    So, a few months ago my Mac stoped recognizing my Canon Digital Rebel XT. I tried playing around with the camera and figuring it out on my own, but I didn't seem to help the problem. So, to save me some frustration I just started using a card reader. Now, my card reader is broken, so I need to figure out what this is about.
    Previously, I didn't install any of the programs that came along with the camera because it automatically sync-ed up to my Iphoto. So, tonight I installed the software that was included, thinking that might be the reason, however, after the installation it's still saying that there is no camera found when the camera is, in fact, hooked up to the computer.


    Does anyone have any tips or ideas into how to fix this problem?


    Thanks!

    Well I can't stand mac's but you might want to uninstall any drivers on your cpu (for your camera) then go to canon's website and download a new driver for your camera. It sounds like you have a corrupted driver file. everyone thinks they are 100% safe with a mac. But they are just as vulnerable as a PC just nobody has ever bothered with them because they only take up less than 10% of the market. But now that Mac's are getting more popular more hackers are directing more viruses toward mac's. best of luck let us know if that worked?:sexywink:

    Yes... this is why you suggested reloading the driver fine.

    The rest is a rant.

    Even so, that equates to about 1% of my post count.

    How about you?

    You might want to try and see if Happy Hours method works if that does not then install the software that came with the camera and see. If that does not work then go to an apple forum because it seams like it's a problem with the computer not the camera.

    Best of luck!

    If you have not, you may want to try plugging the camera into a different USB slot on your mac, or try a different USB cable before you attempt anything further.
