arrggg. So I'm stuck. Anyone that has the Canon 1000D and has the install disk for XP and or Vista What Solution Disk Version came with your camera? Apparently I need to buy that Exact Version on Ebay. Getting the camera to work with the computer was not supposed to be the hard part of AP.

Regardless, as korborh said there really isn't a need for a specific driver with XP, the disks are for the associated software (EOS Utility). One other thing you can check is that your XP is up to date with Service Pack 3. Send me a PM if you need the CD.

Buyers remorse is definitely setting in. When I plug it in an turn it on XP says new hardware found "DCP" no drives found.

Good luck finding one.

Would a much newer version work?

Nor is there any for the 400D, 450D or 550D. Canon cameras require a consumer driver and a factory service mode driver. The Consumer driver for the 1000D is a PTP driver. The PTP driver is part of the XP operating system and is generic. In Factory Mode the Factory DCP driver is needed. This driver is part of every software purchase, so you need the OEM CD for the 1000D.

I believe that the utilities are available from Canon's web site but it's been a long time since I was there. At one point, I used the site to retrieve the utilities for my 350D so I could use it on a new computer. A few years later, I found the original box for the camera and inside it was the software disk with everything on it.
