Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
I installed the EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk v 13.1 on my computer running WinowsXP, but the computer is not picking up the camera and I can not download images. I reinstalled - did not help. I also tried trying to install the camera (using the hardware install wizard) with abovementioned CD but it could not find a driver for the camera on the CD> Thank you
This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged. You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port. With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.

Ive got a brand new vista laptop. using a card reader dusnt help. ive tried it on loads of different computers and it doesnt even say anythings plugged in, ive connected it directly to the camera aswell still nothing, someone told me i need to download a driver or something, ive downloaded the sort ware fine and everything, in XP and vista and even tried it on windows 2000 (didnt work tho its too old lol) but yeh nothings working, its not a problem with the usb connection or reader, nor the camera i think the driver download suggestion is the best so im going to try it.

One problem i noticed are bent pins and i find it really risky to take out the CF card and insert to card reader and after downloading ,re-inserting the CF back into camera.It is a design problem and i wish they can correct it!In the meantime,i love the usb way!

Try plugging in the camera to the usb port and then go to the control panel. Under scanners and cameras, look for the connected camera. I think if you right click on it and go to properties, you may be able to get the windows file download wizard to start when the camera is first plugged in.
