Since last week, when my I plug in my camera, it doesnt get detected. A pop-up saying the device isn't performing as fast as it could popped up, this is normal, but nothing happens after that. It doesn't show in my computer either. What's happening.
My camera is a Canon Powershot SD7910 IS

You've already tried...Control Panel/Printers & Other Hardware/Scanners & Cameras...Add an Imaging Device option in left column?

Camera must be on and attached, I believe.

It's a manual detection...not pick from the list.

Did your camera come with software/CD?

<<Canon Powershot SD7910 IS>>

No such camera listed by Canon...Windows isn't the only one who cannot identify your camera:).

Please check the model.

Canon says no drivers for XP, if you take a look.

If you received a CD with that camera...I suggest trying to find it.

A pop-up saying the device isn't performing as fast as it could
One usually receives that message when a USB 2.0 device is connected to a USB 1.0/1.1 port OR if there's a problem with the USB connection(port/cable).

Canon says no drivers for XP, if you take a look.
Drivers aren't required. The storage module of the camera should be accessible like any other USB storage device (flash drives).

Things to do:

1. Disable the USB ports via Device Manager, restart your PC, enable them back again. Try connecting the camera.

2. Uninstall the USB drivers via Device Manager, restart your PC, let Windows reinstall them for you. Try connecting the camera.

3. Check to see if you're able to connect the camera to a different computer.

4. Check the camera's settings, to see if you need to configure PC connectivity.

5. Check/replace the USB cable.
