How could it take so long in one instance and so quick in another then? I don't want to have to give this guy the money back and then lose it because he didn't tell me it came the next day or something.

It's probably gotten lost, damaged or the bugger is a dodgy bastard looking for a refund whilst having received the package.

It's one of the reasons you register it but also one of the reasons that a buyer/receiver should ask for insurance on the package. When you've sent it, you've sent it and that's all that you can do. You can't check if he's received it and the only way to prove to him you've sent it are receipts.

I wouldn't refund him but I'd learn from the experience and take whatever schtick you're about to receive and SEND EXPRESS or REGISTERED in the future.

Now if you don't mind, I'm going to grab another Carlton Daught and watch the rest of Flight of the Concords. ;)

How do you know he doesn't already have the parcel and he is just saying it hasn't come to get the money back? If you are sending something you have sold, send it by courier or registered post so you have a paper trail.

Guess I should have sent it registered... I don't want to refund him and I'm hoping it'll come tomorrow but it was meant to be 2 business days and it's been a full 8 now. You'd think that even if it's not registered, AusPost should be able to find something out? Anyway, something will happen tomorrow.

Nic: This seems like an oldish list, but i cant find the original list if found.

Operating system/software
Compatible operating systems
Windows 98 (including SE) / 2000 / Me / XP
OS 9.0 - 9.2, OS X v10.1 / v10.2

Hmm thats not good, i got v10.5.8.

Didn't you say you got it working on your mac? How did you do it?

DAdeGroot wrote in post #8597660 (external link)
Ok, so you've installed the EOS Utility from the 400D ? Have you updated to the latest version from there ?

Does your firewire port (on the Mac) actually work ? i.e. have you tested it with something else ?

Supposedly, according to the EOS Utility 2.4 manual, you connect the camera via firewire, turn it on, start the EOS Utility, Click Camera Settings/Remote Shooting, then hit the Tool button (bottom right, next to the camera button), change your settings then click X.

Yeah EOS utility is installed and updated.

Firewire port does work, used it with my video camera many a time.

I tried the way you suggested but still nothing, it wont let me click "camera settings/remote shooting"

Because Aust. Post don't deliver - they sub-contract out to a delivery agent, who, more often than not, are slack bastards.

Could be the cable you are using is broken?
Have you tried it on a windows PC or partition if you have bootcamp?

Boucher! Looks good to me! How'd you keep it still? My topic/theme was water so I popped water balloons. Looking back, I should have done something better :p

Edit: For my school assignment, that is.

Used a tripod, inbetween the front two seats with one leg extended into the back seat, didn't move at all, oh and my sister pressed the shutter when I told her, so it wasn't as dangerous as it looks..
