Hi everyone,

Simple question (I think).... Can I get the EOS utility to read my card reader by default? Right now the Adobe downloader is doing this task and I'd like to change it....
Thanks!

Yes, but you would have to edit your Autoplay Event Handlers. Are you comfortable editing your Windows Registry?

That sounds way too confusing for this task....Why the registry?

Because that's where the Autoplay Event Handlers are stored.
The easy way would be to put a card in your reader and see if an Autoplay dialog box pops up asking you which application you want to use to transfer your photos. If it does you can specific EOS Utility from that dialog box but often times the option is chosen not to show the dialog box so it defaults to a particular application. When that happens to only way to change it is in the Registry itself.

Don't download with the EOS Utility. It sets the date created and modified to the current system time they're being downloaded, problematic if you're sorting in windows.

I never knew that (not that it really affects me). Thanks for that tidbit.

To the OP - try this. With the camera connected to the PC and turned on, open up My Computer. You should (hopefully) see the camera. Right click on it, select properties from the drop down menu. One of the tab should be called 'autoplay' from memory. You should (hopefully) be able to set the options from there.

The OP asked about using EOS Utility with a card reader.

OP - I don't think it can be done. If you open EOS Utility without the camera-pc usb connection the downloading function is disabled.
However, Canon has another utility called the Zoombrowser EX Memory Card Utility which downloads just like EOS Utility. Although it is a standalone you can only get it bundled with Zoombrowser. To obtain it download and install Zoombrowser EX 6.0 and then uninstall everything but the Memory Card Utility. It can be easily set to Auto-Play when a card with images is inserted into the reader. Kind of stupid of Canon not to make it available separately.

edit - I just thought that it may be possible to do a custom installation, selecting only the utility.

Ah my bad. I didn't notice that. Why on Earth would you want to do that, EOS Utility is *designed* to communicate with a camera. That's it.

OP - try downloader pro.
