EOS350D Long Loading Time Via USB

Mon Aug 21, 2006 10:32 pm

Hello,

I hope someone can help me. Whenever I connect the camera to the PC via USB and turn it on, the red CF card light on the cam starts blinking and depending on how many shots I have on the card, it may take several minutes before I can start downloading the photos. I wonder if this is normal? I've been using EOS Utility and Windows picture service for getting the pics.

Thanks!

I'm not familiar with the 350D, but the 300D is glacially slow at downloading shots. I bought a cheapo USB2 card reader and it's much quicker.

That is definitely a fact. I do the same thing, because when connecting the 300D to the computer directly it takes forever. Just buy a Card reader, you can get one for about 5-10 Euros.

Cheers,

Yes going through the USB is really slow. Go direct with a USB 2 card reader. Not sure but maybe your PC sticks them in a buffer somewhere. Not really sure.

Ok ok... dont look any futher... i had the same problem with my 350D and here is the solution:

Power on the camera.

Press MENU

Move right 3 times to the last tab

Go down to Communication

Select "PC CONNECTION" instead of "PRINT/PTP"

Then connect camera to the computer.. it will be as fast as any other camera.
