Question about Canon EOS 30D Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Canon 30D My camera sometimes reads "busy" when I am trying to transfer photos from it to my computer. I am not aware of doing anything different when it works and when it reads "busy" and won't transfer anything. I am using the proper cable, trying to follow directions, camera is "on" and cable is properly connected.

This is not a direct solution, but I find that my image transfers are much faster when I pull out the CompactFlash card and put it in a card reader to pull the imagery off.

With respect to the actual problem, try "rebooting" your camera (switch off, then on) and/or reseating the USB connector.

Image transfer


Try restarting your computer or try it on a different computer, "Busy" usually means something is preventing your computer from reading the camera. If that does not help,try calling Radio shack or Staples.

Canon 40D unable to transfer files to my computer


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Kodak M763 how to transfer pictures from computer tp camera?


Use a card reader to copy pictures from the computer.

The camera is designed to capture pictures for ultimate transfer to a computer. It's not really intended to receive pictures from a computer. Thus the camera's data transfer capabilities are designed to go one way. To go the other way you need to use some other device, such as a card reader.

Be aware that if the pictures were taken by a different camera, or have been edited in any way, then the camera may not display the pictures. Opening a picture in a photo editing program and saving it without making any changes counts as editing.

Can photos be transferred FROM a computer or flash drive to the camera?


Yes. There's an "Image/Sound Copy" command in the playback menu.

Be aware that if you've done any editing at all on a computer (opening a picture in a picture editor and then saving it without doing anything counts as editing) then the camera may not display it.

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

Canon 40D upload photos - camera busy -


When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

Busy message keeps flashing...wont upload photos


I posted with the same problem. I was reading the software guide that came with my camera. I ended up going to the menu on the camera and setting the camera's communication. It worked! I can now upload my pictures to my computer again.

Tranferring images


Best thing here is to invest in a usb card reader. I suspect there may be a firmware problem. Check that you are doing right though before you do anything else.
