Had a major hard drive failure on my imac last month, now it's up and running like a new mac. (Snow Leopard) I found a very old EOS software disc, Ver. 9.1. Loaded it, went to Canons website, downloaded the latest version of DPP.
I cannot get the window to open that asks me to select or down load all (Utilities?) when the camera is first connected. Only way to get photos is off iPhoto. It will download, but does not install photos in DPP. I have to create a file individually for my dates, transfer each over one at a time.
A.) What am I doing wrong?
B.) Search here tells me Canon no longer supports the 5D in it's DPP software. Am I screwed?
C.) I just tried my first RAW to Jpg and it converted ALL the photos in that file to jpg. Again, what am I doing wrong?
I really miss my old DPP that automatically set up files by the dates of my photos. Anyway to get this function back?
This hobby is getting more frustrating than it is worth. Either Canon will have to come around, or just keep watching the classifieds. Life's too short to fight with ever changing software and lack of support from manufacturers.
