Something really strange (I think) is happening..I connected my 5Dc to my windows 7 computer for the first time today and never even considered that the communication was set to Print/PTP, well as soon as I plugged it in the computer found a driver, recognized it as a 5D, and allowed me to do whatever I wanted, download images, select functions in EOS utilty, etc. However, when I clicked the "Camera Settings/Remote Shooting" button in EOS utilty it told me I had to have communication set to "PC Connect" so I set it, then reconnected, and my computer can't find a driver for the camera now. It still works fine with print/PTP set.

I did some research when I got my 5D and tried to get it to work with win 7 64bit. Apparently it's not possible to get remote shooting with the 5D and a newer OS. You need win XP to get the pc connect feature to work. AFAIK the only way to transfer images is through print/ptp. Personally I just use my 500D for webcam/live view stuff and just use a card reader for CF cards.

Remote shooting is pretty useless on the 5d anyways. Without live view you can't get a "viewfinder" image on your computer screen so you still have to view your composition through the viewfinder on the camera. So as long as you're there looking through the viewfinder you might as well just run the camera from there.

I would suggest you find someone with win XP and install eos utility on their machine. I had an old laptop myself with XP so I managed to change the name :) Good luck!
