6D and EOS Utility
4

This is a tip for anyone else as dumb as I am....

When connecting the 6D to your computer by cable be sure that Wi-Fi is DISABLED!

I spent 3 hours last night trying to transfer images from my 6D to the computer and the computer wouldn't recognize the camera.  I played with the cable....    I re-installed the software....    Several times I looked at the manual...  ...you know, when all else fails read the instructions!?#%&......

And then, I noticed in the manual some fine print in a footer at the bottom of the page (130) it said that Wi-Fi must be disabled or the computer will NOT recognize the camera....

With this little adjustment everything started working!!

BTW, I am exited about the Wi-Fi capabilities of the 6D and connecting it to my smartphone.  I've been trying to do "pole photography" with my old camera but really need to have some way to look through the viewfinder when the camera is sitting out at the end of a 15' pole.  The Wi-Fi is going to be great for doing this!
