Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon 1000d doesn't connect to my computer properly.

Hey there, i just bought my Canon 1000d, and i'm trying to connect it to my computer but it doesn't seem to recognise that the camera is connected, nothing pops up to allow me to download my photos. When i connect it and turn the camera on, it doesn't make the right beep to signal the computer knows it's connected, and if it did, it would say 'hardware not installed properly and may not function correctly' or something to that effect. Does anyone know what I can do, apart from putting my memory card straight into the card reader? Thanks.

Have you tried to upgrade/install EOS utility or driver that shipped with your Camera (on CD/DVD)?

My windows PC does not detect 1000D purchased pre used without eos disk utility and bundled softwares, is it a must to install these


You don't need any special software.
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 Picasa.

I have a canon eos 1000d and as i was shooting i turned on the noise reduction on and i think i manage to take another 3-4 shots after that.Then i realized for some reason the lens was properly focusing...


This is a long shot but you can try to remove the battery for a few minutes and that should "reset" your camera. Put the battery back in and see if it works, if not you can try calling Canon service at 1-800-652-2666 and they may be able to help you.
Good Luck!

Canon EOS 1000D will not connect even with solution disc instaled


To find out if the computer recognizes the camera, go to start>computer and see if the camera is listed. If it is, you can double click the icon to open it. Double click on the folder(s) until you get to the pictures. Click on the first picture, scroll down to the last picture and while holding down the shift key click on the last picture. Now right click on the pictures and you will get a menu. In Vista you can select copy or move them to a folder. In XP you will have to select send to>documents then move them to a folder. As for the program you installed, if it didn't leave a short on your desktop, go to start>all programs and look for it. If it's not there, it probably didn't install correctly.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Camera will not connect to computer properly.


do you have a program on your computer to open the file?? When you got your camera it should have come with a CD ROM that you would need to download to your computer so the pics would have a place to go . Mine is Lexmark Imaging Studio. You will need some form of program inorder to download the photos. If you have this them let me know so you can try something else
