Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

Connected camera to computer before installing software

\015 I made the mistake of connecting my new Canon digital Rebel XSi to my computer BEFORE installing the software. I just now read in the instructions that doing this will cause the software to not be installed correctly. What do I do now?\015

Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
