Re: USB connection problem?
The Best solution is to get an SD card reader. Then you take the SD memory card out of the camer, put the Sd card into the reader and plug directy into a USB port.
They are very cheap to buy and quite handy.

Two potential solutions. One would be to try re-loading your drivers to recognize the connected camera, and you may want to check to see if there are newer ones available from Canon. Sometimes computer updates replace some components which messes with previously recognized devices and/or the device manufacturer also updates their drivers to maintain compatibility. Second would be to just pull the flash memory card and use a USB adapter for it to plug into the computer. I prefer this method to constantly opening up and connecting my camera up for cabling. But then I always have extra flash memory cards, so I swap them often. There's less of a chance of problem reading from your USB adapter than by connecting the camera, which can sometimes cause conflicts after installing new hardware of software. I hope this helps!
Your computer must recognize your camera automatically,.
Go to control panel -- device manager and look if they are a device iht a yellow mark .
If have a yellow mark, select and rigt clik "uninstall"
Restart your PC

Try connect in another computer

As long as the cable ends match both the camera and the pc usb connection then the cable should work just fine. In fact there are universal usb cable kits available at most electronics stores. As to getting the pics from your camera to your computer... It depends on your operating system but most newer systems will read the camera as a portable media or a portable hard disk. So you would then be able to make the usb connections and then access the camera from your " My Computer" area assuming you have Windows.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
I had a problem just like yours and I went to walmart and bought a universal usb cable it was only about $20 and it comes with three or four different ones and I found out that my adapter works on any appliance that I need a usb cable for including my printer
