I have a Rebel xti and upgraded to Windows 7 and now my photos won't upload to the computer. I tried to find the suggestion given;
"try switching your camera communication mode from "normal" to "PTP" under the second tools menu. A card reader though will save you a LOT of time downloading pictures as the original rebel is only usb 1.1"
Where is this selection on my camera? I looked in the menu and went all through it don't see any such option.
Yes I looked at a few card readers in the meantime but have no idea what their function is or how to install it. I guess I will learn!
With most card readers you simply plug it into a USB port and after it is recognized you put the CF card from the camera into the appropriate card slot and it should give you a popup on the screen. It will treat the CF card as another drive and you can copy and paste your pictures from it.
Did you see the links in a post above to possible places to purchase a card reader? A card reader may be your best choice. You can check the Canon site, if you haven't already, to see about updated software for the camera.
