I am kinda lost on this one so any insight will be appreciated. I bought a new Lenovo Laptop. Great. Installed the EOS Digital disk that came with it. Groovy. I then hook up the camera via USB to the laptop and turn on camera....installing driver....unable to find driver.Crap.

I never had to worry about that in any of my comps, including a Dell laptop. I tried to go to the Canon website but it says they dont have the driver...really? I tried on Google...nothing that I can see that was useful.

I have tried acquiring images using ZB EX but even that says there's no images to acquire...as if the camera is not connected at all.

Only a couple of factors that I can think of.

1. Im running Windows 7 but I have not installled updates to this computer. Partly because my wife is into Couponing and installing might lose ability to print coupons.
2. I cant remember if the 350d came with another disk for drivers other than the one where all the software(ZB ex, DPP, etc) came with.

Kinda lengthy but I'm hoping that someone here, can help me. Thanks in advanced.

Older camera, new Windows 7..........
so maybe that you need to update all your EOS software from the Canon site:

Or..........it might be that you are running Windows 7 64bit and that's incompatible with the 350D drivers. Canon aren't good at supporting 64bit OS's for some reason.

Just buy a card reader - it's the easiest way to downl;oad images anyway.

I figured that. Thanks! Time to browse the "Best card Reader thread"

Neither my 5d or either 1dII will work with a newer Windows 7 machine; so I would expect that an older camera like a 350d would not work either..

You need an older XP machine for these cameras.. If you can find or borrow an older machine, you can update your name/profile and it will stay in the camera.. Then use a card reader for downloads to any computer, you will not be able to use EOS utilities on a windows 7 machine and these older cameras.


.... Got some cameras; got some glass ..... I just need one more of each.....:rolleyes:

I downloaded CS2 to Windows 7 and was able to use the card reader without a problem. Then I could use my 350d. Maybe outner CS will allow this.

There is no problem downloading and viewing and processing images with any 64bit OS and Photoshop (or any other program) once you get the images onto the PC.
The problem is that 64bit Win7 will not recognise the 350D - so you have to use a card reader to download images.
As others have said, if you need to use EOS Utility to change the owners name etc in older cameras then you need to use a 32bit OS - I'm not even sure that Win7 32bit will do.............anyone?
