That's what I'd be looking for first, certainly.

I'd give it a go on my own laptop, but I've had a touch too much wine this evening to trust myself to do anything complicated with computers.

APT is the best program, I'm sorry you don't get on with it but I use the FB page to learn and use it myself!

this hobby if it not one thing it is another bug bearer that gets us down but you will get there eventually. What does not help is the OS updates that then removes stuff. annoying to say the least. You will get there eventually.

windowz has a habit of removing stuff... try re-installing the canon app that I have shared with you as it seems to be a driver issue

The camera might well work with this app yet APT may well require the native drivers for the 450D from Canon I do not know the answer to this question windows updates have a habit of removing stuff. yet you have avoided as to whether you managed to get the original 450D software with driver's this would help a lot. I've shared them with you so let's hope we can get to the bottom of this and put it to bed eventually and get you going on your way.

Can I just check, is it unable to connect in APT, but is visible in 'Computer Manger' in Windows - or can't Windows see it? 

You said it connects OK with qdslrdashoboard, which suggests the Windows side of things is OK... 

If this is the case, is the right version of digic being selected by APT? 

 

Computer reconizes the camera... Ive selected digic 3... But still says cannot detect camera in APT
