Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Canon EOS-300D not seen by computer/not turning on

We cannot use the download pic software as error message says USB in use. Now when we go to turn on camera, nothing happens with fully charged Li-ion battery. Do you think actual battery is dead/no longer holds charge or something more major? My daughter just got back from a trip to the Bahamas where the weather was VERY HOT and she plugged battery charger in there. Any chance heat/diff. plugs effected battery/camera?

    Carefully check your voltage- but any multi voltage stabilized power'brick' will do - Wallmart?
    USB in use.- disconnect all other USB devices
    Then go to Control panel/system/hardware/device manager/USB devices- check for yellow warning if all OK simply rollback the drivers.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.

My Digital Camera, EOS 300D, Digital Rebel EOS 5D is not compatible with my new Windows Vista. I can't download my images.

There are two was around this:
1) Get an external USB card reader - I recommend this, because it is faster and does not require any software updating
2) Download the latest EOS Utility from the Canon web site; you also need to download the latest drivers. The cameras you name are supported by Vista, but the original software isn't.

My camera will not transfer pictures to my computer

Please uninstall the previous software and drivers related to your Canon camera FIRST.

Now about try these steps in sequence.

1- Go to this link and down the drivers for you camera.

2- Install the downloaded software. make sure drivers are installed.

3- Connect your camera to your PC, turn the dail to play and turn it on. It will install the drivers. When it is ready, you are able to download copy, Etc.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

problem with USB port or main pcb

I Bought a used Canon EOS Rebel 300D. I did not include a CD for drivers. Where can i find the driver needed to download pics from my camera to my laptop. What cabels are needed and what are the steps...

You don't need the drivers. All you need is a flash card reader that will plug into your laptop's usb port. Much better than plugging your camera in to your computer. They are really inexpensive.
