First, you did post you e-mail address. I asked a moderator to edit it out so you wouldn't get spammed by bots that search webpages for e-mail addresses.
Check you Rebel manual to set it to PC mode. Once the computer detects the camera, it should load the drivers automatically. You can also try to force the process by selecting Control Panel/Devices and Printers/Add a device.
However, if you can't get the computer to detect the physical presence of the camera, it will likely not work. Many cameras have to be set in the proper mode to allow computers to recognize them.
Thank you, Col. for taking care of that. Unfortunately, for some reason, even in PC mode, the camera is not recognized. Just as unfortunate, we are in the process of moving and I had to put this on hold. I feel much better about having gone through the necessary steps, because of your help. I took the card out and used an adapter I had, and was able to access the pictures. Again, thank you!
