    Have you considered 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 phtoto cataloging program.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

I plug in my GEx5 to my computer but my computer doesn't recognize the camera


some cameras need to have the software installed on the computer, did you install the software? depending on the age of the computer some devics can be power hungry on usb ports and so will come up as unrecognised devices, ive expirienced this myself. or last but not least the camera has a faulty usb controller inside, there are a few reasons but the worst one is when its the computer is an old one and the usb ports just dont have enough power to run the camera.

1. If you can get into the camera menu, find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. 2. If you can't, remove the card and battery...press every button...leave it alone for 20 minutes....insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Stylus 770 SW Camera - causes Power Surge on USB port


Blown USB ports can happen. Most of the time, they still move power...like you can still charge devices through them, but the device won't be recognized. See if a hub will work.

Power surge


Connect the camera whilst it is switched off....then when you power on...it will ask if you want to connect via PC or bridge....if that still throws up power surge...you need to use a different cable as the power ballast on the cable is faulty.It is much easier to just use a card reader....cheap off eBay.

Power Surge error message


Hello,

 

 

I guess that this could be your error message:

"Error message when you wake up a Windows XP-based computer from hibernation or from standby: "Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port"

 

If it is the case, please try below solution:

 

SYMPTOMS

 

When you wake up a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer from hibernation or from standby, you may receive the following error message:

 

Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB Device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port. This error message is displayed even if there are no USB devices connected to the computer.   WORKAROUND loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround'); To work around this issue, disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller.

Note When you disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, you lose USB 2.0 functionality. That is, you revert to USB 1.1 functionality.

To disable the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, follow these steps: 1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. In the Device Manager pane, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 4. Right-click the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller, and then click Disable.

Note The name of the USB 2.0-enhanced host controller may vary. 5. When you receive the confirmation message, click Yes. 6.

Close Device Manager.

 

 

I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

 

 

Please let me know the result. 

 

you can mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com for any further assistance on this issue.

 

I'll be glad to help you.

USB error message


Have you connected any other USB devices to your PC? The USB ports can only supply a small amount of power and some devices especially USB connected hard drives consume more power than it can provide so they usually have an external power supply. Remove any other USB devices & try again. Did you have your camera connected before with a power adapter? Are you camera batteries fully charged? Let us know how you get on...
