Every time i plug it in to my pc it says 'checking USB' on the camera like normal but then says 'communication error'. ive tried all the USB modes, ive re-installed the software a few times ive tried plugging it into all of my USB ports but it does nothing.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be the fuel filter. Since then I also run Sea Foam Engine Treatment every 2nd or 3rd oil change, half in a full tank of gas and half in the crank case. The only time I've had the problem since is when I've forgotten to add the Sea Foam when I should.
It sounds like your talking of a Firewire cable, the PC must have a firewire socket, it is like a USB but fatter, as for camera end no problem all you need is a converter to push onto the cable before you plug in camera.
This camera does not require a driver on windows XP. The most common cause of USB related communication issues is the USB cord itself. Second most common cause is the USB port on the camera as they are easily damaged.
You can fix the problem by buying a USB card reader instead of plugging the camera directly into your PC. If you use the camera's USB port it will eventually fail, they simply can not last through years of plugging and unplugging and the bumping around associated with use of the on board USB port.
With the card reader you simply remove the memory card from the camera, plug it into the reader and then proceed to get your pictures. It is simple, reliable, and all around the best solution to this and all problems related to communicating with your camera over USB.
