Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Camera not recognized by PC

I just bought a Rebel XTI and have installed the software, rebooted, and read the manual, but every time I try to transfer prints to my PC I get the message "camera not recognized". The manual says to set it to "communication" prior to transfering pictures, but my camera does not have a communication option.I have tried going to transfer order and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Hi
Your best bet would be to go out and buy a card reader. This solves your problem and save you in other ways. First of all the whole downloading process is a lot quicker. Second your save wear and tear on your battery. Three no need to plug in the power cord if you don't want to run on battery power. lowers the risk of damage to your camera and possible accidents by the cable getting pulled and taking your camera with it.

Card reader are really cheap.

Regards

I have Canon Rebel XTI. When I connected it to a USB port, the AutoPlay in Windows Vista came up and asked what I wanted to do with the pictures. I always selected copy to a specific folder. Now,...


Ok, here is what I want you to do. Get the "Drivers" for your camera, put them in a handy directory under the root of C:\ (C:\CanonDrivers) Now, go to the Device Manager, go to the USB tab, now remove and delete all drivers from here, all. Now reboot. At desktop next, NOW plug in & turn ON your camera, it should now be "Detected", the PC, should make a "Boing Boing" sound, and it will either A: Automatically Install drivers. or B: ASK, for them, if so, point it to the directory, and it should complete. Now you should "See" you Camera in "My Computer". you may need to reboot. but now you should be able to use it.

Canon Rebel XTi not recognized when plugged into usb


Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

Busy signal when trying to import images to my pc


I have had the same problem with getting a busy signal after plugging in the USB cord. Usually turning it on and off a few times, giving it a few seconds in between, works for me.
Also, have you tried just going into My Computer and clicking on the drive for the USB you've got you're camera plugged into and transferring the photos onto your pc from there? They only go onto your pc, not into a program but you can get them into one from there.

EOS Utility does not recoganize Canon Rebel Xti


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.
