  • The camera cannot be connected with a computer (The computer does not recognize the camera)

    • If the camera cannot be connected to a computer, it may be due to the following reasons. Therefore, please check the following items in order to find the cause of the problem.

      1. The camera is not connected properly to the computer with the supplied USB cable

      To connect the camera to a computer, use the supplied USB cable. For details on how to connect the camera to a computer, please refer to How to connect the camera to a computer using a USB cable (EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D).

      2. The camera is not recognized by EOS Utility (You can only click [Monitor Folder] on the main window of EOS Utility)

      If the camera is not recognized by the supplied software, please check whether any of the following cases may be a remedy to the problem.
      • Please check whether the EOS Utility application supplied with your camera, or any other EOS Utility version is installed on your computer. (Version 2.10 or later is supported.) If your version is not supported, please update the application to the latest version by using an updater. You can download the EOS Utility updaters from the Canon Web site.
      • EOS Utility does not operate correctly on a computer if its system requirements are not met. Use EOS Utility on a computer with compatible system requirements. For details on system requirements that are compatible with the application, please refer to the Related information.
      • EOS Utility and the camera may not communicate normally with a cable other than the EOS DIGITAL camera-dedicated Canon interface cable. Connect your camera and computer directly with the interface cable provided with your camera. Do not connect the camera via a hub; doing so may prevent EOS Utility and your camera from communicating normally.
      • If there is insufficient charge left in the camera battery, the camera cannot communicate with EOS Utility. In this case, replace the battery with a charged one, or use an AC adapter kit ACK-E8 (Separately available).Your computer does not supply power to the camera through the interface cable.

      3. CameraWindow is being used

      Your camera does not support CameraWindow. If you are using CameraWindow, please install and use the EOS Utility application supplied with the camera.

      NOTE

      If your computer does not meet the System Requirements for EOS Utility, you can import images using a card slot on the computer or a commercially available card reader. 
      For the procedures for importing images using a card reader or a card slot on a computer, please see the Related Information.

      4. The camera is not recognized by Windows OS

      If the things described in items 1 through 3 above do not apply to your situation, the camera may not have been recognized by your computer's OS. For information on how to work around this, please see the Related Information.

  • If the camera is not detected by Windows Vista

  • If the camera is not detected by Windows 7

  • Using a Card Reader or a Card Slot on a Computer to Download Images

    • If your camera is not compatible with the OS on your computer, you can download photos or movies shot with the camera using a card slot on the computer or a commercially available card reader.


      ATTENTION

      • If you are using an SDHC card or an SDXC card, you may not download images from your computer or card reader due to differences in the file systems. Please confirm that the SDHC or SDXC card is compatible with your computer or card reader beforehand by checking the Web pages of the card manufacturers.
      • Depending on your computer, software, or OS, you may not be able to play back the imported movies or RAW images. For details on image compatibility, please see the software instruction manual that is included on the CD-ROM bundled with your camera.


      NOTE

      Windows 7 is used as an example, but the procedures are mostly the same if you use Windows Vista, Windows XP, or Mac OS X.

      To download images, follow the instructions below.

      1. Insert the memory card into the card slot on your computer or commercially available card reader. When using a card reader, make sure to connect the computer to the card reader before inserting the card into the reader.

      2. The memory card data is loaded to the computer.

      • After the following window appears, select [Open folder to view files].
      • If the window does not appear, select [Computer](Windows Vista: [Computer]; Windows XP: [My Computer]), [EOS_DIGITAL] from the [Start] menu.


      3. Images shot with the camera are saved in the memory card's [DCIM] folder with the following folder structure and file names.


      NOTE

      • The "xxx" in the folder names represents a number between 100 and 999.
      • For the 1D series cameras, the folder structure is the same for CF cards and SD cards.
      • When you perform DPOF settings on the camera, a [MISC] folder is created. The files that manage the DPOF settings are saved in the [MISC] folder.
      • A thumbnail file is a file saved with the same file name as the movie and includes shooting information. When you play a movie with the camera, both the movie file and the thumbnail file are required.
      • When Adobe RGB is specified, the file names of images shot with your camera have an underscore "_" as the first character.

      4. Copy images in the folder to the computer. (As an example, the following screenshot shows that the DCIM folder is moved to the desktop of the computer by dragging.)

      5. After the folder is copied, open the copied folder to check the images inside.
