Hi,
Try this first turn off your computer using shut down or pressing the power button and then unplug it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then plug it back in.
You will not be getting the message 'USB Device not recognized' .

Hope this helps .

PowerShot A85 Digital Camera: when I connect my camera (canon powershot a85) to ...


Consider 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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Unable to download pictures


In the short term you can take the memory card out and use a card reader - at least that will let you see the pictures.

I have had that problem with other USB devices i suggest trying a different USB port as the USB port you have used to connect the X3 to is most likely malfunctioning.

Usb device not recognized


try connecting your phone to a USB 2.0 port.
Some older computers give this error. If you can find a newer laptop to try and plug it in it may recognize it. As far as a driver goes, with Windows XP or Vista you shouldn't need a driver disk at all. It is more like a compatibility issue than a software problem.
