The easiest fix (or rather, a workaround) is to use a different method of transferring the pics to your PC, the method 75% of use these days, which is to use a card reader
which plugs into a USB port on your PC (no external driver required). Remove the memory card from your PC and push it into the appropriate slot on the memory card.
This is far easier than messing about with a cable connected to your camera everytime you want to transfer pics.
Card readers are inexpensive, just make sure it has a slot for an SD card.
