Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Canon EOS 350D, Compact Flash card freezes my computer

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!

    I'm just guessing here..

    Some off brand compact flash cards do not conform to specs. They're missing a component. While they'll still work with many devices, they don't work with all.

    Since your card worked with a card reader, but not with your camera, while a different card worked with your camera, I'm guessing this is such a card.

    Try a card reader, and see if that works. If you try it with a card reader that is compatible with this type of card, it should work.

    If this is your problem, no point in ever trying to transfer pictures directly from your camera with this card. It doesn't work for a reason. There's nothing wrong with the card per se, it just isn't compatible with your camera when transferring, though it does work when taking pictures.

Instead of connecting via the camera, just use a USB card reader and put the CF card in that.

SOURCE: Video Format

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.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot S2 IS is not recognized on my iMac

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.

SOURCE: it will not open iphoto on my mac osx

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.

Err CF I have a Canon Rebel XT, how do i fix this error and what does it mean?


CF stands for compact flash which means you have an error with your memory card. Try removing and replacing your compact flash memory card. If that doesn't work you may need to format your memory card or replace it.

When the Compact Flash Card is inserted into the EOS camera a pin has bent over and a message reads "Error CF". Please advise cost to correct. Forgive me, but I am securing more than one quote...


Is it the compact flash card that has a pin bent? If so, I would replace the card with a new one. If the pin on the camera is damaged, then service at canonusa.com or 1-800-OK CANON is indicated.

CF probably relates to the Compact Flash memory card. It may be time for a new one. They're very inexpensive and a replacement would be the first step to discovering the problem.

Retrieving deleted pictures from compact flash card


If you're runnng a Windows system, you can try an undelete program such as the following:

http://www.freewarefiles.com/Undelete-Plus_program_24002.html


Usually, when you delete pictures from a flash device, it just sets a tag at the beginning of each file name telling the compact flash file system that the files can be overwrote. The most important thing to do at this point is not take any more pictures or copy any files to the card. Try downloading and installing that program [it's free] and choosing your card as the drive to scan [if you use a card reader this will be easy, if you use a camera, it may not show the camera or card as a device in My Computer].

CF pin


I'm afraid they break most of the time. You can try it though since the repair involves replacing the board that the connector is soldered to, $$$
