Can't get your Canon 10D to communicate with Vista?

A solution has come my way, moments b4 the 45 treatment to both

The solution is simple; Change the communication setting, found in menu, from "normal" to "PTP" , whatever that is. I found no mention of the communication options in the manual, yet. How lame is that?

Now for some ranting: What are these manufactures thinking, are they even worth our hard earned money? I can go out and get a much less expensive camera from China and have very little difficulty getting my photos and videos off the device. I won't pay another penny to either SONY (shit of new york) or canon products, they are playing games with the consumer and packaging too much garbage software with their devices.
