There is no solution beyond opening the cam and resoldering the joints,this hardware failure ocuurs in this model due to a design flaw,the usb that slides out is connected internally with wires to the system board,eventually due to the constand bending flexing on the same stress points,from being ejected and retracted a short developes.soo now the only solution is to transfer via the sd expansion slot on the side of the camera.

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 ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer.

How do I import photos from my camera?


There are two ways to import your photos.
One, your camera should have an sd card which you can eject and put into your computer. The sd card should have all your photos and videos in it. Typically the card is located near the battery and you can press down on it and it should pop out. You may also need a sd card reader or micro sd card reader if it doesn't fit in your computer.
Second, your camera should also have a usb port, whether micro or mini or whatever. It should have a port to connect to your computer through a usb cable. In this case, just connect your camera to your computer and it should show up on your computer like an extra drive where you can go in and see all your photos.
Also, the folder that holds everything is usually labed DCIM i believe.
Hope this helps.
