Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I have a Canon EOS 350D and I can't get the pictures off of my compact flash card via the USB connection. I tried using a different compact flash card and it connected no problem, leading me to assume that it is not a problem with either the computer, the connection or the camera. I also went to a print shop where I connected the compact flash card directly their computer, and it loaded the images from the card without any problems.
All the parts seem to be working fine, but when I connect my camera to my computer with the malfunctioning compact flash card and try to load them using either iphoto or image capture (mac osx,) the camera's compact flash indicator blinks indefinitely and the lcd reads busy. Also, both Image Capture and Iphoto freeze up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Instead of connecting via the camera, just use a USB card reader and put the CF card in that.

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.
Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.

Simple fix...use a separate card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can move them to iphoto.

Get yourself a Card reader. Take the card out of the camera and plug it into the mac (Your printer may already have one built in) The card is a USB mass storage device and should pop up onto the desktop without bothering with the camera. iPhoto will not open automatically so just drag the card contents onto the iPhoto icon in the dock. It will then open up and transfer all the pictures automatically.
I haven't plugged my camera into the computer now for about 3 years.
