Dear Jbachelier,
This could be on the ground of hardware or software grounds...
if the problem is of Software then we can solve it at home.
1st reinstall your cam's driver.
2nd set your gadget to the factory defaults settings.
If problem persist then try your cam with another laptop or desktop. And see that whether such laptop or Desktop catches your gadget or not. If not then problem is of hardware nature. Get it serviced.

    I hooked up camera to a desktop and it worked just fine. So I assume the problem is with laptop. How do I fix this problem?

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 any photo cataloging program.

Lens removal on sd850is cannon


The quick answer is that you can not remove the lens.
If you want to work on it, you need a workshop manual and some very fine tools, and ideally a clean-room.

Camera No Longer Being Recognized


Does it connect to the PC via a USB cable? Then try connecting to a different USB port or if you have try a new USB cable. I had the same problem with my IXUS 400 and changing to a new USB port, directly to the PC - not a USB hub, it worked. However now I have several issues with my camera - no sound or image on the LCD screen, but I think these are unrelated.

Not acquiring pictures with any software


don't think it was the cable, they are a standard usb interface cable.
Had a similar problem, when I installed software for a new camera interface.
you can manually open the cannon software once the camera is hooked up to your computer. Its called "camera window" default install is start>all programs>cannon utilities>camerawindow>poweshot>camerawindow
