Thanks for your help,
Thanks for your question.
Congratulations on using the Canon Xti. That's a camera that was released 10 years ago. In today's rapidly updating digital camera world that's ancient.
The Canon Rebel Xti (400D) still sells well despite it's age and has earned good praise from its many owners. Several questions have come in about the Rebel Xti over the last couple of months.
I am not exactly sure of what the issue is you're having with copying your images to your hard drive, but it is not a problem with your camera. If you can see the images on your Xti LCD screen, then the card is not corrupted.
This is how I transfer images from my cameras to my computer:
1. Make sure camera is off first.
2. Remove card from your camera.
3. Insert card into a CF card reader and connect card reader to your computer.
Most computers will "recognize" that you've inserted a memory card in and will automatically pop up a window so that you can either "copy" or "drag and drop" to the location on your computer you want.
If this doesn't happen you may have to go to "my computer" and find the memory card.
Robert, please feel free to email me directly at bruce at canoncamerageek.com if this doesn't help you.
The answer to your second question: The exact aperture you use does not affect whether the bracketing mode will work or not.
You have to choose the best aperture for the shooting situation that you're in and the results you want to achieve. Photographers usually pick the aperture they want based on the depth of field they want to achieve.
