Windows 7: Unable to install Canon Rebel XT Camera

Unable to install Canon Rebel XT Camera

Hi folks,

Both the Windows Compatibility and Canon Compatibility sites state the Rebel XT is compatible with Windows 7. That is, no drivers need be downloaded.

The EOS utility which is used to establish communications between the Rebel XT and Windows 7 is only good for Vista and previous Windows operating systems (I tried it anyway with no luck, then removed it and conducted a shutdown - not a restart - to remove any traces).

When I plug the camera into the USB port the following appears: "Device detected, installing drivers" followed by "Device drivers not sucessfully installed". The Windows 7 troubleshooting utility comes up with "No drivers found".

On the other hand, my Canon Powershot SD950 IS was simply plug and play like the Rebel XT is supposed to be.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Gary

Thanks to help from a guru friend the following worked.

Go into the menu of the Canon Rebel XT and select: Menu4/communication/

In this directory select "Print/PTP" instead of "PC Connection".

Windows 7 and Canon Digital Rebel XT camera
In XP, as soon as I connected the camera via USB, the pictures would download automatically to Canon's software "ZoomBrowser." In Windows 7 it just does not work anymore. I've updated the software from Canon's site, and there are no drivers available for the camera. The camera is detected in my...
