a setting that your monitor or driver can not handle, you might have an unreadable screen, which makes changing it back very hard.
good luck
mark.

Go to start/control panel/display/settings/adjust your screen resolution to high and then install.

Once installed, change your screen resolution back as low or high as you wish.

Hi

No, it means the screen resolution for your computer. These days most computers should have their resolution to 1024x768. If you don't know how to change it ask somebody who knows a little about computers to help, its not a problem with your camera.

Deleted images w/o pressing delete


It sounds like you reformatted the disk - this deletes all the files on the disk.

Here are several image recovery programs that can often recover images after a disk has been reformatted.

File Rescue
Disk Doctors
Uneraser
Data Rescue

You can download trial versions of these programs, and test to see ifthe program can find your images, but have to pay to register thesoftware before it will actually recover the images.

You may also need to use a card reader to read the data from the card, rather than read the card while it's in the camera connected to your computer. Card readers are relatively inexpensive (less than $20) and can be bought at most camera and computer stores.

Downloading to computer


Cliff notes version: Try it with the "Solution Disk" in the drive.

Detailed version: I had the same problem, but when I re-installed the "Solution Disk", it said, LEAVE THE DISK IN THE DRIVE. I turned my camera on -- connected to the computer and with the disk in the drive -- and the program started automatically, instructing me to click on the Upload button, which looks like a printer with a cable coming off it (it's to the right of the Delete button and underneath the slide-control that shifts from Camera mode to Preview on my A570IS; it will light up when it's ready).

Before uploading . . . Click on Menu (on camera) to verify your Direct Transfer options. Mine was set on Wallpaper, so it only uploaded the one image and automatically set it as my computer wallpaper. (A neat feature, but not what I was looking for.) Set it to "All images" or "New images" and click on the Upload (lit up) button on the camera.

Note: If it doesn't come up automatically, start the ZoomBrowser program and click on Tasks (to show the menu options below it). The first option is Acquire & Camera Settings; click on that. Then click on the appropriate item (Connect to Camera, Connect to EOS Camera, or Acquire images from Memory Card). You can set it to automatically launch by clicking that option on the main software page.

Finally . . . After it's working, confirm/modify your Preferences in the ZoomBrowser and Utility programs; even if you don't change anything, this will let you know how it's set up.

Uploading photos


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.

Installation of Canon Digital Camera Solution Disk. Ver.28.2


What version of Windows are you installing this on, or is it on a Mac?

Regardless, you can download an updated version of the software here:

http://tinyurl.com/22fgku

It's possible you have an outdated version that won't work with your OS, that's especially likely if you're running Vista. Or you could just have a corrupt version. Either way, the first thing to try is downloading the newest version for your OS and installing that. Let me know if you still get an error message when trying this (and what that error message is).
