You are correct. Canon does not provide a driver for Windows 7 64-bit. You have to change the communication mode in your camera and then use Windows Photo Gallery or other software to transfer the photos. Here is the response that I received from Canon tech support (it works):
"To connect your camera to a Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer, you'll need to change the communication mode.
To set your camera up for this, please do the following:
With the camera disconnected from the computer, turn the camera on. Press the "Menu" button. Now select the [Wrench, Hammer, 2] tab. Scroll down to "Communication" and press the "Set" button.
Select the [Print/PTP] and press "Set". This process is more completely described (and illustrated too!) on page 121 of your Digital Rebel XT Instruction Manual.
Now connect your camera to your computer and turn the camera on. Your computer should now recognize and have access to your Digital Rebel XT.
Unfortunately, Canon software cannot communicate with the Rebel XT when operating in this mode.
You may download your pictures using Windows Photo Gallery, or you may use a card reader to download images. If you haven't already done so, you may retrieve and install this program from Microsoft's download.live.com."
