    When I try to connect the camera to my computer to upload pictures it says that there is no camera connected to the computer. The busy message keeps flashing as well. I have uploaded pictures from this card before so I know that isn't the problem.

    I connect my usb to the camera and it reads busy. Is there a solution? I am unable to download photos.



    Thank you

    Everything was fine just a few days ago-now whenever I try to download any pictures from the camera to the computer I get a message saying that the camera or the scanner is being used right now-please try again later. This seems to be a Canon problem being that when I googled the issue on every link everyone had the same Canon Digital Rebel-haven't come across other models that are giving people the same problem.

I posted with the same problem. I was reading the software guide that came with my camera. I ended up going to the menu on the camera and setting the camera's communication. It worked! I can now upload my pictures to my computer again.

Where is the communication feature for the rebel XTi?  I can not find it

My camera "busy" sign was flashing when i tried to connect it to my comp to upload photos. I also went to the camera's "menu" setting and went to "communication" and changed the setting. after weeks of not being able to upload photos it worked like a charm!

Posted on May 05, 2008

What i did for my own problem was i just took out the battery, charged it, let the camera sit overnight and when i woke up and tested it there was no problem anymore!

Where did you buy the card? It's possible that it's a counterfeit card.

Hopefully this helps...

I had a similar problem a while ago. For some reason the compact card was not recognised . If you have an external reader, download the pictures through this. Then try a different card, if ok then reformat the original card using the camera.

Put photos on facebook? Not from phones, or cameras with simscards, just old photos.


Scan them onto your computer, save them to your computer. Go to your facebook page, hit upload photo, go to browse button, go to where you stored your pics ie. photos or desktop, find the pic you want to upload then click on it, hit ok and it should upload for you.

Try resetting the camera in the menu. If that still doesn't work there might an issue with your USB port and/or Main PCB. Contact a Canon authorized service center for assistance.

Trying to upload photos from my canon rebel xt, but a busy signal keeps flashing. What to do?


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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

You can also get the latest version of Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

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.

My canon Rebel XTi keeps flashing busy and won't let me take a picture


I just called Canon because I was having the same problem. They suggested putting the camera in the sports mode. The reason it flashes busy is because there is a buffer period after taking pictures where the camera needs to store the information to the disk or if using a flash, then the flash needs to recharge. If you have plenty of natural light, then the full auto (the green square) mode can be selected because the flash won't have to recharge. If you are using the portait mode, then you will have to wait for the buffer period for the flash to recharge and the information to be stored to the disk.

Wont upload pics


I tend to NOT use the cables that come with my cameras. They are slow, and often incompatible with whatever operating system or other software you have online.

I would simply take out the camera's memory card (XD or SD or whatever it may be,) and buy a $10 USB card reader for that chip format. It's faster, simpler, better, and you don't have to deal with the camera's proprietary software. Hope this helps!
