Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon Rebel XT and it won't download onto my computer, which I've been doing for the past 2 years. Error message says, "camera not detected". Can't figure out what changed on the camera or computer in the past week that would explain this problem.


Answers :

HI! DID YOUR CANON REBEL COME WITH ANY SOFTWARE? AND, WHAT OS ARE YOU USING? AND WHAT PHOTO PROGRAM ARE YOU USING?
\015\012I KNOW WITH WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY, HITTING FILE>IMPORT FROM CAMERA OR FILE THE PROGRAM WILL AUTOMATICALLY TRY TO FIND YOUR CAMERA. ARE YOU SURE THAT THE CABLE YOU ARE USING IS WORKING? IT MIGHT HAVE QUIT IF IT HAD HEAVY USE. TRY A DIFFERENT CABLE IF POSSIBLE. IF YOUR CANON CAME WITH SOFTWARE, I WOULD TRY A RE-INSTALL OR REPAIR OF ANY PROGRAM IT HAD. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED TO EITHER THE PROGRAM FROM THE CANON OR THE PHOTO PROGRAM YOU ARE USING. TRY TO UPDATE THE PHOTO PROGRAM IF THERE IS A NEWER VERSION. THIS MIGHT ALSO HELP SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. OK? IF NOT, JUST REPLY WITH THE TOP QUESTIONS AND WE'LL SEE WHAT WE CAN COME UP WITH.

Does Canon have a problem with their software? When I try to download photos the camera is recognized by the software but then the window does not provide software available to download, even though I have downloaded tons of photos prior to this problem.
