Why does the usb connection not reconized?

Have you tried 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.
As to why your USB connection isn't working, there are a lot of possibilities. You may not have the right driver. If you're going through a USB hub, you might try bypassing it and connecting directly. There could be something wrong with the cable. There could be something wrong with the computer's USB port. There could be something wrong with the camera's USB port.
The main reason camera manufacturers include a USB port on their cameras is not so you can use it to transfer photos. They put it there because other manufacturers put one on, and so the marketing department insists they do so as well.

LG laptop usb ports not working

do you have the program needed to get what you have on your flash drive? If you don't have a photo program or pdf program or what ever to open it, it won't work. try connecting something else that uses USB port to it and see if that works, then you will know if its a program problem or your computer. if its the computer, you can replace it.

I have external HDD LG XD1 250 GB and WINDOWS XP can't see it.USB port is OK.

If the port is ok ie you can see and use other devices then you should check out the external drive on another computer to see if it isn't the problem. Usually what happens is the usb interface on the enclosure goes bad and the computer will either not detect it or it won;t access it. The drive inside the case is a standard drive type so the fix is simply to take the drive out and put it into a new enclosure. You can buy these for $10 and up. The hard part about switching is usually getting the old enclosure apart. The drive is held in by 2-4 screws. Some computer shops will charge and some wont if you buy the enclosure form them. It is something you can do yourself and there are videos and pictorial instructions online to show how this works.
Only once have I ever heard of a actual back drive, it is always a usb interface issue that is the actual problem.

My iOmega 1TB USB 3.0 won't stay connected to my MacBook. The connection seems to go in and out, and now it won't detect it at all. Is this a situation where I should buy a new USB cable?

Digital cables are very much unlike analog cables. With analog you will get partial signals like channels with fuzz with deteriorated images. Digital cables, like the one you use with your portable HDD carry signals that work very much like binary code, either OFF/ON. (1/0) The fact that you are experiencing quick connection and disconnections could easily be a faulty usb cable OR a faulty port on EITHER your computer OR the HDD itself. Try to borrow a similar cable to test that it is not the devices ports (your computer OR the HDD) before purchasing a cable. If the devices ports are not functioning properly you will have to RMA or use your warranty.
Hope this helped!

My 1 tb wont work on my computer anymore i was using it one day and then it just goes off and shows up in my computer to eject but wont open or anything

Please check your USB ports and make sure that there is no shorting or over current.Usually external Hard drives gets fused under the above circumstances.Please check on other USB ports or another PC.If it doesn't responds please contact your nearest service center and ask them for a data recovery.It won't come under the warranty claim if the damage is severe.
