I'm experiencingdifficulty in transferring photos to my pc from my recently purchased Canon XSI, ie: Windows does not recognize the USB cord from my camera to a port in my pc. My solution disk, ver 18.1 is damaged, I thought that I may have not fully downloaded the disc, and my local camera shop indicated that I may be able to download the disk from a Canon Website. That being the case, your assistance is requested, please. Some suggestion, too, that my pc may be the culprit. Thanks, Ron Russell

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob
