EOS400D Utility Error

I used the app. CD (Utility, ZoomBrowser and Dig. Ph.Pro) succusfully on Windows XP, no problem downloading. Utility opened as a black window, giving download choices. I've just installed on a new pc, running Vista, and all works except Utility. Plugging the camera in brings an AutoPlay window... when I choose "Download using Canon Utility" it gives me a "Camera not recognized" message. It does seem to work if I choose the "Download using Windows".... but that is not how its suppose to go... am I wrong? Any help will be great! Thanks.

I too had the "Camera Not Recognized" problem, until I finally figured out what was causing it.

Yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled the software. I downloaded the most up to date EOS Utility. Blah-blah.

All to no avail.

Then, it struck me.

I have a PC motherboard with several USB ports: 4 on the rear panel and a 2 on the motherboard connected to the front panel of the PC. A couple of years ago, I blew a motherboard by connecting to one of these ports.

I had a 7-port USB hub for all my stuff (printer, cell phone, GPS, label printer, weather station, 2 monitors with built-in hubs) so I began plugging my camera into one of the USB ports on the monitor, meaning camera to hub to hub to PC to avoid the possibility of zapping the motherboard again somehow.

Today I realized that's about when the "Camera Not Recognized" problem started so I plugged the camera directly into the PC and the EOS Utility worked fine.

To make a long story short, try plugging the camera directly into the PC without any intervening hubs.

Good luck.

What you need to do is to go and download the latest driver updates from the Canon Website. I had exactly the same problem, and I now downloaded the latest updates for the Utility, and its working 100%.

Hi
check on the canon website for updated software to install the utility

often new versions are released and are freely available to download off their site
look for your camera model and check the links to download

some new cameras sold today still dont have the applications shipped with the unit
the website is the best place for the latest versions

otherwise use a third party application to transfer the images
picasa by google does a good job too

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file."

Motorola i855 authentication error on java apps

Hello, first you need a usb cable. You have to go to motorola.com/iden and download the apps for i855. On the motorola site, download the usb software for your operating system. If you have windows vista as I have, you have to right clilck on the download apps utility and check to use windows xp service pack 2. Thats all I did and it worked. Then go in apps on the phone and download it and go to the factory presets and download. When you download the apps, you will have two in your folder. After you finish, delete the one thats not being used as its using up memory. Pebbles

Canon zoombrowser Ex downloading problem

Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel.
Do a "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.
That should fix it, good as new.
If that is not a possible option, try uninstalling. (if there is no "Change" and 'repair program') then Run the normal uninstall program.
