Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
There could be a number of problems so let's step through this. I will assume you are using XP for your operating system.
If you take the card out and use a card reader does the computer automatically recognize the card and show the contents?
If not it could be that the autorun feature on your computer has been disabled for security reasons (autorun is one of the ways viruses spread these days)
When the camera is plugged in and turned on and you go to My Computer does the camera show up as either a removable drive (just a letter it will not show as a camera) or does it show up under Scanners and Cameras? If so then autorun has been disabled and you will have to go to My Computer each time to transfer your files.
Test the USB port: Have you tried another USB device on the same port you are using for the camera and does it work?
Try a different USB cable.
That is about all I can offer without a great deal more info.

Hi, if your using windows and have the camera plugged into the computer via usb lead then you need to open my computer then you should see it listed under removable media devices.
