First, check to make sure your usb cord is not damaged and has firm contact in both the usb slot on your PC and the slot on the camera. If everything is OK there try re-installing the software.
Now, if none of this works, that does not necessarily mean the camera is the problem. If you have another PC or can use a family member or friends, then try connecting to a different machine. If the problem is the same then you may need to have the camera checked out (but don't run off just yet, I'm not finished).
The above should tell you if the problem is the camera or the computer. If it is the computer, you should do a thorough cleaning and optimzation of your PC and then check things out. If it is the camera, try transfering your images to the SD Card and use your PC to read the card.
As far as the camera goes, you should still try and make sure all connections are good and firm and your batteries are fresh and strong before spending money on a repair.

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.
Mac's don't need a driver to recognize the camera however they usually need a specific program for different brands of photos. You can also try opening up iPhoto as that will usually recognize the camera. If iPhoto doesn't work and you don't want to install a new program you can also get a card reader that'll connect via USB and will avoid needing any program to transfer photos.
Hi, I assume that you are using Win.XP, - did you check; System Properties>Hardware>Device Manager Is there anything like yellow exclamation etc, especially on the USB section? - Is it BIOS USB function enabled? Maybe disabled by accidentally. - You said nothing working through USB, all ports are same? If this ocurred all of a sudden, than I think you have a software problem. I have a K100d, its been seven months now and ~6500 photo. My USB cables&fittings are fine, I always using USB port to transfer photos, no problem at all. I hope your problem will be solved in a short time. Sincerely -halotheracer-
the dock won't charge batteries that are ni-mh kaa2hr or Li-ion battery pack - so check that
about the printer's ability to recognize the cam, try this.. remove batt, put cam on top of dock (when cameras are on a dock, they can use the dock's power so you can print pictures without batteries) check if somethign will come up on the cam screen
if not .. either would need to be sent in for repair. a digital rep will advise you to send both so the repair center can check
