Consider 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 the EOS utility or any other photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: My XT will not connect to Vista.

I had same problem. I tried the Canon customer support and got similar advice Muhammed gave, along with several additional steps to try. None of them worked. The only thing that worked was the above suggestion of setting the camera itself to the PTP for the communication setting of the menu.

It's too bad you have do do this work around, it does not allow for the same level of control as the pc communication setting.

open device manager, connect camera, it will be seen briefly with yellow triangle and exclamation mark. open it up and uninstall.
Disconnect camera and close windows down. Restart windows, connect camera and switch on, windows will then find it and install driver. Took me hours to figure this one out

SOURCE: Unable to download pictures thru Camera Window DC utility.

Skip the use of your software for downloading the camera files.
Buy and use a card reader.
You can download files from the card reader, and use an editor to fix your pictures the way you want.
Save a bunch of time and effort!

Hi,

Do you have a memory card reader or a memory card slot on your laptop or Desktop PC? If so, remove the memory card on your camera and then hook it to the slot on your computer.

It should be detected and then you can copy your files from the card to the computer.

If you still have problems, please post back.

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.
