And how to install that Canon EOS Utility, DPP on OS X without the FUCKING CD!
Recently, a good friend offered me his old Canon camera. When I tried to install Canon utilities from their website, the setup program refused to install the utilities because I didn’t had the original CD inserted. CDs and manuals are often missing on second hand cameras, especially when they are 10 years old. The usual solution found on the web tells you to delete the Info.datx on the ./Contents/Ressources/ directory of the installation / update package but it doesn’t seems to work on the latest versions anymore. I’ve finally found this downloadable version of the CD released for another model of Canon’s DSLR. By chance, the download security check accepted my old DSLR’s serial number even if it wasn’t the same model. Open the following link, select the EOS Rebel T5 18-55 IS II Kit then choose “Drivers & Software“, open the “Software” section and click on “EOS Digital Solution Disk Software for Mac OS X (For users who cannot use the bundled CD)“.
