I just experienced this problem and went round in circles for a few hours before stumbling on the solution. My camera, a Sony Cybershot, has 4 USB Connect modes in the Setup menu: PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, and Auto. The only mode that would work to bring up the Camera Wizard screen on an XP computer was PTP. Once I changed the setting from Auto to PTP, the camera was recognized and able to connect to the computer. Somehow this setting had got changed to Auto or Mass Storage and that evidently causes a problem such that XP does not recognize the camera.

My computer does not detect my power shot A400


If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

Sony DSC-W170


Your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W170 came with a cord that had a little flat plug on one end and three separate plugs on the other end.  The single plug goes into the bottom of your camera.  The end that has three plugs has

(1) USB
(2) video output
(3) audio output

(2 and 3 are for hooking up to your TV)

If you connect the USB end to your PC and the single, flat plug into your camera, this acts as the USB cable.  There is no USB plug on the camera (for just a USB cord).

USB device not recognized


There are different causes for this problem. Shutdown your computer then turn it back on. If that does not fix it there may be a USB device driver on the computer that conflicts with the device sort of a Ghost device. Go to the link below for some tips on fixing this problem.
