Make sure your camera is set to Auto mode (top left knob). Check your lens and make sure it is switched to "auto" and not "manual"(sliding switch near base of lens). Make sure your lens can rotate and move without being obstructed. Clean the lens contact by removing the lens and use 99% alcohol or lens cleaner sparingly to clean off the metal contacts.
You can also check your viewfinder focus, it has a small dial upper right, that you can fine tune to focus to your own eyesight. If it is way off, your view will always appear to be out of focus.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Windows 7 doesn't uploas images from Canon 20D

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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

I have a canon eos 20D and the camera don`t accept 2, 4, 8 GB CF i download the last actualization and the problam is the same can you help me with this problam thanks


I have a Canon 20D in my fleet and have used 1 gig card in it almost exclusively however I did use a 2gig and a 4gig when shooting RAW + jpg. I would think that you haven't formatted the card for the camera even if it's a new card and has never been used you need to format the card to the camera you are going to use it in.

Autofocus function will not work on Canon 17 40mm 1.4 EF lens


Since the problem is limited to this lens, I highly doubt that you would have to replace the cameras AF sensors.
Since you only have the problem with this lens, I am afraid that you will have to get the lens repaired. Is the lens also 3 years old? Did you get it with MACK extended warranty?
Sometimes, Canon do these kinds of repairs for free, if they discover that there was some manufacturing error that caused it to fail. So be sure that you get it to a certified canon workshop. 
I hope this helps,

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:

Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DG AUTOFOCUS PROBLEM


I would send it into sigma. They are in NY,
They are really quick about checking things out and I have neverhad them charge me to look at a lens and tell me whats up. aot of times they will just fix it while it there is it looks like something is worn out from normal use.
its a great lens. Some would say its a slower focus. than the Canon brand and you do get what you pay for but its hard to spend as much on canon lenses as they want. :)

Hope that helps,
Caleb

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!
