Hiya! recently I've attempted to connect my Rebel T6 camera to my computer using the Mini USB to USB cord. Unfortunately, my computer didn't recognize my camera, even after installing new firmware for the camera, installing updated versions of EOS Cam utility, and all of the drivers etc.
Still, my T6 camera doesn't connect, even after checking the batter charge, making sure I'm in movie mode, and making sure I turn the camera on, before plugging the usb cord to the back of my computer's motherboard.
I've made sure my camera was compatible with the EOS Utility, it on the forums, my camera was listed as a compatible camera.
If you wish to connect your camera to a computer, Canon are extremely specific about what cable spec to use. I have seen similar issues to yours, where people have tried different cables without success, and essentially you need to use exactly that cable type:
You can find the cable spec for your camera at this link: HERE
The cable listed on the site I gave you the link to shows:
|EOS 1300D/Rebel T6||IFC-400PCU||USB 2.0 Type A to Mini USB Type B cable|
Which is what you say your camera has the USB Type A goes to the computer, the Mini USB type B goes to your camera. There are lots of similar USB cables out there, but you need specifically this type by name: IFC-400PCU
When you say 'IFC-400PCU variant', was the cable specifically identified as that in the packaging or purchasing docs? Even if it looks that that, it may not have the exact wiring configuration required to make this work.
Is your desire to connect to your computer for streaming purposes or to download files?
