The 400D was released in 2006. 15 years is multiple lifetimes for electronics. Canon long ago dropped support for DIGIC II cameras. The only reason that you stand a chance is because of the diligence of the BYE developers. If you try to connect with the latest BYE version and a Trial license, but are not successful, try the following options.

  1. Make sure that the camera shows up in the Windows Device Manager as an imaging device.
  2. If Windows recognizes your computer and asks you what you want to do you must choose the Take No Action option
  3. If you installed the Canon EOS Utility, you need to be sure that it is not connected to the camera, or better yet, not even running.
  4. If Windows displays your camera as an Unknown device, you may need to install a low level driver for the camera. It should be on the DVD that came with the camera, or could be downloaded from the Canon web site.
  5. When you start BYE and attempt to connect, first try the Canon 210 drivers option. This uses an older version of the Canon SDK that should support your camera.
  6. You might also try to run BYE in Windows 7 Compatibility mode.

Hi, the 400D is supported, and it is in the camera support grid.

However, please note that this model is older, and it does not have live view.  Additionally, it is not capable of doing BULB images over USB, you would need a serial cable to take pictures over 30 seconds.

Regards,
