Tried to get a Canon 20D going with Windows 7 today. No luck. Using or
trying to use

Microsoft "wiaamgr.exe".

Any suggestions?

Thanks

The usual suggestion (don't take this badly: it's just the usual suggestion)
is to use a card reader. Especially with an older camera, a cheap card
reader would probably be a lot faster. I'd personally prefer to connect the
camera, though.

FWIW, if memory serves, Canon used to not implement the standard USB mass
storage drive interface for their cameras. I seem to remember being
irritated about that with the 300D. So you may need a Canon driver, and
Canon has nothing for Win 7 on their US site. Sigh.

XP sees the 5DII no problem, FWIW.

Googling "Canon 20D Windows 7" yielded the suggestion to set communcations
to PTP in the camera menus.

David

I have placed this camera with another orgazition for their use. I was
sure it would be an easy use for them since it worked so easily for me
but when they hooked it up, using Windows 7, nothing happened. XP was
great and I was sure Win 7 would be no problem.

FWIW I found another possible solution which we will try tomorrow:

What you need to do is turn off your camera..turn it back on..hit the
MENU button. go to the COMMUNICATIONS and change it to PTP ... plug it
into your camera into computer and it should work perfect.

Thanks for the input.

I had a similar problem. Windows Vista wouldn't see my Rebel XT. The
downloads from the Canon site didn't do any good, so I got a cheap
card reader and now everything works fine.
