Might be as simple as a damaged lead.
Have you, or a friend got another device with the same type of lead?
Try it, see if it makes any difference. Also try a different USB socket in case that is the problem.
If all else fails, you could just get a memory card reader & work around it that way.

Computer doesn't recognize camera


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
