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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I cannot get my camera to turn on


Before you can download pictures to your computer, you have to install the software that came with the camera. On older operating systems, on the CD will be the driver you need, so the OS recognises what you are connecting to the USB connector. From Windows 7 and up, the driver will be in the OS and the computer will recognise the camera, after you with it on. But be aware as long as the USB cable is in the camera, you won't see a thing on the camera. Lots of camera's ar also charged through the USB connector, so unless the camera gets a signal you are connected to the computer, it won't start communicating, so it looks like nothing is connected.

If the camera won't turn on, after you pulled out the usb cable (from the camera) please first charge the battery first.
Then try again.

Windows 7 doesnt recognise USB cable for traveler dc-6300 what I need to do


The official specifications for the camera don't state it is compatible with windows 7. A few things you can try to connect:
  • change the usb port you are plugging into.
  • try a different usb cable if you have one available
if neither of these things work you might be better off purchasing a card reader that is compatible with windows 7. these can be found for relatively little money. Then you can put the SD card from the camera into the card reader and download photos that way.

Windows vista pc does not recognise my canon 350d?


Go to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and see if any of the USB connections has an exclamation mark next to it. If so, select it and delete it. Close the dialog box. Now plug in your USB again and see if it automatically recognises the device (camera). Of course, you have to turn on the camera after connecting the USB (I've met people who have been stumped for days before realising that the camera has to be switched on in the first place)

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.
