Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

I get a busy signal when trying to transfer pictures to my computer


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Your camera is not numbering the pics consecutively. It is duplicating the numbers and your computer thinks the pics are already there. You are going to have to figure out the duplicates and download them to a separate folder and then rename them. ... Kodak EasyShare C913 Digital Camera

Problem downloading I've had my camera for about a year now and have been able to download pictures from my camera to my computer without any trouble.

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!


First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

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.
