Trouble downloading photos to computer

I have been downloading my photos to the computer for a few years but now it won't work. I connected it to the computer and turned it on and nothing happens. Usually a prompt appears asking me what I want to do but this does not happen anymore.

    I am having a similar problem. I have been doing fine with my card reader but my son dropped my camera tonight and when i went to transfer my pictures to my computer a box popped up saying that there were no files that Mac OS X could read I have tried erasing them all and taking some again but the same box keeps coming up. I even tried a new xD card. I am hoping that there is a quick fix, thought I would try here first...
    On the side, does it mess up the xD card to take it out of the reader with out "ejecting" it, I had to do this because the drive icon wouldn't show up on my desk top after I clicked ignor in the above mentioned box...

Forget your USB cable Jill. Buy a card reader that reads xD cards (Fuji have one on their website for £4.88+£3.00 P&P, or I picked up a multi card reader from Jessops for £13, which says what it does on the box - ie, can be used for other picture cards beside the xD card) Remove card from camera, fit in the relevant slot on the reader and plug into a USB port on your computer. Your computer will automatically recognise new hardware, and the magic task box appears after a few moments inviting you to "Copy files to your computer", etc., and off you go!

Canon power shot sd1000 won't connect to my computer anymore. The computer does not sense that there are pictures on the camera!


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Panasonic Lumix DMCF2 Digital Camera, computer does not recognise device


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 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.
