Question

I'm using a windows 7 32 bit computer with Backyard EOs and it isn't able to connect to the camera.  I realize that this is  a really old camera and it might no longer be supported.  Please confirm if this is the problems.

Please be sure that you also installed the Canon Drivers that came with your 5D1 (came on a CD in the Box - else go to Canon website to acquire).

The "Supported Cameras List is linked in the Page Footer (below).  And let us know exactly which version of BYE you are running (3.x.y)...

Thanks for the quick response.  I am running version 3.1.18 of backyard EOS

Yes I had a feeling I needed the driver, however I have not had any luck finding that on Canon's website. Unfortunately i don't have the original CD. The camera was given to me.

I'll keep looking for that driver...I'm sure that is the key.

Thanks again..

Try this.

https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/products/cameras/digital_slr/eos_5d.html?type=software&language=&os=windows 10 (64-bit)

Download and install EOS Utility from the site above, that should install the drivers.

If this does not work, download and install EOS Capture from the same link above.  EOS Capture pre-dates EOS Utility and has even older drivers.

Good luck.
