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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Usb device not recognized


Assuming a healthy camera battery, capable of holding a charge - try another cable / USB port / Computer first.

When it's same on all USB ports and a different computer, wiggle the USB connector on the camera carefully. If the connection is ok at some point, it's the camera USB port making bad connection.

My computer does not detect my power shot A400


If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

Setting the Date and Time manually does not influence the behaviour of the camera. However, if the camera is not 'recognized' by the computer: Check if the USB cable is properly fitted in the camera. Put the other end in a different computer USB port. The computer should see the camera as a Removeable USB Device. If the problem persists, connect the camera to another computer and see if it is recognized.

When I connect the cable to the USB port the computer no longer recognizes the camera connection.


You may have to reload software that came with camera. Or go on line and search for it. It is also possible that your USB port is bad. Try a different USB port on your computer.

Computer won't recognize my nikon coolpix 4600


You need to give some additional information. What OS are you using? USB, with all newer OS's is native and you shouldn't have to have any special drivers or software to get the camera detected by the computer. Simply plug it in and go to "My Computer" and it should be seen. If this is not the case, start with the physical connections first. Check the USB cable between the two. if a 2nd cable does the same thing, check a different device with the same cable and connection port on the computer. If the port works, and it recognizes another device, you have to look at the camera. If it doesn't recognize the 2nd device, look at the port on the computer. If ANOTHER port doesn't work, go into the Hardware device manager and ensure that USB ports have not been disabled. If it's the camera, chances are the port has died. If this is the case and you don't want to trade the camera in, try getting a $30 card reader and place the data card into the reader to ensure that the card isn't the issue. The reader will ensure that you can transfer the images and will also save some wear and tear on your camera.

My sony cybershot T2 is no longer recognized by any computer I connect it to via USB. But when I connect my sister's camera (also a T2), it works fine? please help


You may have a bad USB in your camera connector in your camera. Any repair shop should be able to repair for less than $50.00. Also check that you do not have a bad cable. You may also want to try on a different computer than yours. if it works you may have a driver or USB conflict with your computer.

Samsung s630


First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?

Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different USB PORTS on both, please.

Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.

Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.

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.
