Question about Cameras
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.

Sometimes a certain usb port, for whatever strange reason, will not detect. Try a different usb port, and see if that helps. You might have a bad cord, so try a card reader if you have one. You might install the CD that came with the camera, if you have it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
