    Canon Digital Rebel/EOS 300D PTP Driver

    Hi - I have a Canon Digital Rebel/EOS 300D that I have successfully
    been using in conjunction with a Windows Vista machine for about 12
    months via the PTP connection.

    However, when I recently connected the Camera I was prompted for a
    driver for the camera, which as far as I'm aware Canon does not have
    a
    Vista compatible one for this camera. Instead, it is supposed to use
    Vista's built-in PTP driver.


    Any idea what may have caused this change in behaviour and how to
    resolve the problem?

    As a workaround you can use a card reader. A side benefit is it saves usage
    of your camera battery.

    The Bob's suggestion may be useful but #1 it is inerresting to find out what
    happened to the driver and #2 I am not sure that with the solution he
    offered you may avoid it in the first place.
    The link below is to a MS website PTP driver (Picture Transfer Protocol). It
    offers insight into the .inf file and offers some troubleshooting. I did not
    examine int closely.
