Driver for Canon EOS 400D

I installed the EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk v 13.1 on my computer running WinowsXP, but the computer is not picking up the camera and I can not download images. I reinstalled - did not help. I also tried trying to install the camera (using the hardware install wizard) with abovementioned CD but it could not find a driver for the camera on the CD> Thank you

    My new, Canon-refurb 400D simply refuses to connect to my XP PC via USB. The PC detects the new device but as it is shown as 'dcp connect', there are no drivers for it. I've read in other forums that this may be caused by the camera having been left in Service Mode by mistake (by Canon technicians). Anybody else come across that? If so, is there a user solution? Thanks

    Hi Sean here,

    Just bought a new Canon EOS Rebel XSi - EOS 450D, and for some reason on a new laptop, the Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk, Ver 18.1 won't install. I just tried to install it, but all it does is give me an error message regarding: .NET Framework 2.0, and something to do with it being tied into Vongo? Does anyone know what that is? is it a program, that was pre loaded on to my laptop?

    I tried several times to load the software, but after the first time, it pops up a help window, that allows me to repair the problem, or uninstall it. I've tried numerous times to repair it, even going step by step by way of the Microsoft website.

    But, it didn't seem to help. It acts like it is fixing the problem, says all is well when it's done, then I click the finish icon, and the install wizard gives me all this jargon about how the programs I selected to have installed, didn't install corrrctly, etc. Just want to move my pictures, from the new camera to my lap top.

    I do have a USB card reader, would using that instead help any? It also says in the manual, that I can't install the transfer cable provided, & turn on the camera w/out loading the solution disk first.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    ~Sean

This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged. You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port. With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.

One problem i noticed are bent pins and i find it really risky to take out the CF card and insert to card reader and after downloading ,re-inserting the CF back into camera.It is a design problem and i wish they can correct it!In the meantime,i love the usb way!

    I agree with Guest but i have a problem..if you click on the camera and go to explore,you will see all those files ready to be copied.You can select all and then "Copy to " wherever you want..Now the problem...Windows cannot read the RAW files and will transfer those files as JPEG...

    I tested my camera on settings : RAW and Large Fine..It will see the RAW and change it to another Large Fine.What you get are double copies of everything in jpeg format inside your PC.The original RAW still exists in your CF card so keep it and if anyone here sees this problem,their input is very much needed!Thanks..

Try plugging in the camera to the usb port and then go to the control panel. Under scanners and cameras, look for the connected camera. I think if you right click on it and go to properties, you may be able to get the windows file download wizard to start when the camera is first plugged in.

My windows PC does not detect 1000D purchased pre used without eos disk utility and bundled softwares, is it a must to install these


You don't need any special software.
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 Picasa.

Switched to MAC - have EOS40D and SX100 - will not download SX100


Yes, you need to install the SX100 driver software as well. I wouldn't overwrite older versions of the Canon software, though, so do a selective install if you can.

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.

My computer is not recognising my EOS 20D!


Hi I have exactly the same problem. I'm running Windows Vista Business as the OS and have installed the disk that came with the camera with no avail.

It keeps recognising it as a scanner, but I cannot open the pics. I've tried different cables as well. No use.
