Re: EOS Utility issue - Live view freeze

Does the error still occur if you use a card reader instead of a direct transfer from the camera? If not, that suggests that the problem isn't the computer running out of virtual memory or something similar. It also gives you a workaround while you track down the problem.

 

I wonder if the problem itself has something to do with the uplink speed - in effect, the image files not being able to get out of the way in time if you're trying to keep shooting. Are you doing the upload via USB or WiFi?

Re: EOS Utility issue - Live view freeze

I'm trying to transfer the images from camera to computer using canon utility with USB cable


So I was playing all day and this what I found

 

Decide to check how it will work on my old laptop and it works perfectly USB 2.0 and WiFi
Then back to computer USB 3.0 and WiFi  not work freezes all the time


Then I change to USB 2.0 and it works  perfectly

 

First, I disable AI-charger for USB 3.0 then USB 3 boost NO effect back to the previous setting
I update all drivers for motherboard and USB 3.0 and still USB and WiFi  not work

 

Remote Shooter from PC, file save on hard drive will freeze after few pictures in USB 3.0 and WiFi,

the fastest you click the faster the program freeze


Connect to USB 2.0 works perfectly I can click as fast I can and it will not freeze.

 

Remote Shooter WiFi connection with iPhone works perfectly I can click as fast I can and it will no freeze

Re: EOS Utility issue - Live view freeze

I'm confused I was thinking that the computer program is freezing but it actually looks like that it is the camera freezing every time. I have to turn it Off and On when this happens to make the camera work again

OK, here's the deal. Even some of the high-end cameras can't use EOSU 3. (I don't recall whether the 7D is one of them; I have a couple of 7D's but I don't use them unless I'm doing a 2-camera event. But it's quite possible.) But you don't actually have to worry about that if you do the installation correctly. When you do a full installation of EOSU 3, the installer installs EOSU 2 as well. Then when you call EOSU 3, you enter a control module that looks at your camera and decides whether EOSU 2 or EOSU 3 is appropriate and calls the correct version seamlessly. So what I'd suggest is that you uninstall EOSU completely and then do a complete installation of EOSU 3. That's what I did, and it works perfectly with all my cameras under Windows 10 Pro.

Re: EOS Utility issue - Live view freeze

Try everything EOSU3  Ver 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 remove EOSU2 still not work.

Then I found something else; the pictures will not copy from camera to hard drive in windows explorer when connected to USB 3.0 port It will freeze the same way after few picture transfer.
USB 2.0 no problem
This is very strange I don't recall any problem with USB 3.0 on my computer with any device I connected before.
I will buy tomorrow PCI-e card with USB 3.0 or 3.1 and tested this again

Re: EOS Utility issue - Live view freeze

Yeah, looking back at your previous post, it does seem that either your USB 3 cable or the camera's USB 3 port could be the culprit.

Problem solved
Purchase $25 Pandex PCI-E Controller Card (USB3.1 External Type A+C, with Internal USB3.0 header connector ) which was nice to connect USB cable from the front of the case.

USB 3.0 works great images are flying to my Hard drive no freezing connects instantly.
Also, test my WiFi and it freezes once at the first time, but the same time there was an update for my Asus RT-AC66U Router so did the update and now it transfers images with no problem.
I will do the test tomorrow with the remote shooter and USB3.1 connection.
