Re: Importing pictures using EOS utility

I had the same problem, I think you were missing a driver. if you got to canon usa's page for drivers and downloads you should be able to find it :

CANON EOS Rebel XSI is not being seen by EOS Utility. I can't update firmware, I can't download pictures, nothing. It doesn't see that it is hooked up. I have tried updating the EOS Utility...

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 any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto, Windows Photo Gallery, or ZoomBrowser.

Importing Images

The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer. The EOS Utility software that came with the camera will work, as well as a number of third-party software packages. GOOGLE "raw file conversion Canon digital rebel" to see the options.

The other option is to take your photos in JPEG format (not RAW). Your computer can 'read' any JPEG format image.

Hi! I have a Canon Powershot A530 digital camera. When I try to import pictures to my laptop(OS-Windows Vista), I get an error message "No new photos or devices found". Please provide me with a solution.

1. Try to reinstall your camera driver / software again.

2. Restart the PC/Laptop.

3. Now, connect the two devices for importing pictures!

please rate this advice if it! :)

Importing photos (previously successfully)stops

One way to solve problems like this is to use a card reader/writer. This will get your pictures to the computer from the card reader which appears as another drive. Most newer card readers need no drivers.

If you still want to use your camera to copy files to the computer, then you should uninstall the program and re-install according to the instructions.

How can i print date samp in photoz..without using 4x6 photo in my canon poer shot 100s camera..

you can do that if you're doing direct printing (camera to printer) using the caera transfer settings, or if you want to save them to your omputer, you need to download the photos using the EOS utility (comes with the camera) and add the [date & time] stamp from the software settings

Problem import picts via sd cardreader (taken with eos 450d)

Some card readers struggle with high capacity (SD-HC) cards and indeed some older devices.
If you (or a friend) has a lower capacity card (less than 2GB) try that in you camera and then pc.

You can purchase a VERY cheap USB card reader (c.£10 max) and it should sort your problem - I hope!
