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)

Cheers have a great time with your camera

Safely remove hardware unknown error!


Unplug the camera if it's connected, then shut down and restart your computer.
In the future you might want to 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

There is a mode in which you can lock up the mirror and shutter blades so that the sensor is exposed. Use a appropriate cleaning kit and avoid touching the sensor.

Error 99 comes while taking photographs


This could well be a serious issue, which you'd need to send to your manufacturer to fix, however there are a few things you could try first:

Take your lens off and with a clean rubber (like on the end of a pencil), clean the contacts of both the camera and the lens.

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.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC FZ50 Vs. Canon EOS 400D


When it comes to DSLR, Canon scores better than Panasonic. Have a look at dpreview.com for pic samples from both the cameras.
I own a 350D for the last 2+ years. I havent come across any maintenance costs. However, the urge to upgrade is always there :)
