I can't find my camera in camera wizard or in "my computer" . I have used the same camera and cable in another computer and it finds it just fine.

If I run the Camera and scanner wizard it cannot detect camera.

Its a Kodak and I installed and uninstalled the Easyshare software and still did not find it.

Windows XP in Dell Laptop 600M

Yes, the camera is on . (I have already tried all this on another computer and it works fine.)

It will show in the device manager when powered up ( and makes the bo doink sound - USB connect sound).
It will drop off the device manager when powered done or disconnected ( and the other bo dunk sound - USB disconnect sound)

It will not show in "My computer" and the Camera and scanner wizard does not auto-run.
(I believe this is not an auto-run issue - I have tried that auto-run fix - that is for devices that do appear as a drive but do not auto run)

Also It will not show a device when the camera and scanner wizard is run in manual mode.

If you go to Control Panel/Scanners & Cameras..and click Add A Device, that does nothing?

It asks me for install disk because my camera is not on the list.

the only thing I have is the whole huge easyshare software package that I previously installed and removed.

I've used Easyshare before, I think the driver for camera recognition is within that package.

I reinstalled that portion and no change. Camera wizard does not recognize, nothing in my computer but i still get the usb connect/disconnect sounds and it does show up in device manager as the correct Kodak. I googled this problem and it seems to be common. There are various fixes out there that I don't dare to try and they all involve registry stuff.
