Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

Camera not recognized by PC

\015 I just bought a Rebel XTI and have installed the software, rebooted, and read the manual, but every time I try to transfer prints to my PC I get the message "camera not recognized". The manual says to set it to "communication" prior to transfering pictures, but my camera does not have a communication option.I have tried going to transfer order and still nothing. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Hi
Your best bet would be to go out and buy a card reader. This solves your problem and save you in other ways. First of all the whole downloading process is a lot quicker. Second your save wear and tear on your battery. Three no need to plug in the power cord if you don't want to run on battery power. lowers the risk of damage to your camera and possible accidents by the cable getting pulled and taking your camera with it.

Card reader are really cheap.
