While traveling I connected my camera to a friend's Mac to give them some pictures. Ever since I have not been able to download any of my pictures onto my PC. I've tried reformating the card. I don't know what else to do.
Any help would be great!
Thanks - Hilary

1.Remove the battery, lens and CF card. Allow the camera to sit without power for 20 minutes and then reinsert a fully charged battery.
2.Turn the camera on and push the shutter button as if you were taking a picture.
3. If you don't get the error message reattach the lens and insert the CF card.
4. Check the below canon eos 20d service manual link: http://goo.gl/YtVLQR

Hope it helps, Thanks
CF means that it can't read the compact flash socket on the side. I had a similar problem on one of my bodies. I would try either a different (new or one that hasn't been in the body) with a freshly charged battery. If this doesn't help, you can only send it in for diagnostics and repair
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears.
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!
Prior to models made in 2007 or later, no SLR camera (film or digital) was able to let you compose the picture before shooting it other than through the optical viewfinder. SLRs are different in this respect from compact digital cameras. You will only be able to review your pictures on the LCD after they are taken.
I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too.
