Connecting my Rebel to my Laptop

\015 I already posted this, but now I cannot find it anywhere.\015\012\015\012I need to know how to connect my EOS-300D so I can download RAW images directly to my Laptop with Vista Home Premium.\015\012\015\012I have the cable to connect my Rebel, but I cannot seem to find the drivers that allow me to update the Firmware on my Rebel from my Laptop.\015\012\015\012Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?\015

Answers :

I would highly recommend you to use a fast USB 2.0 compliant Compact Flash card reader to copy photos from your CF card to your PC. This is much faster than trying to copy the files from the camera, as your camera is USB 1.1 compliant (ie. very very slow).

However, if you wish to use your camera to copy files with Windows Vista, you must switch your 300D to operate in PTP (picture transfer protocol) mode instead of Normal one. (in the camera's screen, go to the last tab, and change the option: Communication from Normal to PTP). I am not sure though that the PTP mode will allow you to copy RAW images. You have to check it.

As for the RAW images, I suggest you download and install the Canon RAW codec from:

http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0026049.asp

This codec will allow you to open CRW files directly from the Windows Photo Gallery application. Perhaps if you install this codec first and then try to connect your camera in PTP mode with your PC, to succeed in what you want. Still though, I recommend you to buy a cheap USB 2.0 CF card reader, it will save you hundreds of hours of Camera to PC download time.

Hope this helps.
