The easiest way is to use a CF card reader and not connect the camera to the PC at all. Assuming you have a USB (or firewire) port, you can copy the files directly from the CF card to the PC. It's a lot faster than doing it through the camera. If you did a little survey, you'd find the vast majority of people upload their photos in this way and don't bother connecting the camera to the computer.
My name is Denise, & I am new to this site. I have a Canon Rebel DS6041& have my own pet photography business. I have never had a problem uploading my pictures directly from the CF card to my PC, until the other night.
It's like my PC has stopped recognizing the CF card. It will recognize & upload through Adobe, my pictures from my small digital camera, just not the Canon. I bought a brand new CF card & tried that with no luck. I can see the images on my camera, they just wont load onto my PC. I have updated Windows & my computer, I tried using the USB cable that goes with the camera, but when I slide it into the USB slot, it takes me through a wizard that starts searching for a Canon software on my PC which I do not have. I always use Adobe.
After the wizard finishes, it tells me it cannot complete the installation because it cannot locate the Canon software on my PC. I don't know what else to do , other than take the CF card to a print shop & have the images put on a disc, to bring home & load on my PC to edit. I am in a bind & would appreciate any help I can get. I don't know what else to do. I am fairly computer literate, but no genius. Any ideas? HELP!
