Cautions on Windows Me
--------------------------------------------------------------
1. General cautions
--------------------------------------------------------------
(1) The camera icon on the screen may stay displayed, if the camera is 
not operated for a long time, the camera's main switch is set to <OFF> 
or the interface cable is unplugged while the camera is connected with 
a computer. The camera may not function correctly during this condition.
Shut down and restart the computer before connecting them again.

(2) If you have set [Save all pictures to this folder] in the camera 
properties, extensions are not added to the names of saved RAW image 
file names. Choose a saved image and input an extension (CR2) or save 
the image using EOS Viewer Utility. 

(3) Even if you have set [Actions] in the camera properties, in some 
cases the settings may not be reflected.

(4) When a camera is connected, a started up program may display warning 
messages [Cannot find the TWAIN data source. Reinstall the scanner 
software.]. 
In this case, use WIA-TWAIN driver, selecting [WIA-model] from the TWAIN 
selection screen in the start up program.

(5) Using WIA-TWAIN driver selecting [Detail] from the view menu may result 
in an error message or a system shutdown. If this happens, select the 
[Thumbnails] view setting to use the WIA-TWAIN driver.

(6) The WIA Driver does not support capture or management of RAW image 
files. To capture or manage RAW image files, use EOS Viewer Utility.


2. Cautions on [Scanner and Camera Wizard]
--------------------------------------------------------------
(1) Rotating an image in the camera may result deleting shooting 
information. Rotate images saved in the computer.

(2) Saving an image in the camera into a computer may result thumbnail 
display with wrong rotation orientation.

(3) Setting automatic saving of all images when a camera is connected 
may result incorrect time setting of saved images with several hours 
advanced or delayed.

(4) If you copy image data into another folder on the window displayed 
by selecting [Explore Camera (Advanced)], subsequent operation of the 
Wizard may be unstable. Do not copy image data on the window displayed 
by clicking [Explore camera (Advanced)].

(5) RAW images in the camera cannot be saved to the computer with the 
[Scanner and Camera Wizard].

(6) If you select [Cancel] during copying images, copying may not be 
possible afterwards even if you try to copy them again. Set the camera's 
main switch to <OFF> and exit [Scanner and Camera Wizard], and then set 
the main switch to <ON> again.


3. Cautions on operation on the Explorer
--------------------------------------------------------------
(1) The thumbnail list may not display correctly when the camera icon is 
selected. If this happens, select [Refresh] from the [View] menu.

(2) Date and time may be recorded with several hours advanced or delayed 
when an image in camera is saved into a computer by dragging and dropping.

(3) If there are multiple files with the same file name in the camera, 
errors may occur when displaying their thumbnails.
