Canon 20D. Says "Err

Error 99 is a result of an electronic communication problem normally between the lens and the camera body.

Use a red pencil eraser to "polish" the contacts even if they look clean do it again.
Take care to keep dirt out of the camera and lens bodies.

Another thing is often times the camera firmware needs to be updated to move on from this.

Another thing is the CF cards? The 20D was in an era where pretty well the larges CF card was a 2gig,I use several 1gig however if you have updated your cards to say an 8gig the firmware just can't handle the card.

Okay moving on clean the lens and body, update firmware, make sure the CF card isn't beyond the camera capabilities and last if all that stuff didn't work the it's possible the actual sensor is really dirty and needs cleaning.

The worst case scenario is that the shutter has failed. The Canon 20D is only good for 60,000 actuation's.

Hope this give you a few options

Check to make sure that you don't have it set on continuous. Check the lcd display and see if the shutter icon showing a mulitple as opposed to single frame image.

I have a canon eos 20D and the camera don`t accept 2, 4, 8 GB CF i download the last actualization and the problam is the same can you help me with this problam thanks

I have a Canon 20D in my fleet and have used 1 gig card in it almost exclusively however I did use a 2gig and a 4gig when shooting RAW + jpg. I would think that you haven't formatted the card for the camera even if it's a new card and has never been used you need to format the card to the camera you are going to use it in.

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed

Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!

Make sure the camera is OFF when placing the battery in it, and have the mode dial (Top left side) set to the green rectangle for automatic mode. Then turn ON.

Connection Problem

I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too. Good luck!
