You can either uninstall and reinstall the camera software on your pc or switch to using an external memory card reader instead.

The latter is faster, more reliable, and doesn't rely on using camera manufacturer's proprietary and often clunky software.

Possible that the card is having errors to conflict with the PC. If there was a password lock this is also possible.
You can put the card into the PC and check the properties to see if the card contains files. If so it is protected , make sure if you are using an adapter if there a small key pulled along to protect data.
IS files are present then use search key to open all files type with an * to search for all files.

When I switch on to download photos the camera lense slightly comes out and there is also no beep noise that normally follows, it is not letting me download?


Even if the USB cable is connected perfectly to the camera and PC it still is not sure everything in the cable and both connectors is 100%. Or even the drivers in the computer can be corrupted.
Start with another cable, and if possible try to connect another camera to the compeer, to check the computer acts normal to that.
Always try to isolate a problem to one thing.
For the time being, you perhaps could place the memory card in an external card reader connected to the computer, to put the pictures on your computer that way?

Can't download pics from polaroid digital camera to windows xp


Try 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

Please don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Could a photo printer corrupt my camera?


Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images. If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
