Re: EOS DIGITAL solution disk
Clear you computer desktop of misc files. then right click on a blank spot on the desktop. select 'properties' then select 'settings' where you will find the video resolution screen. adjust to a higher resolution in one increment. apply, and if it does not look good to you then revert and take another setting up from that one. this is an easy function to fool with. there will likely be several choices and they often change the correctness of the image as it fits on your particular display aspect ratio (width vs. hight) and the result will be a not very pleasing image due to shrinking or stretching. also, you may find a setting that your monitor does not like for one reason or another. it could cause your image to become unreadable. do nothing if it looks bad or you can't see it clearly, as it will always revert to original settings on its own unless you tell it you like it. so be sure to hesitate if you are not sure. if you select a setting that your monitor or driver can not handle, you might have an unreadable screen, which makes changing it back very hard. good luck mark.

Problem is the camera firmware isn't compatible with the software possible needs a Canon free update or purchase a card reader and download your pictures stepping around the camera.
The computer will look at this card reader with the memory card installed as an external hard drive or memory device.
Download you pictures and then do a safely eject or eject before removing the memory card, once back in the camera remember to format the memory card this give the camera a nice clean surface to work with again.
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).
Select the "Start" menu in the lower left corner of your computer monitor screen. Select "Control Panel", then double-click on "Display".
Click on the upper "Settings" tab, then move the slider bar to the right, to at least 1024 x 768 pixel. Then hit Apply or OK. This will increase the screen resolution of your computer monitor so that it will be compatible with the Canon software.
Sorry this is a late response - I just had the issue with the T1i solutions disc ver. 20.0. on Windows XP Right click your desktop and select Properties Go to the Settings Tab Under "Display" you should see it is selected to your default monitor or Plug and Play monitor. Under that, you will see Screen Resolution on the left hand side. If the slide bar will not allow you to change this any higher, then at the bottom of the window you will see an option for Advanced Write down your current screen resolution so you can change it back after installation is complete. Click on Advanced - You will see tabs at the top - click on the tab marked "Monitor" This will show you Monitor Type - under thatyou will see Screen Refresh Rate (ex. 60 hertz) Under that is a check box marked "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" Uncheck this box and click "OK" This will take you back to the screen resolution and you can change it from there. Change it to 1024x780 - this is the minimum display resolution for the installation disk. When you have installed the software, you will want to change it back to your normal resolution Note - if you want to use the EOS utility to download and edit your pictures, you will need to change it back to 1024x780. I just use the Windows Camera/Scanner wizard to download, and then use Adobe to edit the photos. Hope this helps!
Go to your control panel. Click start/control panel/display/settings. There you will find your screen resolution slider. Slide all the way up to high resolution and apply settings. Your icons and everything on your screen will be smaller.
Install disk and go back and set your resolution as low or high as you wish once installed!
I had the same issue with my Netbook. In order to get the software onto my netbook I had to use an external monitor. I set up my HD monitor as the main monitor through the graphics driver. I set the main monitor from notebook to monitor. Then I installed the package and set the main screen back to notebook. I can use the EOS Utility which allows my to download my raw images and remotely control my camera, but I cannot run DPP. I hope this is of help
No, it means the screen resolution for your computer. These days most computers should have their resolution to 1024x768. If you don't know how to change it ask somebody who knows a little about computers to help, its not a problem with your camera.
