Go to this page, and select "Drivers and Dwonlaods" tab. Wait 20 seconds, then select Windows XP. Then download your driver.

If the camera still doesn't download with the driver, then next recommend using a compact flash card reader instead to download your photos (been using one for years, and highly recommend it instead of downloading directly from the camera).

Why can't I download my photos? I have had no problem in the past. I had a virus which was removed, and since then a few things have not worked. Its windows XP


If you can view the photos on your camera, and they are stored on a removable device (such as a Sandisk), then you should be able to load the removable device into a computer and copy the photos using Explorer. If this does not work with Windows XP, it could be due to the fact that Windows XP is no longer supported with upgrades. I would try to upload the photos to a computer running a current version of Windows (scan the removable device for malware before uploading to the computer). If that works, it's time to upgrade your computer. (I upgraded my XP computer to a Linux OS.)

hiyou have to load the drive file in your new lap top. or you just can use an external memory card reader which i recommend more for the sake of your camera. the camera's usb port are not that strong. if you just plan to download picture file. Please use external one. It cost less than $10 or free sometime in fry's electronic.

Problems downloading from camera using windows 7 - error message say windows XP required - is it possibel to upgrade software to be compatible with windows 7


If your OS is Win7 64 bit, then incompatibility must be occur because Windows XP use 32bit Operating System and driver software usually only special for each OS (x32 or x64). About upgrading the software, how will you upgrade while you can't even install the basic software in your PC ? The choice you have is find another driver that compatible with your OS, you can search via Google, and I hope you are lucky enough to get it available or even free to download.
If you still want to upgrade, then the Windows7 is the one to be upgraded so you can use XP Mode system. You must have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate to run Windows XP Mode. You can visit microsoft.com for details.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

My Cannon EOS rebel XT isn't able to locate the driver for Windows 2007 when I connect it to my computer.. I have uploaded all the software from the **** that came with it and the Cannon webpage states...


Try NOT using a driver.

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.
