When I connect my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS camera to either of two laptops via USB cable, I get an error message stating "USB Device Not Recognized - One of the USB devices attached to this computer...


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.

USB upload error from Panasonic DMC-TZ4 to my laptop (Thinkpad T)


Are you trying to copy your photos off the camera, or use it as a webcam?
If you are trying to copy photos, then make sure the camera is in the correct mode, eg: playback mode. if the problem still occurs then try a different USB socket on the computer. If that doesn't work then possibly the USB socket on the camera is damaged (this is a common fault). I would suggest getting a SD card reader that stays connected to your computer full time, take the SD card out of the camera and plug it into the SD reader. That is a more reliable solution.

If your camera connects with a USB cable you should be able to download the USB driver from Vivitar's web site. Once the correct USB driver is installed Windows (2000, XP, or Vista) should see the camera as a removable storage device when you connect the USB cable to your laptop. Then use Windows explorer to copy the photos from the camera (removable storage) to your hard drive.

Not responding to my laptop


The most common cause associated with the PC not detecting the camera is due to the fact that either the devie drivers have not been installed, or are corrupt. It is important to thoroughly read the Software Installation instruction manual as with some Cameras, the user is required to connect the Camera via the USB cable first, then insert the CD that came with the camera and then install the software and drivers. With other Cameras, the reverse is necessary, eg., you are required to install the software first and then connect the Camera via the USB cable. My experience has convinced me that even though Camera manufacturers recommend one or other of the 2 methods mentioned above, for whatever reason, sometimes the drivers just don't get installed. This may be due to things peculiar to your own pc system or conflicts with other software on your machine which prevent successful installation of the camera software or drivers. If this is the case, then you can access Device Manager in your PC and scroll down to USB Serial Bus Controllers and check to see if the USB and other drivers are installed. In most cases if the software has been installed but the drivers are not, or are corrupt, this will be highlighted in Device Manager with a Large Yellow ? (question mark) From there you have the option to check if the device drivers have been installed and also if the device is reported as working correctly. You may then engage the help of the Hardware Wizard to uninstall the drivers if they are corrupt, or install them if they are missing. Whichever is the case, it is usually necessary to restart your PC so that it can detect the camera when it has rebooted up. To locate Device manager on XP > click on Start > then right click My Computer > next left click Properties from the drop down menu > and then from the Sytem Properties Window which comes up, > left click on the Hardware Tab > then left click on the Device Manager Box and you're there.
