Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

marcosf,

 

There is a newer version of EOS Utility than version 2.12.3.1.  Version 2.13.0 can be downloaded from the Canon USA website below:

 

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_5d_mark_iii#DriversAndSoftwa...

 

Please try downloading and installing the update to this newer version and see if that does not resolve the issue.

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

Hi Mike,

 

thanks for the response. Unfortunately this also did not work. I downloaded the linked EOS utility 2.13.0(2.13.0.0) and ran the importer. I even rebooted my mac to make sure that only the smallest amount of programs/services were running and closed as much as possible. It started off well, the tool was able to download around 87 of my 175 RAW images, but then it got stuck again. I restarted the tool, but this time it stopped already at picture one(see attached screenshots). The first screenshot is from the frozen upload-menu. The 2nd pops up after about 3mins telling me there was some communication error.

This is accompanied by some interesting console log-messages:

4/23/13 9:51:12.000 PM kernel: USBF: 319.351 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff8012154000]::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0xfa, timing out! (Addr: 6, EP: 2)

I even installed the Adobe Lightroom 5 beta version, just to check how it performs and it broke with the same error code, followed by some custom Lightroom errors:

4/23/13 9:57:11.000 PM kernel: USBF: 678.523 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff8012169000]::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0xfd, timing out! (Addr: 4, EP: 2)

Waiting for more instructions...

Marco

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

Hi Mike,

 

also, I already opened a "Support by Email" ticket this past sunday, but haven't heard back from anybody... What would be best to procede here? I also have been in contact with Apple(in reference to Aperture) at some point, but after writing me that an engineer will write back to me(this was 3 weeks ago) I have not heard anything.

 

Best,

Marco

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

Normally this kind of error suggests there is something wrong with the USB connection. One it could be the 5D or it could be the cable or it could be the computer or whatever else you connect in between like a USB hub.

You probably have done everything but you didn't indicate so I must guess and the obvious steps to take would be to get rid of any USB hub. Some hub simply does not have enough power to keep working properly when something like a camera would be drawing current from the USB port. Then if the connection is direct, I would change USB port. Then I would change the USB cable. Then I would get a $10 card reader and skip connecting the camera completely. Unless you tether the camera, why bother connecting it each time you download pictures...what a pain would that be...You may find out that it does it with the card reader also and then you'd know it's not the camera...if it's the camera you might want to return it or send in for repair before the warranty runs out.

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

Hi diverhank,

 

thanks for the response.

 

1. There are no hub's. I connected the 5D directly to my MacBook Pro's usb-port's(checked both).

2. I can use the same flash-card with the same USB-cable with my Canon 50D and download the RAW pictures I shot with the 5D mark 3.

3. I can flawlessly download all pictures on a windows 7 PC with the eos utility and the same cable.

 

My guess: someone messed up the driver-code, but it's not clear whether it was apple or canon. Currently more fingers seem to point to canon.

 

Best,

Marco

The camera isn't shutting off by any chance while it is d/l is it?

And you are using the USB cable that came with the camera?

I still think it is a USB problem.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

Marco, I agree with your guess...interestingly I haven't heard of your problem on other forums...I guess most people use card readers and don't bother with connecting the camera...Sorry could not be of any help...I can appreciate your trouble though. I'd be irate at this point Smiley Happy.

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

today I was out taking pictures again and tried to download them - this time successfully. 2 Days ago the canon email support told me to turn "Auto power off" to "disable". This has most likely fixed my issue(most likely, since I already once was able to download 87 of 175, and today I had exactly 75 pictures total). But I am very confident that this was it.

 

A word with you canon developer(s)... please fix this - I have the "Auto power off"-feature set to 1min on my Canon 50D and I never had any lost connection - EVER - since it will ignore the option when it is connected via USB. I would love to use the same setting on my brand new 5D Mark 3. But this just on the side, from one software developer to another.

 

Regards,

Marco

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

I tried auto power off disable - that did not work either. I had contacted Canon support and tried the things they recommended and was not successful. so they recommended replacing the camera since I just bought it. I got it replaced and the new one also has the same problem. I dont know whats going on. My laptop worked fine with the 5d MIII I got from CPS. But the two new ones I got are not working. Its working just fine on a windows laptop. I am getting the same issue which marcosf was getting.

I have the OSx Mountain Lion all updated. I have the latest EOS utility (updated last week) and the camera firmware is uptodate.

I am a little reluctant to use a card reader as I have to often take the card in and out and am afraid that it will spoil my camera (my first P&S had that fate.. so I am afraid)

Re: 5d Mark III not downloading RAW

 If it is a Mac and you have Lion, there are know issues with it, and at least with LR and PS CS6.

Probably more software.

I repeat again!!!!!!!

The 5D is one of the cameras that Mac Lion does NOT support. Swapping out the camera is not going to help.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.
