Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

My xsi tells me on the computor that there is no device connected

\015 I never had this problem before and the camera is turned on. My cord is o.k. What could be the problem. Camera has never been dropped and its 6 months old\015

Answers :

The camera just started having this problem out of the blue? Nothing changed. First I would try doing a system restore on your computer to a day before this started happening.

Click Start>Settings>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>System Restore.

IF that doesn't work then you can try downloading new firmware for the camera at the following website

Let me know how this works out for you, if it doesn't work, please don't rate my solution as I can't help you once it is rated and we can look further into this

Can't dowload Help! I purchased a C2000Z one week ago. I loaded the Camedia 4.1 and the Adobe CD's onto my Pentium II computer. An icon for My Digital Camera comes up in the My Computer Window, but there is no selection for an OLY 2000 - the only Olympi choices were the 200 and 300. The computer tells me I have no connection, on either of my two serial ports at any speed (changed in the Camedia software and in Device Manager. Is the port or the cable defective, or have I goofed up in the loading


I would be concerned. First, the C2000Z is a very precision device. It came with a 41mm lens cap. If the extended lens bothers you, get the CLA-1 adapter, and cap it with a 43mm lens cap. I personally would not buy a demo digital camera. It goes thru ... Olympus Camedia C-2000 Zoom Digital Camera
