Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.
I love this camera, but this is the problem. I am on my second body within three months. I had to exchange the first one now this one I am sending for repair.
PROBLEM: After about the same number of transfering images to computer, the USB port on the camera body does not react to the USB cord being plug into it. I have done all the possible solutions with Canon, and now I must send it into repair. This would not bother me, but this is the second camera body that did the exact same thing. Canon tells me this is not common, I can't thank of anything I am doing wrong, but I am open to advise
Have you tried replacing the USB cord? You also might want to try getting an inexpensive CF card reader so you can remove the memory card from the camera and then just plug the both of them into your computer's USB slot and upload from there.

I assume you mean one of the pins inside the camera body itself? This is quite a common problem and I believe it will have to be dealt with by a Canon Repair Centre. However it is not the end of the camera and is worth having done although I cannot say what the are charging at this time.
If your camera uses a compact flash card, then something is wrong with it. Possible causes:
card needs formatting in camera (this will erase it)
one or more pins inside camera are bent.
Card was erased or formatted on computer instead of camera.
I believe there are 2 modes of usb transfer that you can pick in the camera. They are set somewhere in the menu in the options. If you go through the menus thoroughly you'll find it. One option is for connecting the camera directly to a printer and the other is for computer transfer (there might also be an Auto setting but I don't remember for sure). Make sure that setting is set for computer transfer. If that doesn't fix your problem, re-install or update EOS Utility / ZoomBrowser.
Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.
Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.
You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".
It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.
But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).
