Question about Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens
For some reason, my computer all of a sudden does not recognize my camera's software when i plug it in to the computer. i was having trouble uploading before getting a "busy" message on the lcd, so i switched the connection to "pc connection." this is when the problem occured... help, please.
I had the same problem. I am not in any way a computer guy. The problem was, I had been downloading the pictures from my Canon digital Camera onto a Dell desktop with windows XP through the front USB port for years, no problems. One day, it just stopped working, and I would get a "unknown device" message when I went into the device manager. If I tried to open up the software that came with the camera and clicked "start image transfer" , I would get "camera not found" Anyway, I googled it, and found on one forum somewhere someone suggested the culprit could be a newly downloaded or upgraded version of realplayer. So I went into realplayer tools, preferences. I turned off the automatic updates and message center and re-booted as instructed. I plugged in the camera, and it worked. If the person who posted that information is reading this, I thank you. I would have NEVER figured that out, and would likely be buying a new camera for no reason.

I got a usb card reader and download the pictures that way. I tried reinstalling the drivers and used a different cable, but it still did not work. I think something happened to the usb port on the camera itself.

Reinstall the drivers, must unistall them first and get the updated ones. if this does not work, try to use a different usb port on your computer.
