Hi.

I think we are talking about a Canon EOS. I see that the model was not provided.

When Canon cameras show busy, that means that the camera is waiting for the flash to charge up, or is still trying to power the lens. Normally this will last at most few seconds.

Try first removing the internal batteries for about ten or twenty minutes. This will drain power completely and reset the camera.Before powering up remove any external flash and test using different lens.

If that does not work, that means that either the battery or an internal part (eg. the internal flash capacitor or main board) is faulty.
If the problem happened using a battery grip, then battery is the first part to investigate.

Regards.

Ginko.

Fuji finepix a 345 is not showing dsc photo folder when connected to pc. PC can't read file header. Memory card shows full (less 8 mb). cannot access photos. Kindly guide what is to be done. Thx.


Consider 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 such as Picasa.

Everytime I try to download photos it says camera is not connected or is busy which is not the case. I t has worked once but is really annoying now. Camera is new. Same message fro your software and Adobe...


It is working ... there are too many photos on the memory card to respond quickly.
Look at the memory card and find the "Class" number inside a circle.
It is probably a "4", which is a slow card.
Obtain a class 6 card and it will load faster.
A new code is emerging... look for a Class 10!

Canon EOS 400D SLR - Err 99


Try going into the menu and turning off the lock for shooting without a lens. Then try firing it without a lens to see if it works. Very often a lens problem can cause the Err 99 message.

Also, check to make sure the pop-up flash is not stuck down. That could also cause it.

Unless you have used your camera a LOT, it shouldn't be a bad shutter. They usually only quit after many years of use. I think Canon quotes 125,000 shots as the normal life of a shutter in a digital SLR.

*ist D Grip problem


i have yet to recieve the b-grip for my *ist so i can't tell you if i have the same problem. i do have a thought on the matter and an interest in the fix as i have a grip on order. have either or both of you upgraded to firmware 1.1? that is not listed as something the firmware update remedies. however, i understand that manufacturers often include fixes for less conspicious problems without listing them. if you haven't upgraded it's worth a shot, you have nothing to loose as long as you use FRESH batteries. hope i helped. have fun shooting.
