Pc doesn't recognize digital camera

With increaseing frequency, when I plug my camera into my laptop, I get an error message (along the ines of "USB device not recognized. Press here for more help""). When I do press here, I get told to reattach it, and if that fails, replace the camera. But, it has some irreplaceable photos on it. Any thoughts on (1) why I am getting this message, and (2) cheapest solutions (download & buy a new camera, buy a camera with the same SD card, buy an SD card reader, download updated drivers (already tried, without success), etc.)? Thanks!

    It turns out the USB-MiniUSB cable was bad. I got a new one, and am all set. Thanks for your help!

I'd say the easiest and best solution would be to buy a card reader. Not only would a reader get your irreplaceable photos onto your computer, it will work with your next camera and computer if and when you ever replaced either.

Card locked error message can't use camera


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I had this problem today and you might want to check this
from PC's menu = go to my computer right click and select properties
select device manager,
locate "canon camera" which may be under portable devices as mine was
There is either a plus or minus sign next to it. If it is negative as mine, delete this driver. Make sure your camera is off and unplugged before you delete it.
Plug camera in, turn on and the camera should download the driver again.
It worked for me - I'm not technically brilliant but basically, the driver wasn't working correctly.
If you can't find the same settings, call customer service - they were great.

You didn't say what operating system you are using in your PC. If you have Windows XP or later follow these instructions. Since you apparently have the driver and software on a CD, unplug the camera from your PC, remove the camera software from the PC, remove the driver using the Device manager, restart the PC, then plug your camera into the USB port. Allow the operating system to find the correct driver when it notifies you of finding a "New Device". Normally that will solve the problem. If it does not, then reload the software.
