Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
I have had my camera for about a year. I installed the software, and have not had a single problem until today. I wanted to download some pictures that i had taken over the weekend and when i plugged the usb cable into it (like i always do) the zoom browser/eos utility screen did not pop up asking me if i wanted to downlaod the pictures. I manually opened the zoom browser, clicked on camera settings and then connect to camera and it gave me a service message that said "cannot detect camera" why all of a sudden can it not detect? I thought it might have been a faulty cable, so i bought a new one. it says the same thing. can someone help me please!!!!!!
I just experienced this problem and went round in circles for a few hours before stumbling on the solution. My camera, a Sony Cybershot, has 4 USB Connect modes in the Setup menu: PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, and Auto. The only mode that would work to bring up the Camera Wizard screen on an XP computer was PTP. Once I changed the setting from Auto to PTP, the camera was recognized and able to connect to the computer. Somehow this setting had got changed to Auto or Mass Storage and that evidently causes a problem such that XP does not recognize the camera.

I discovered a workaround for this problem...I pulled the memory card and inserted it directly into my laptop, which happened to have this type of port. It allows me to pull directly off the card. I still cannot connect via a cable, but this at least lets me get pictures loaded to my computer.
