Having problems with your Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens ?

Camera or software froze up when uploading to computer

\015 I was uploading my pictures using the supplied software. Never had a problem before. It stopped midway. The software became unresponsive. I had to exit it. "BUSY" was blinking in the camera's LCD panel as usual during the upload, but it's still flashing even after I've turned the camera off! I cannot get any button on my camera to do anything whether on or off. My manual does not appear to cover this problem. It does say not to take out the battery or memory card while "BUSY" is flashing, so I don't know what else to do. Is there a safe way to "reset"?\015

Answers :

The warning about taking the memory card out while it says busy is to prevent corrupting the flash card during a write.  Give you were just reading the data, you should be OK, unless it was deleting the files as they were uploaded.  In any case, you will most likely need to remove the battery.  There may also be a small button battery that will need to be removed as well that is used to maintain the time.  I would turn off the camera, remove the memory card, remove the battery, put the battery back in (without memory card).  If you still have the problem try removing the button battery (I am assuming there should be a holder for one somewhere on the camera body).\015\012
