Remove the battery for the camera for about 5 minutes and then after that connect it to a different USB port and see if your computer will recognize it once its connected to the USB port if still not detected restart the computer, If still not detected better if you try to use a different USB cable and also to try connecting that camera to a different computer....

Please RESET camera by going into Menu -> Internalize -> OK
Also replace USB cable and check USB port in camera that might have broken contacts.

    Please confirm computer USB port by hooking any other USB device and check does Windows recognize it? That will confirm that Windows itself is fine.
    Regarding RESET of camera, please see below image that showing RESET switch in DSC-F828,you need to press it.

Start unplugging computer power cable for ten minutes.

Try also a different usb port on computer.

    This camera should be recognised by the computer even without the camera software installed.

    Start testing the camera on a different USB port, straight on the computer (no USB hub).

    Test also a different USB cable.

    If still no luck do an hard reset, do the following:

    Unplug camera from computer.
    Remove camera battery.
    Unplug computer power cord.
    If computer is a laptop , also remove battery.
    Reassemble everything together.

    If that does not work, test the camera on a different computer, probably the problem is Windows.

    To fix Windows problem do a system restore to a date before the problem started.

    You find system restore on
    Start Button>>Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore in windows.

    If still no joy try installing camera software from camera cd, but usually you need to reinstall defective Windows on computer.

Try 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.

USB divice not recognized


I tried many ways to fix the problem. Someone suggesting unpluging it for 30 min. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of the camera driver. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of windows, and that didn't work.
I was running out of ideas. But I thought I might try restoring my computer to a prior date. This restore feature hasn't worked for me for 6 month. But, that day, luck was on my side.
Since I restored my computer to two weeks ago. My problem, is fixed!

Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you, but know that you are not alone! I am having the same problem as of three days ago. I have tried multiple computers and even got a new USB cable but the problem continues. Frustrating! Please let me know if you find a solution.
