Re: EOS 400D Digital Camera Software
Hi If you bought your camera (400D) new it would have come with RAW conversion software on a disk. You can start by installing this. To get the photos off the camera you should be able to plug it in vis the USB cable that came with it. The better way would be to buy a card reader. This is a lot quicker, save on battery wear and tear, or save you plugging in the power.
Alternative software would be to buy Adobe Photoshop Elements for the RAW processing. This is a good start for most people.

You should not have any problems. ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.
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 cataloging program, such as Picsaa.
You can download the driver aand reinstall it from this link: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/EOS_400D/get37008.html
Make sure your existing Canon software, if any, is removed before installing the new driver.
If this doesn't work you can always purchase a card reader and extract your photos directly from the memory card.
Well, yes something has changed if the computer you are using is connected to the internet then it has had several auto updates to the software and or security anti virus.
Okay here is what I'll suggest. Uninstall the camera software and reinstall, go onto the Canon web site and download any (all) firmware updates for your camera and bring your camera back up to date.
Down load your pictures as normal.
If this doesn't work purchase a memory card reader and step around the camera all together, the card reader is plugged into a computer USB port and the memory card plugs into it. Make sure you get a card reader that has the correct port for your memory card.
The computer looks at this card reader as an external hard drive or Mass Storage Device.
You can then download your pictures to a file folder on your computer and open that folder in the camera software.
Myself I don't use the camera software it's generally clunky and offers far less control over the picture then what the industry standard for image manipulation offers.
Any Photoshop program from Elements to CS5 will offer far more control then any camera software. The nice thing about a card reader and Photoshop is that you can change cameras and the programing and card reader stay the same. This system doesn't care what name is on the wrapper (camera)
Have you got Windows Vista on your computer? I have the same trouble - not solved yet. The instruction says to install the software first and then connect the camera - but the software-disc is not for vista yet - you have to download an upgrade for the eos-utility-program on the canon support-homepage. I did this too, but installed the upgrade after I had connected the camera already. Now I try it once more by uninstalling all and do the process completely in the correct order.
