Hey everyone, this is my first time here. :thumbsup:
Recently I have found that although my computer will acknowledge my camera, it will not let me access any of the photos on it. I connect the camera to the computer with a USB cord and turn the camera on, but despite the computer showing that it knows the camera has been connected it will not show up as a drive in My Computer. The camera is listed in the device manager and it says that it is working, but still won't let me see the photos. I haven't uninstalled any of the software that came with it and it's all working just fine.
This is the same with my usb memory stick and my ipod, both of them will show up in the device manager as normal but I can't move files on or off either of them. This is especially annoying as I have work that I need to transfer off of my computer using my memory stick because my school won't let us use discs. My ipod will charge but will not show up in itunes.
I don't think this is a problem with my usb ports as I have a wacom graphics tablet that still works perfectly when connected to either port. Lately I've had some trouble with viruses, but I'm not sure if that's related.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
