I cannot get my new Computer with Windows8.1 to recognize myCanon Rebel XTi EOS 400 D camera

I noted in a previous post that someone ,I believe from Canon , suggested to go to the menu on camera then to wrench, hammer, 2 setting and make certain changes there that should work to correct problem. My camera does not have the same settings they listed under the wrench, hammer, 2 so i could not try that. I have downloaded the latest software from Canon. Do I need to give up and buy a compact flash reader or is there a fix? It used to be so easy when I had Windows XP. Thanks for any help.

They probably told you to change the communication to PTP.  But the Rebel XTi, the PTP protocol is now the same for both modes, making it unnecessary to switch. The menu therefore no longer has the Communication setting. 

 

Get a card reader instead.

We still have a couple of XTi's kicking around at home, and I have Windows 8 and 8.1 laptops that are absolutely up-to-date. I'll try to find time to run a couple of tests over the weekend.

Bob from Boston,

I had five (5) XTi's.  I used thme but not too often as they were the loaners for the 2nd shooters.  They have all been given away, now.  A couple went to the grandkids that I imagine still have them?

I think I was on the 1D Mk II, or the Mk IIn, when they came out and I remember thinking it has more MP (10 I think?) than my 1 series did.
