Hi

I am trying to connect my 1D2 to my XP (SP3) laptop. I have installed EOS Solution Disk v11.00 and then attached the camera by firewire and the laptop makes the "connection" sound. When I try to use EOS Utility a dialogue box comes up saying "Camera is not recognised". I have uninstalled the software and reinstalled it but still no joy.

Any advice where I am going wrong?

Thanks

Did you remember installing the WIA Driver 5.30 for Windows XP? This is necessary and available at http://www.usa.canon.c​om …ark_ii#DriversA​ndSoftware (external link). Filename is 1DMWI530EN.exe and should be quick as only 5 MB.

By the way, communications with the 1D2 is a common issue. Hope you are luckier than many have been.

Is that the disc that came with the camera?

Later versions of Canon's software dropped support for the 1D/1Ds/1D2 and D30/D60/10D cameras.

You SHOULD be able to get a connection using WinXP without a problem, as long as you have the correct software. These cameras aren't officially supported with Vista or Win7, and as a few of the other 1DC users can tell you, they can be a real pain.

If you're connecting tha camera to the computer to download images, save yourself the hassle and get a card reader.
It's much quicker and less likely to have problems.

I am running Vista, When I did the install, all I did was installed the WIA software, connected the camera to the firewire cable and away it went, one point I don`t use this for image transfer, only for changing user ID on the camera and tethered shooting.

Some users have had luck, some have not, regardless of service pack version or if the OS is 32 or 64-bit. Under Vista, even with just the WIA driver, I was never able to make a connection.

Luckily, Lightroom was able to see the camera and connect to it long enough to change the copyright info. Any attempt to do anything else with the camera resulted in the connection dropping and Lightroom hard crashing, but I'd accomplished all I really cared about.
