Hello everybody,
I am new to the forum and also very new to the Rebel (EOS 300D, here in Italy), three days.
I would be very grateful if you could tell me what is the right/safe procedure to unplug the camera once the pictures have been transferred to the PC. The camera is always "busy" (blinking on the LCD) also after the transfer is over and there is no icon in the computer (the usual USB one, I mean) which I can deactivate the Canon trough.
By now, I am turning the PC and then the camera off, but I am pretty sure the thing should be much simpler!
Any help? Thanks a lot!

Turn of the camera first. While your PC is on you may remove the camera.

I would suggest that you get a memory card reader for your compact flash. It is much quicker and easier that way. You simply remove the card from the camera while the camera is off and insert the card into your memory card reader and then you can transfer files directly from your memory card to your pc saving your camera's battery life.
