Hi all,

I just got my new baby in the mail today (Canon Rebel Xsi) and when I tried to install the included software I got a pop up that said simply, "Insufficient screen resolution".
I'm on a Macbook and I don't see why that screen wouldn't be enough, or why it wouldn't let me install because of that.
Any advice?
The software is the EOS Digital Solution Disk (ver 17.1) with photostitch, EOS utility and all that jazz.

I got that software with mine too, but I never installed it. My computer is a Dell, I don't know if that makes a differece

What resolution have you set for your MacBook? It should be at least 1280x800, 1440x900 for the 15" display.

As an alternative, you can download the software here. The installers are the same, but it may be worth a try.
I have EOS Utility an at least three different Macs running OSX and never encountered this issue.

Ah, It seems as though I had set the res down (don't remember why) a while back and never set it back up. It works fine now! Sorry I wasted your time on my stupidity.

hi Nathanael, I'm glad you got that working. just one question, do we really need that software? I never installed it in my computed, and I haven't had any problems with my pictures

Some of the Canon software is worth checking out Digital Photo Professional is a good organizer and there is probably a RAW convertor too if you shoot in RAW...

I do shoot in RAW, but I'm working on photoshop CS3, do you think I still need that other software?

Probably not. Some people like DPP, some don't. I've tried it and didn't. I do use EOS Utility to edit camera settings. Remote shooting, also, can be done here.

Nothing like a software installation failure message to make you feel inadequate. ;-)

CS3 can handle RAW, so you can just use that. I haven't had a chance to try out this program, but I'll let you know how it goes. Right now I'm just using iphoto (haven't broken the bank with CS3 yet) and I haven't tried processing RAW in iphoto yet (downloaded a patch last month, but haven't tried that yet either).

I use DPP all the time. My images sometimes take a little time with Windows Viewer...both RAW and JPEG...especially when I am going through groups of 1000. So I use DPP for batching from RAW as well as the Quick Viewer Tool for viewing the JPEGs in my folders. Fast and easy programme.

I like DPP as well, especially after a trip when I have a ton of pictures. I actually started using it after watching a tutorial on this site (was that yours Judi?)

The remote capture feature that comes on the canon cd (as Zueszen mentioned) is pretty cool too - although I've only ever used it to impress my students in a demo... However, I've seen it used for more practical (and usually boring) purposes too - like doing 1700 id mugshots at the school I teach in...

Hi Nathanael
Did you ever get this resolved? I've got the same problem with my new Advent 4211 laptop (badged MSI Wind), I'm guessing its because my screen res is 1024 x 600 (yes 600!)
