    I can't seem to download this disk onto my computer. The disk does not mention any system requirements, but I pretty much have a brand new computer (reformatted) that I am planning to only use for photos.

    Its driving me nuts!

    You mean installing from the disk? any modern PC should work just fine. Have you gone to Canon's website and try to download it from there and install it?

    ^^^its not available on canon's website. I have no idea why it doesn't work. When I put in my bro in laws disk he got with his XSi (mine is a T1i) it works. His disk is ver. 28 and mine is 20.1 (more updated).

    I have the T1i also. Everything that's included on the solution disk in available on that site (the link I provided). Now that I know you have the T1i, here is the direct link to the download section. Canon EOS Digital Rebel T1i

    Under Driver/software section, select your OS from the drop down box. Then start downloading. Each item you download you will have to go back and re-select your OS. If you want what's on the disk then get the EOS Utility, Picture Style Editor, Original Data Security Tools (if on Windows), Canon RAW Codec, Digital Photo Professional, and ZoomBrowser EX. And of course the PDF manual if wanted/needed.

    is there a program that you might think my comp is missing that will stop me from installing it?

    keep in mind that I recently reformatted and am running XP and no other programs.

    Yea only a couple are updates, but even the updates might work. When you try to install the update before you have anything installed on your computer, it will ask you to insert your disk to verify it. I would definitely give it a shot.

    There shouldn't be any program missing if you just recently reinstalled XP. did you go through all your XP updates. (the most daunting part about reinstalling)

    I think I know whats wrong. After 45 mins of downloading, RAW codec says that it can not install b/c I need XP SP2? I don't know what I have but I think its XP Professional. This can probably be the problem?

    You need to go to Windows Update on your computer and let it update. If you're at SP1 (Service Pack 1), you have a LOT to get updated. Set it to automatic when it asks you and you will update to SP3.

    Yep, I kind of figured you'd need the updates after you reminded me about your reinstalling XP. It should keep your computer busy for a spell.

    ^^^thanks. Thats what I'm doing now. But I don't know why the manual doesn't show what the requirements are. I spent a good 3-4 hours trying to figure it out.

    Consider this as a piece of luck... having an PC that's not updated is like leaving your car running with the door open in NY city. There's literally hundreds of security updates you'll be receiving from Microsoft.
