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

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.

I just bought the 430ex II flash and it won't fire on my Rebel XTI.... i read the manual but I'm not sure whats wrong, have any advice?


I assume that flash is turned on. 430ex flash will fire automatically only in AUTO mode. On manual modes you mus manually force the flash to fire.
If flash doesn't fire at all, consider to claim the vendor or let the vendor to check the flash mounted on your camera.

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.
