CompactFlash memory

by Peter Gallo

Went to Iceland and the first days pictures were put on a SanDisk Extreme III CF card.
Can see pics on card on camera but can't download them from the camera. Any ideas as what to do.
I usually put them on my IPad but no luck. Camera is a 30D.


Hi Peter, thanks for your question about CompactFlash memory.

I have been on a two week photo excursion-sorry for the delayed response. The Canon EOS 30D was almost a decade old, so it my be a little challenging to find any issues with image transfer specifically related to a 30D.

Most likely, it is a simple matter of changing one of the steps in the procedure you were using. I usually just tether my Canon cameras directly from the camera to one of the USB ports on my computer.

I used a Canon 20D camera, the younger brother to the Canon 30D for several years and the procedure would be the same. You can also remove the CompactFlash memory card and use a reader plugged into your computer or Ipad as well.

I have no experience with Ipads, so I can't help you with that aspect. I am a PC guy.

Best wishes for success with getting your images copied, something you should try to do immediately after any photo shoot.
