:cry:Hi All, I have tried to update the firmware on my 400D but when conecting it to the computer it just says camera not recognised, I never got the usb lead with my camera and I was wondering if the lead I am using is not compatible with it, I have seen some for sale like genuine usb lead for £9.99 or a compatible or non Canon for £3 or £4 should I buy genuine Canon usb? any help appreciated..:confused:
Regards, Wayne..

Providing both Canon and the other lead makers follow the USB standard I don't see what difference it should make.

Firmware updates for a XTi are performed using a CompactFlash card, containing the new firmware, (external link) that is inserted in the camera, and not through a cable connection.

"Camera not recognized" errors may be solved by uninstalling and reinstalling the camera's drivers, or finding software conflicts in the computer.

You can transfer the firmware from EOS Utilities to the card, when the card is already in the camera, so it works both ways.

I agree that you must make sure you have the camera drivers installed, or it may not work correctly.

Hi, Thanks for the replys guys, I was trying to install the new firmware via computer and lead may try the other way but not 100% sure of this way. I will delete and reinstall the drivers and try that. Thanks all.
