For those like me who switched from a laptop to another laptop to a desktop, you’ve probably lost your Canon EOS disk eons ago, or it is super out of date. So I went down to hunt for the software download on the Canon site.
Luckily, nice people online wrote about where and how to get it. I am currently using Windows 8.1, but Windows 7 (its latest available version) works exactly the same as my OS. Good news!
I still use a Canon Rebel T2i, but I’m sure its software spans across other models too (don’t quote me on that). You can download the software here by opening the link and clicking Software. I chose the EOS Digital Solution Disk Software 29.1A for Windows (For users who cannot use the bundled CD) option because it contains everything.
It will prompt you for a serial number. If you don’t have one handy, I googled for one (“canon t2i serial number”), which led to me this page that has a whole list of serial numbers you can copy and paste.
Mostly this post was made for my own sake because I had to install it on my mother’s laptop (I had hope the SDHC to RAW transport would be faster on that one versus my old and broken Windows 7 – it didn’t make that much of a difference) and my own new desktop. (I had to dig up my Chrome history to find the links to download the software for the latter computer).
Hope this helps someone who is also looking for the Canon EOS software. Enjoy!
