Canon EOS 400D not transferring photos to computer


I am unable to transfer my photos from my 400d to my computer. I have an 8gb card with the photos on it. My computer is running Vista. I have downloaded the Vista drivers from the Internet and installed it on my computer. But it still doesn't work. I dont know is it's maybe a problem on my camera as this is the first time I'm downloading images with this camera.(I've only had my camera for about 2 weeks now)

It just seems like the application is freezing.

Please help

    I am also having this problem. I have been downloading for several months into Picaso and now it seems like the application is freezing and none of my picture programs are able to import the photos?

    Any suggestions?

Try installing or reinstalling the software on the CD ROM that came with the camera.

Are you using the camer directly plugged into the computer?
I use a Memory card reader, it is heaps better than using software, as the photos come up as a usb stick and you can do whatever you want with them.

SOURCE: date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d

The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.

Does Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi 400D Black 10.1MP DSLR Camera work with Vista

You should not have any problems.
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 can download the driver aand reinstall it from this link: 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.

Your canon must be making multiple folders on the card and the computer is only reading the first one. Use a card reader to download your pictures.

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.

EOS 400D Digital Camera Software

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.
