Hi,
This is my first post. I have a 3-year-old Powershot that my computer no longer recognizes so I can no longer upload photos. Does anyone have any suggestions for why the computer no longer "sees" my camera when I plug it in and what I can do about it? I tried re-loading the software but that did nothing.
Thanks!
Dawn

What kind of computer? When did this start happening? Loaded any new software or installed new hardware around the time the computer stopped seeing the camera?

It's a Dell Desktop, just a little bit older than the camera. No new software loaded recently and it happened today. Last time I uploaded pix -- about a month ago -- it worked. The one other time it did not recognize the camera I restarted the computer and then it worked. This time I tried that, and nothing.

Are you set to receive automatic updates from Microsoft?

Yes, in fact there was a message the other day that there was an update and the computer was restarted.

Actually I just figured it out -- my cable had gone bad and when I tried a different one it now works.
Thanks anyway!
