This might seem a really daft question, but I bought this camera (Canon EOS 350) this weekend and I am just sat here pulling my hair out how to download more than one photo at a time to my pc.

I have installed all the software that comes with it and it all seems just allow me to only download one image, and I just cant believe that there is noway I cant do them all at once.

Please please can someone help me cos I am sure I must just be missing the obvious here.

Not sure if this answers your question, but the easiest way to move pictures from your camera to your PC is with a card reader. In my case, I use a laptop. The CF card from the camera fits into a thing that goes in the card slot of my laptop. You can also get a card reader that plugs into the USB port.

The computer reads the CF card just like another drive. No software is needed. Then I select all the photos and move them to whatever directory I want on my PC. It is quick and easy.

thanks for replying :}

if you dont have a card reader though .. what software would you use. I have a ph photosmart printer that allows to read from my card reader but from past experience only allows so many photo's at a time. I dont have any slots on my pc to allow me to do a direct read from a card, which is why I need some software advice.

I use the CF card reader method these days, but I am fairly sure that Canon software that came with the camera has the ability to auto download all the images from the camera. It used to when my D60 was my primary camera.

I think it was remote capture or zoom browser, one of those two would download all the pictures from the camera when it connected up.

Like Longwatcher, I now use a card reader. I just find it easier and I don't need to leave the camera on (and drain the camera batteries) while the pics are downloading. And card readers are fairly cheap these days.

Having said that, before the card reader, I used ZoomBrowser EX which would download all of the files at one time. What software did you get with the camera and what software are you currently trying to use?

Zoombrowser Ex

but when I try and click the acquire images etc it just wont let me. It just closes up and does nothing. Although I click on the other buttons and they work.

I am positive this is "user error" but this user just cant work out what the heck she is doing :}

Your camera should have come with 3 CDs in the box. The one labeled Canon EOS Digital Solutions, is th eone you want to load into your computer. Then hook up the camera.

That program moves all your photos over without the card reader. The first box to check is Starts to Download Images. That one will move all the photos.

great that the software now works for you,

BTW the link for the card looks identical to the card reader I use as well. very fast, although it occasionally hiccups on Lexar cards (Go figure it being a Sandisk reader). No data lost, I just have to unplug and plug back in for the card reader to read correctly. Very fast at least mine is.

I am curious ..

After I have solved the problem my photo's now download great (& Fast) with the software I got with my camera .. so what would be the advantage of getting a card reader instead ?

you do not have to leave your camera turned on, it allows faster read and write speeds, it means you can fill up more than one card and dump them all to your computer...

And BTW, I find a program called "Picasa" is great. It allows you to copy your photos across, puts them in the right place and supports all normal formats (including RAW)

and its free!

For me, the card reader is very convenient. There are no cables to fiddle with. I just insert the CF card into the holder and then insert into the card slot in my laptop. It is so simple. As others have said, you also do not drain the camera batteries.

The card reader I use was only $9.95 at Adorama, so it won't break the bank.
