When the camera is in auto mode, the busy sign shows up after each picture. I then have to wait 5 to 10 seconds before the next picture can be taken.


SD cards come in different levels. If you look at your card there should be a number on the front of the card. the higher the number means the faster the card. If you have a level 6 card then you shouldn't have the problem of getting a busy signal. your photos are large files and if your card is slow ie a level 3 then it takes time for the data to copy to it. So find yourself a level 5 or 6 card and you shouldn't have this problem.

I have a canon rebel xti, when I take several pictures a get a busy signal and have to wait before I take another picture (flash?) how do i take pictures, many in a row without getting a busy signal..as if...


Not sure, a couple things to check are the memory card you are using. If you have different card give it a try. Also, if you are trying to do burst mode there is a limit for your camera depending upon your settings. When you reach that limit the camera has to wait while all the data is written to the memory card.

After taking a picture the camera shows busy


It is writing the picture to the memory card, if you know it to be faster when you first used it the memory card may be wearing out replace with a new one. some electronics stores have options of faster cards as well. don't go overboard, but getting the next step up may make a good difference. Yet you may not notice a difference from mid quality to high quality unless we are talking dollars.

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?


This is the camera writing to the CF memory card. Perhaps your card is a lttle slow, so you will see the message. I use the Sandisk Ultra II CF, labelled as 15Mb/sec and it is very very fast indeed - I don't have any lag with my XTi. Try a different CF, if it is fast enough, the message will go away. Ensure you format the card on the camera too.

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?


If the flash fires a full charge(eg. in a dark environment) then this message will appear whilst it recharges. If the message appears all the time and you cannot take a photo there is most likely a problem. Try taking some pictures without the flash card to eliminate that first.

Canon 40D upload photos - camera busy -


When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.
