Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions
Wireless Features
Non-EOS Cameras: Importing Images with CameraWindow
EOS Cameras Only: Importing Images with EOS Utility
Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions
• When connecting the camera/camcorder to a computer via an interface cable, connect the
interface cable directly to the USB port. Connection via a USB hub may prevent correct operation.
• Using other USB devices (except USB mouse devices or keyboards) when the camera/camcorder is connected may prevent correct operation. In this case, disconnect the other devices
from the computer and reconnect the camera/camcorder.
• Do not connect multiple cameras or camcorders to a single computer. This may prevent correct camera/camcorder operation.
• Do not allow the computer to enter sleep (or standby) mode while a camera/camcorder is connected via an interface cable. If this does happen, leave the interface cable connected to the
computer and try to wake the computer while the camera is still connected. Some computers
may not recover from sleep correctly if the interface cable is disconnected while they are in
sleep mode. For details on sleep or standby mode, refer to the computer user manual.
• Do not disconnect your camera/camcorder from the computer while the CameraWindow (or
EOS Utility) screen is displayed.
• When connecting a battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, make sure
the device is fully charged, or use an AC adapter kit or a compact power adapter
(may be sold separately, depending on your model).
• When connecting an AA battery-powered camera/camcorder to the computer, use
batteries with sufficient charge, optional fully charged AA NiMH batteries, or an
optional compact power adapter.
• For connection instructions, refer to the camera/camcorder user guide. For connection precautions, see “Camera/Camcorder–Computer Connection Precautions”.

• Does your computer meet the system requirements?
Refer to the system requirements in the camera/camcorder user guide.
• Is your camera/camcorder connected to the computer correctly?
For connection instructions, refer to the camera/camcorder user guide.
Also confirm that you are using the correct cable, and that it is firmly connected.
• Are your camera/camcorder and the computer ready to send or receive data?
Some models of camera/camcorder must be in playback mode before data can be sent or received
from a computer. For details, refer to the camera/camcorder user guide.
• Is there sufficient battery power?
When using a battery-powered camera/camcorder, confirm that there is enough charge left.
When connecting your camera/camcorder to a computer, you can conserve battery power by using an
AC adapter kit or a compact power adapter (may be sold separately, depending on your model).
