What is the best option?

Hi! During last vacation trip my wife dropped the camera and broke one part which is a little lid that covers the pit for a memory card. What would you suggest to do? I bought it more than a year ago. I do not think I still have any warranty for the product. I will appretiate your response! Thanks

My camera is from Digital Concepts. I lost the botom cpver of it because it broke off.i pit in batteries and decided to put tape of it so they wont come out. I try to turn it

But it does not work.
Every battery cover of a camera has a switch, powering down the camera when the cover is opened. This is to prevent damage to the memory card. You should not remove batteries while the camera is writing to the memory card.
Find the little switch and press it. Then try to switch on.

I cannot get Remote Shooting option when I loaded the software for my Canon 350D (Rebel XT) camera on a computer with Vista. The software loads the Remote Shooting option for computers with Windows XP....

According to Canon, camera communication is supported by Vista, like you have experienced. See:

The software that ships with the XT does not support Vista. To enable this support, you need to download an update from Canon. Click the following link and select Vista as your O/S from the drop-down box at the top:

Note that there are also several updates there that you may want to download and install as well.

I loved my XT until my wife dropped it on vacation a couple months ago.

Hope this helps.

Two sets of photos?

I was having similar issues. My memory card was ejecting itself unkowingly. So some of your pictures are on camera memory (fills up fast) and some are on the memory card. My card was randomly ejecting with the door closed. So you never know if you are taking shots on camera of disk memory. You also seem to be missing phots when reviewing because the card is out of place. I am sending my camera to Nikon today.

Date time battery casing

i guess you cannot buy this thing anywhere but from the Canon Service Center. Just present the item so with your warranty card and let them do the work. Since dropping it voids the warranty, they'll have to charge you with the hardware replacement and on the service. i think this is the best thing that you can do.

Please Rate Thanks!

My lens won't come out.

It sound like the lens mechanism was damaged during camera's drop. Only way (to my regret)is to sent it to be repaired in a professional lab.
