I last downloaded pictures from my camera Christmas day. When I plug in the USB cable to the camera and my computer, nothing happens. My computer is not recognizing the camera. I have never had this problem before and have always been able to get them off. I have tried different cables, and have the same problem. Any other device I have plugged into the USB ports, work fine, such as my MP3 player and such. I searched on Cannon's website for drivers, but it said there were no drivers avaliable for the XP systems or even required

You don't need any special software to use your camera. 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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picsaa.
Hi there here's the steps on how to reset your cannon rebel xti's settings :)
1.Press the "Menu" button on the back of the Canon Rebel XT and to the left of the LCD screen to access the main menu. You will notice five tabs across the top of the screen.
2.Push the "Jump" button, which is located below the "Menu" button on the back of the camera, until the last tab is selected. The last tab is "Set-up Menu 2," and has a symbol of a wrench next to a hammer and a "2."
3.Press the down arrow button on the back of the camera until "Clear All Camera Settings" is highlighted, and then press the "Set" button. The "Set" button is located in the middle of the arrow buttons, which are found to the right of the LCD screen. A confirmation screen that reads "Clear All Camera Settings" appears.
4.Push the right arrow button to highlight "OK," and then press the "Set" button to reset all of the settings to their defaults.
Okay at least the memory card isn't locked or it wouldn't be taking any pictures. Couple things one is did your format the memory card before using it? Do you format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer? Do you just unplug the USB cable or remove the memory card from a card reader before doing a safe disconnect? What I believe is that you delete and delete and delete pictures from the card and it's not corrupted with a lot of useless data residue. Short answer to your problem is format the memory card in the camera you intend to use it in. Have a great day
Most Canon cameras you just plug it in the computer and away it goes... If that doesn't work set it to playback mode and then plug it into the USB port. If that still doesn't work, open up My Computer on your computer and see if it shows up, if it does right click it and make sure the Auto Play is set to transfer the pictures and is not turned off.
