Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
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.

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%.

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
