Having problems with your Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera ?

No longer able to connect 450D to computer

\015 I previously was able to connect my Canon 450D to my Mac via a USB cable. Was fine, but suddenly, it's stopped working. When I plug the camera in, it says busy, but then nothing happens. I have browsed the web, including this site, and have found nothing as of yet that's solved it. I've installed the latest firmware, reinstalled all the software that came with the camera, but still n luck.One other thing, I know someone with a 450D and have tried this camera on the computer, and it works. So it seems like it's a camera issue, I don't know if anything's been changed in the settings somewhere, hopefully someone can help?I'm also not looking to just download the images to a computer, so don't need to have the issue solved by getting a card read. I would like to set the camera up on the computer to enable remote shooting.ThanksNick\015

When you tried the other 450d, did you use your cord or the other person's cord? You could try a camera reset. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.
