Whenever i turn my camera on and am about to take a picture, the USB message comes up on the screen, as it would when I plug it into the USB port on my laptop when I want to transfer the photos onto the computer. As a result, I cannot take any photos. When I tried to plug the camera into the USB port (via the cable) to my computer, the USB message comes up and then disappears and my computer says it cannot recognise the device being plugged in!!! Help!!!

It may be a USB port issue or a USB cable issue. Try an alternate cable or a different USB port. Try other USB devices on those same ports to make sure they work. Try using a USB card reader to transfer photos from the card directly instead of plugging in your camera directly.
1. Turn PC on. 2. Plug camera cable into Camera. 3. Plug camera cable USB end into computer USB port. 4. Turn on Camera... wait until camera show message 'USB, PC, Pictbridge'. 5. PC should be selected if not select by highlighting and press shutter button. 6. Press 'Shutter' button. 7. Window 'Autoplay' appears on PC. Select 'import' in Autoplay window. 8. Another window will ask you to name your picture folder. Give it a name. 9. The pictures download to the picture folder automatically. 10. Turn the camera off and disconnect cable from camera and from the PC 11. ENJOY!!
The problem I believe is the sequence or flow of the connection. With the camera turned off. Connect the USB cable to a computer USB port and the other end to the camera digital port turn the camera on by using the "Playback" button here is a diagram

You know there is an easier and better way of transferring picture files and that's by using a memory card reader. A memory card reader plugs into the USB port of a computer and the camera memory card is inserted into the reader slot. The computer then looks at this as an external Hard Drive. Both methods will need you to format the memory card after the images have been downloaded to the computer. Formatting the memory card in the camera in which it is to be used will clean the card and making it compatible with the camera both the camera and memory card can then communicate without errors.
assuming your camera is in perfect condition. remember that cameras come up with its own driver. your camera attatched to your friend's computer analyses only as plug and play feature. Always use card reader even to your computer by removing your memory card and this make your camera even safer from virus. Remember that downloading pictures from camera requires high reserve power or else it may cause to stop downloading or may even cause to malfunction.
