Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera
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 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 such as Picasa.

a quick remedy is to get a memory card reader. remove it from the camera then insert the card into the reader's slot. its fast and reliable. camera software and drivers get messed up really bad sometimes. its the drivers that gets screwed recognizing the camera when its plugged in.
oh by the way, have you tried plugging the USB plug to another port on your pc?

A lot of people assume that they must use the cable and sofware that came with the camera in order to download their photos. The problem is that the cable/camera way is very problematic.
This link outlines a solution to that lost cable, lost software disc, or computer that just fails to recognize the camera.
