Hi Folks,

I have a problem that’s probably my error but I can’t solve it. I recently purchased a used 40D and contents but missing the original documentation about the CD’s that came with it.

I could not find the EOS Utility, DPP and Zoom Browser files on any of the discs. So I bought a document package from the site.

Lo and behold I received the same discs I had but this time I got the CD Rom Guide paperwork and disc in a sealed package.

But I can still not find the files on the Products and Solution Disc as the paper work indicates.

Is the Essential Products and Solution Disc the same as the EOS Digital Solution Disc that the guide refers to?

Somewhere I’m missing something. I have gone through the trick stuff trying to download the files from the net but that didn’t go to good either.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Thxs

Mine came with two disks, a white one with the goods your looking for. It is called "Solution Disk". The second disk is black and it is the "Instruction Manual".

Captclick,
I appreciate the reply. Both packages disc I have are red and black. The black being the instructions and the red Essential Products and Solutions seems to be nothing but advertisement.

Captclick,

I did that previously and it seemed like I did not get all of the files. I downloaded DPP and Utility and tried to work by the instruction disc and things just weren't there. That's why I bought the package to get the proper disc. I'm beginning to think maybe some packages actually had improper disc with them.

I'll keep trying I'll find one some day.

I recently bought a 40D and I have the 17.1 solutions disk. I'll burn you a copy if you want. Let me know.

slkfis - Read the article at this link:
http://www.northlight-images.co.uk …stall_canon_sof​tware.html (external link)
The easiest way to aquire DPP is to use the link he gives in Method 3. It is to DPP Vs.1.0 and will therefore install without any previous installation from a disc being required. Once Vs 1.0 is installed you can update it to the current version. The presence of DPP 1.0 in your computer may be enough to allow you to install current versions of ZB and EU also, but I am not sure of that. It is worth a try though, because if it works you won't need the registry hack.
