[Help] Err 70 when transferring files to PC (Brand new Canon 700D)

Hey guys & gals,

I've recently purchased a Canon 700D, and when I try and transfer files from it to the PC, it sometimes comes up with a Err 70 and stops transferring. This seems to happen especially when the files are large.

Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, do you know if there is there any way around/to fix this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

What version of Windows are you using on your PC?

 

For transfering your photos/videos, are you connecting the camera with the supplied USB cable to your computer?  If your computer has multiple USB ports, have you tried different ports?  I would definitely connect the cable to one of the main ports on the computer's body itself (versus plugging it into say a keyboard that happens to have a USB port).

 

Does your PC have an SD card slot?  If so, see if that would allow for transfers without those errors.  Dedicated SD card readers are also fairly inexpensive.  Yet they will also connect via a USB cable to your computer.  So if your USB ports are going bad, a reader wouldn't help.

I have a T7 and, so far, have had no problems downloading photos to a Dell laptop. I used a cord then went to a card reader and discovered a card slot in the laptop. Will be monitoring this for the info and solutions.

Why not simply remove the card from your camera, use a USB (or built-in card reader in the computer) and copy the files that way?  It will be faster, not use your camera battery and far more reliable.
