Canon 30D - How to automatically capture the pictures on my HP Vista laptop

My son gave me his Canon 30D camera as he bought himself a new camera, but am wondering if I need something (hopefully not expensive) that would allow me to connect it directly to my HP Vista laptop so my pictures automatically download to my laptop.

Should just be a common USB mini cable, most cameras have this interface and Vista will automatically see the camera wiht its generic drivers. I use Picasa to download all my photos from 6 different cameras to my desktop and my laptop.

I have error code #99 on a canon eos 30d


Error 99 is Canon's default for several "connection" problems most common are dirty contacts between the lens and camera body. Another is the contacts in the battery compartment both the camera and the battery contacts should be cleaned.

The camera might not be able to read the memory card, download the pictures to your computer and format the memory card don't delete them format the card this function is found in the set up menu.

Formatting is one of the most important functions to keep the camera and memory card communicating AND is the most neglected function. Always format a new memory card and always format a memory card after downloading pictures to a computer. Format a memory card if it's been in another camera.

Cleaning the lens and body contacts can be done fairly easily with a clean pencil eraser, don't use a puffer on the body as you will blow dirt into the camera. With the lens removed hold the camera as much as possible with the lens opening pointed down and gently polish the gold contacts. Do the same with the lens contacts make sure both areas are clean and re install the lens to the body.

Possibly the most important "fix" is to update your camera's firmware. Go to Canon's web site (it can be a bit intimidating at first) and search through until you find the firmware updates for your camera. Download this generally they want you to download to a memory card then place the card into the camera and upload the new firmware updates.

The Canon 30D (in my opinion) is one of the best no frills, greatest working DSLR cameras Canon produced. Not saying the model's beyond are not it's just the 30D isn't loaded down with video functions. Great all around working camera, sorry my rant for the day.

Cheers have fun with your Canon 30D

During a lens chang with the canon 30d the camera appears to have shorted out and will not function.


I assume you have the newer version of the camera with auto focus and anti-vibration which moves the lens independent from the camera body. How do you know about the short? I do hope you have an extended warranty with the company so you can get it fixed. If not it would cost more to fix than to get a new camera. Good Luck

My canon eos 30d turns off after taking only one picture. i have three charged batteries that i have tried, so i dont think it is the battery. any suggestions?


In your set up menu there is a function that will allow the camera to auto power off. Normally this has several setting from a few seconds to several minutes. My first thought is that this has been altered and the camera has been set to power off in a few seconds.

The CCD camera canon eos 30d is dirty and the technician tells me I can buy a new ccd. This dirt is stuck. It's very noticeable when I take photos in clear sky .. Where sold CCD Camera Canon EOS...


If you have dirt on the sensor, it can be cleaned using special products. If you Google the words "how to clean an SLR sensor", you will find sites that explain the procedure with pictures and places where you can order the supplies needed. This is much less expensive than trying to replace the ccd sensor.
