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?

Re: Canon EOS-300D not seen by computer/not turning on
Heat and batteries - maybe
Try another battery
Remove camera software from computer and put the disk in the box.
Plug camera in switch it on and set it to upload mode
Windows should find it as a new drive or[XP/2000/ME] will put up camera/scanner wizard.

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:
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.
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.

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.
