Did you first install the software on the computer, before you connected the camera to the USB connector? It is needed, so the computer knows what to say to the camera. Only then the camera can communicate with the computer.
Software, came on a cd with the camera, or they gave you a link where to download the software.

When you have your camera connected to a computer, you won't operate the camera. The busy light indicates that computer is attempting to communicate with the camera. You access your photos from the computer, not the camera.

Microsoft updates


It's not always a big deal if they don't download. All depends on what it is. Microsoft tends to have that issue sometimes but if you really want to download those updates you can always go onto their website and dowload them from there.

What does "BUSY" mean on my Canon Rebel T1i, while I'm trying to upload pictures onto my computer?


It means that the transfer is in process. It's letting you know that you shouldn't turn off your camera - it is busy!

I have my camera hooked into my computer to download pictures. I have done this before with no problems and now it says its busy and wont go onto my computer what can i do


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
