I just changed back to using my awesome Canon EOS 20D SLR and my Mac won't recognize it! It doesn't show up on Picasa, nor in Finder. I looked for drivers from the Canon website and there were none.

Never mind, I found my disk
I'm so used to the Mac's ease on everything I didn't even think about an install disk. LOL.

By your post I take it that you are wanting to tether your 20D to your Mac. Suggest you use a card reader to transfer your files to your computer to whatever photo editing software you use.

Just read the card. I have many, many Canons including 20D, 5DII, and 1DIII. I just read the card directly and select and move those files I wish from the card to wherever I want them stored (as well as my backup drives).

I've had problems connecting dSLRs to my Macbook. This is why I just got a USB card reader for $10 and saved myself the trouble of trying to get it to work.

My Canon printer already has a card reader, so problem solved

plug your 20d via usb then open image capture.

This will allow you to import all your images to a mac.

Let me know if it works

My experience with MBP's and usb connection to Canon cameras..lots of them...has been dismal. So bad I would not use a MBP as a tethered capture solution on a shoot.

I don't really understand the problem and no one else has been able to tell my my or find a fix.

I've never had similar problems with any windows box or laptop for many years, to the point I just purchased a new sandybridge Toshiba to use on location. Half the cost of a MBP, just as fast and it works every time.

Come on Apple get your stuff together....

I have a much more lowly Canon (not DSLR) that plugs right into my MacBook with no issues. The trick was to NOT install the Canon software.

That's wonderful but if you want to tether your camera for shooting you MUST install some software be it Canon, Phase One, Breeze, or Helicon Focus.

Nothing works in a reliable manner on a MBP, of different sizes and vintages with my setup or cameras. It has and continues to work flawlessly on windows desktops and laptops of different sizes, vintages and OS versions.

This a a Mac problem.

I truly wish it was not.

I apologise that I didn't comprehend that this was a tethering question.

My only suggestion would be that your OS is pretty old now, if you can upgrade that might solve the issue -- and would cost you a measly $30 to find out. I would of course check Apple's support technotes for a specific mention of your camera, or some photography sites to see if there is someone else out there who has solved the issue.

No problem, I'm on 10.67 2011MBP 15". Been the tech support and forum routes to no avail.

My solution is just not to use a Mac for this application, which stinks since I bought two MBP's. We, (my wife and I) will continue to use then as day to day machines but my photo work both location shooting and workstation processing will stay PC machines with Windows 7.

As for Lion, that will be a wait and see. I had MBP to NEC external monitor issues with the last non os updates (and had to reload so I'll sit for awhile to see on lion works out before I upgrade

I've used the Canon software to shoot tethered on a MBP with a 20D 5D and a 1Dslll. Just make sure the communications option is set to PC not PTP print, which is probably by default.

You might want to get the latest version of the Canon software. You can download it from the Canon site, but you'll need to have the original installed first.

The Canon software is not bad for tethered shooting, however I use Lightroom now which is a better. But the Canon software is on the MPB, just in case
