Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera

Canon EOS 20D wont connect to PC

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

    I have a built in card reader on my computer and didn't know it! Plugged the card in and it worked great. Thanks!

First of all, I think you'll get better results by using a Card Reader. It's faster and you're not so dependent on the camera and computer being in some sort of "sync"

They are soo cheap now and more dependable. Computers aren't so fussy about different card readers being plugged into them.

I think you're problem might be solved by re-installing your Canon software and then following the instructions about interfacing the camera w/computer.......I'd still go for the reader.

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:

Canon eos 20d giving false error message


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

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
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!

EOs 20D digital camera


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.

Canon 20D Camera & Vista


it's probably the Canon EOS 20D
go to http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010131.asp and select windows vista

it's only available for windows vista 32 bit, so it probably doesn't work if you have the 64 bit version

Connection Problem


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. Good luck!
