Changing Camera Owner Name In EOS 5D

I need to change the owner name in my faithful EOS 5D.  As I understand it, this can only be done with the Canon EOS Utility.  (Changing the camera owner name allows me to add the author name, also, in the event an image is processed without adding all of the valuable metadata.)

 

I'm currently using EOS Utility version 2.13.10.  I CAN see my EOS 5D MKII camera with no problem, and I can edit the camera owner information.

 

Unfortunately, I can't see my 5D in the EOS Utility.  I'm using a Mac Book Pro, running OS 10.6.8.

 

I can, however, shoot tethered in Capture One, but not Adobe Lightroom. We're all aware of the many combinations of cameras and software applications and their compatibilities - I've been chasing this for years. 

So...does EOS Utility version 2.13.10 NOT work with a Canon EOS 5D? Do I have to revert to an earlier version to make this work?

 

Thank you.

Well...that explains that.

 

Maybe I can still use an earlier version of EOS Utility with a 5D....?

 

Thank you.

The latest version of Canon Utility that supported the 5D is only compatible with OS X. But you can try.

You must have the WIA Driver installed for the 5D camera itself, otherwise most of the settings in the EOS Utility will be greyed out. Your computer will not recognize your camera in PC Connect mode without the WIA Driver. I used EOS Utility 2.4 for the Canon 5D.
