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 such as Picasa.

SOURCE: My XT will not connect to Vista.

I had same problem. I tried the Canon customer support and got similar advice Muhammed gave, along with several additional steps to try. None of them worked. The only thing that worked was the above suggestion of setting the camera itself to the PTP for the communication setting of the menu.

It's too bad you have do do this work around, it does not allow for the same level of control as the pc communication setting.

SOURCE: Download pictures from my Rebel EOS to my computer

Take a look at Picasa, from Google. Also take a look at Irfanview. I haven't used Irfanview in over a year (since I moved from a PC to a Mac - it's the one piece of software I really miss on my Mac), but before I moved to the Mac it was my primary photo organizer and viewer. It's a very impressive program for free software from an individual programmer (Irfan).

Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

SOURCE: I am missing my installation cd for my Canon EOS

go to this page, confirm it is taking you to the windows 7 version. previous versions of windows, like Vista, will probably not allow you to transfer photos without first loading this utility.

I am trying to transfer pictures from my Cannon EOS Rebel T1i to my Mac book and I can't get it to work


When you connect the camera to the Mac, you must have the camera powered ON. THe Mac will automatically recognize the camera and will open iTunes to download the pictures. IF this does not happen, you may have a bad cable or a bad USB port on the Macbook. Try a different cable, or try a different port. Good Luck.

Can't download pictures


Two suggestions:-

1) Go to the Canon website, follow links to Support/Downloads and see if there's a firmware update for you camera. Check if there's a forum where someone else has had the same problem and resolved it. Finally, use their "Contact Us" facility to see if they can offer a solution.

2) It doesn't resolve but it should get round the problem and that's buy a universal card reader.
