Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens

1 Answer

My computer is not recognising my EOS 20D!

I have never had any problem with downloading photos, but now, despite having re-loaded the software (Ver 8.0) and Canon digital photo solution, my computer won't pick up the camera. What have I done differently this time?

    Same problem here. Running Windows Vista Business with EOS 20D. When I plug camera in it says that it's loading icons but then stops midway and then says something like device not recognised. Camera also does not appear under My Computer as a device when plugged in unlike my other camera etc.

Hi I have exactly the same problem. I'm running Windows Vista Business as the OS and have installed the disk that came with the camera with no avail.

It keeps recognising it as a scanner, but I cannot open the pics. I've tried different cables as well. No use.

You don't need any special software to use your camera.

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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Lost my canon 20d software that came with camera


All of the software, manuals and drivers are available on Canon's website.

ZoomBrowser is the the only software that may present installation problems if a previous copy is not already installed on your computer. Any old copy of ZoomBrowser will allow the most current version to be loaded from Canon.

Can i get my eos 20 to automatically add my details such as name and copyright info to each image as its takenor do I have to add manually via the PC


There is no way to enter it on the camera, but some photo management programs like Photoshop Bridge, Lightroom, Aperture, etc have the ability to encode the photo's exif data on import of the photos to your computer automatically.

Lost installation software for my 350d and I now have a new pc and i am unable to upload my pictures, as the computer will not recognise the camera. camera was bought in us but i am currently in europe if...


most ALL cameras(photo)do not need software to load to a pc(exept maybe vist)
in any case,go to the makers website and brows to support or downloads,they will have software and drivers.

your other option,which in my opinion works the best on any computer or camera,is simply to buy a usb cardreader for your memory stick.

insert the cam memory into usb adapter,and plug into ANY comp.
it's that simple!!

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:
Canon 20D Firmware Download
Hope this helps!

Canon 20d raw to pc


Have you ever been able to view the pictures on your pc?
Have you got a card reader that can view the card contents externaly from the camera?
I found the Canon software is quite as happy from a card reader as it is reading from the camera. (I have the next model up, 30D.)
Have you tried upgrading your software, or tried using a third party image program to read the raw files?
Over to you!

Connection Problem


I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too. Good luck!
