We had a lightening strike, since then my computer does not detect my iphone, printer, camera (it does detect the camera's card) so that I am faced with maybe buying a new computer, not a good time. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

You might also try USB Problems, MS FixIt - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-solving-problems-with-USB-devices ., assuming that these are all USB devices you mention.

 

I have experienceed one lightning strike which knocked out my computer then, result was a fried modem port, all else OK.

Thanks for the answers, the above link only applies to Windows Vista apparently. I can still put the camera card into its slot and read it, my iPhone gets charged through the usb port(s).
