Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Cannot get pictures of my Cannon Rebel XTI camera

\015 I last downloaded pictures from my camera Christmas day. When I plug in the USB cable to the camera and my computer, nothing happens. My computer is not recognizing the camera. I have never had this problem before and have always been able to get them off. I have tried different cables, and have the same problem. Any other device I have plugged into the USB ports, work fine, such as my MP3 player and such. I searched on Cannon's website for drivers, but it said there were no drivers avaliable for the XP systems or even required\015

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!


Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras

I took the CF card out of my Rebel XTi EOS camera to look at the pictures on my computer. When I put the CF card back in the camera I am getting the message "There is a problem with the CF card. Replace the CF card". I put a new CF card in the camera and am getting the same message. What do I do now? Thanks for your assistance.

I have a Digital Rebel 40 D camera less than 1 year old and I removed the memory card and I cannot get it to go back into the slot. The eject button is still depressed after I depressed it to eject the memory card out of it. This is the first time this has happened. I had the original Canon Rebel with over 100,000 pictures taken on it and this never happened. This camera has less than 5,000 shoots and not it is unusable. Any suggestions ? Thank you, Terry


Im no expert, but i would use a flashlight to look inside the memory card holder and see if anythings messed up, and maybe jiggle the eject button a bit, and just maybe the button doesnt come up again until you push in the memory card. give it a litt ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

My cannon rebel will not take picture or go to the menu the only thing it will do is turn on. And when i turn it on a message pops up that says "shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off and on again or re-install the battery." I have tried turning the camera on and off and reinstalling the battery multiple times but nothing works. Do i have to take my camera to a camera shop to get fixed or could i do something at home to fix it??

Missing pictures I recently went on a trip and took some pictures that disappeared from my camera. Later I started getting the message 'Card cannot be read' so I purchased another memory card. I was taking pictures when I get the message 'Card cannot be read'. I turned it off and back on and the missing pictures were there. I then get the message 'Out of memory'. I turn the camera off and back on and the missing pictures are gone again. WHERE ARE THEY???

I have Canon Rebel XTI. When I connected it to a USB port, the AutoPlay in Windows Vista came up and asked what I wanted to do with the pictures. I always selected copy to a specific folder. Now, however, Vista tries to load a the drivers for the Canon and cannot find them. It does not look at the camera as a simple storage device now, but this is what I want. I went through various fixes, including and installing the latest drivers and software, but to no avail. Some sites suggested

My Canon Rebel has stopped importing pix properly, despite being quite new.

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!


Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. ... Digital Cameras

Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

There are (apparently) some strange "pictures" taking up enormous space on my panasonic DMC-FZ20GN. Oddly, they don't appear as images on the camera, but black screens. When I try to delete them, I get the message "some pictures cannot be deleted". I have tried a reset of the camera, but with no success. How can I get rid of them? Peter Townsend. Sydney.


I think you have these locked on your camera. And usually when you see black it is a video.  Check out the info on the file when linked to your mac.  If it,s a video format you might need to view and delete in a video player program. ... Panasonic Digital Cameras
