Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot correctly install my camera to my computer.

I installed the software just like it said on the manual. However when I followed the instructions for installing the cameras it doesn't work. The instructions say that after I connect the camera to the computer and turn it on, a pop-up menu appears on the right part of the toolbar. Once that menu disappears the camera should be installed. This is were the problem for me lies because after that pop-up menu disappears a dialog box appears that says Found New Hardware. If I try to install the camera using this it doesn't work and my instructions make no mention of this occurrence for Windows XP.

Re: Cannot correctly install my camera to my computer.

Once you installed the drivers and software from CD, once you connect the camera to USB port, it should automatically detect tyhe new device and configure the drivers and then say ready to use new device. Or at most say ready to use new device after reboot. You don't normally have to manually do anything. After this your My Computer should show an additional Disk Drive that represents your camera.

You can download the user manual (English) from:

The following is taken from the manual (page 61):
"Using the UC-E6 USB cable and PictureProject software provided with your camera,
you can transfer photographs and movies to a computer and view them. Before
images can be transferred (copied) to your computer, PictureProject must be
installed. For information on installing PictureProject, see the Quick Start Guide
and the PictureProject Reference Manual (on CD).
You can transfer images to a computer using a wireless LAN and play back the
pictures on computer. See "Wireless Transfer Mode" (c132) for more information."

Or you can use the Windows XP software. Step by step instructions on downloading and installing the software is given in the following website:

I have a new fuji finepix z70 camera i have followed instructions but no photos come up on laptop

Have you tried transfer to computer using a card reader ? If not transferring directly from camera it is more than likely the Fuji drivers are not correctly installed remove drivers and reinstall (check for correct drivers PC or Mac) Have you tried on another laptop? I would say it is more than likely a software problem. If still not working send details of you computer operating system and camera model number please.

How to dowload pictures from camera to mac

It's not practical to give full instructions on an email. Check the instruction manual for details.
Basically, you must install the drivers and program software in to the computer. When you connect the camera the computer will know the camera is present and establish a connection to it. You simply follow the prompts.
Most cameras come with PC based software and drivers. You will have to contact the camera manufacture to obtain the Mac software if it is available for your model of camera.

It wont download pictures to the computer

If I remember correctly, you needed to install the software and the drivers before connecting the camera by USB cable. It should all have been done with the camera not connected.
If you did it while it was connected, you must try uninstaling the software, and going into Device Manager and finding the specific driver fot that camera and Kodak, and removing that too.
Then restart your PC and start fresh.
Do the Software and Driver installation without the camera being installed or attached.
Once you have done the installation of software and driver, then, following the instructions, you can attach the camera and it should work this time.

I can't download pictures to my computer

How do I transfer pictures on my digital camera to my computer?

AFTER INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE FIRST, WITHOUT THE CAMERA BEING CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTER, DOTHE FOLLOWING: 1. Turn on the Camera, and change it o "Playback" mode. 2. Connect the camera with computer using USB port. 3. The LCD display of the camera turns off automatically, and the computer said " that a new hardware attached would be detected". 4. Go to "My Computer", and you can find a new drive saying "Removable disk". Double click it and you can find your pictures and videos inside the folder. Just copy them to your computer's hard disk. This procedure is slightly different for each digital camera model. You will need to refer to your instruction manual (Included on the CD-Rom that came with your camera) for exact instructions on how to properly install your camera and download your pictures. The main thing is to first install all of the software on the included CD-Rom disc to your computer BEFORE CONNECTING THE DIGITAL CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER. If you do not do this, Windows will put in its own driver and it is virtually impossible on some computers to get this driver out of Windows and install the proper one. However, if you do find yourself in this position. You can TRY the following. First unhook the camera from the computer, go to: Start / Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs. Next, look for all of the DIGITAL CAMERA software listed under the "Installed Software List" and uninstall that software. This is the same software you HAD installed after hooking up the camera to the computer. Once you have uninstalled ALL OF THE CAMERA software, reboot the computer, then re-install the software WITHOUT the camera connected to the computer. If this works, great! if not it is because Windows refuses to accept the new digital camera driver or Mass Media Driver needed and short of reinstalling the Windows software there is very little you can to do to make it work other than by purchasing a different model digital camera and installing the software FIRST before attaching the camera to the computer. If you think this is just a Cobra Digital problem, do a search on the internet. It occurs with almost all brands of digital cameras on the market, usually the ones that use proprietary drivers instead of mass media drivers.

Please help me

Most software programs for cameras, require you to load the software or part of the software first and follow the on screen instructions for when to add you camera lead to the computer. Otherwise windows may pick the camera up as new hardware and if it does not have the correct driver for it in its database it will not install correctly.

Uninstall the software program again, going to Control panel>add/remove programs and remove it from your system.

Insert the disk again - not the camera lead, and follow the instructions on the screen. It may ask you if you are connecting with a usb lead then give you further instructions. If you have more than one usb port available, when asked to insert the lead insert it into a different usb port to the one you have used previously, just in case windows has left behind some registry files that will conflict the installation.

Also check that the software you are loading onto your computer is compatible with your version of windows. (It should say one the disk).

I use a SD card in my camera and then insert the card into the card reader on my PC..saves all the messing around with software etc..., if you do not have a card reader on your pc, you can purchase a portable one that plugs into your usb port they are relativley cheap.

I hope this helps

By connecting the camera to a computer with the provided USB cable,
images on a card can be transferred to the computer. Some OS's (operating
systems) may need a special setup when connecting to the camera for the
first time. Follow the chart below. For details on the procedures in the chart,
refer to the “Reference Manual” on the CD-ROM and the “Software
Installation Guide” (included in the CD-ROM package).
Identifying the OS
Windows 98/98 SE
(Second Edition)
Windows 2000
Mac OS 9.0 - 9.1/OS X
*OS 8.6: See below.

Connecting the camera to a computer using the provided USB cable
Installing the USB
driver for Windows 98
Confirming the computer recognizes the camera
Downloading image files
Disconnecting the USB cable

Even if your computer has a USB connector, data transfer may not function correctly if
you are using one of the operating systems listed below or if you have an add-on USB
connector (extension card, etc.).
● Windows 95/NT 4.0
● Windows 98/98 SE upgrade from Windows 95
● Mac OS 8.6 or lower (except Mac OS 8.6 equipped with USB MASS Storage support
1.3.5 installed at the factory)
● Data transfer is not guaranteed on a home-built PC system or PCs with no factory
installed OS.
You can view images using: graphics applications that support the JPEG
file format (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.); Internet browsers (Netscape
Communicator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.); CAMEDIA Master
software; or other software. For details on using commercial graphics
applications, refer to their instruction manuals.
