My Camera Is Acting Weird.. Help!

Sat Feb 18, 2006 7:16 am

Hi all,

I have a Canon 300D and I use Zoombrowser EX (came with the camera) to download the photos to my PC. However, since I moved back home from Eindhoven the transfer doesn't work anymore.

I have no clue what going on. I tried all the USB sockets in my computer, I've re-installed Zoombrowse. The camera display seems to be ok aswell, no weird symbols or anything. There is this sort of antenne like symbol on the upper right corner which I haven't noticed before though.

As you can imagine, none of the above helped, otherwise you wouldn't read this  Smile

Can anyone please help me fix my problem or does anyone have an idea what's going on?

Thanks,

Kas

Personally I would HIGHLY reccommend buying a cheap CF card reader - they are only $10 or $15 around here in the US. Slide the CF card into the reader - and it plugs into a USB port. It is infinately faster than the cable supplied with the 300D and ZoomBrowser (I know - I had a 300D).

If you have USB 2.0 - it will be even faster. Then you just create a folder and drop the images into it. Super easy.

As for troubleshooting ZoomBrowser, I don't know what to tell you. Was the camera disconnected when you installed the software?

I probably should've done that already! I'll look around for such a gadget  Smile

Which symbol do you see?


I think you mean either the Beep icon or Drive icon...and if so, they got nothing to do with the transfer issues.

Regarding the transfer issue, you may have to remove the USB driver and reinstall it. That might help ya out. If not, its cheaper to get a Compact Flash reader (make sure its a USB 2.0) as Drew mentioned.

Cheers!!

It's the beep indicator    That thing is solved then as it has nothing to do with the transfer. Great illustration btw!!

Edit: Typo

Well, my 300D broke too a few weeks ago and now I don't have a camera. I'm looking at fixing it as this seems to be hard here on the island. My EOS300D can't even take pictures anymore now  Sad

Hi,
Any idea how many pics you took before get broken?
