Try removing all USB in Device Manager, pull the Camera USB from computer and restart Computer allow it to find USB items an drivers before putting camera Back on line if it say's found new hardware when you put the camera USB in click cancel, then load software and drivers again for camera

Have you tried a card reader

PS the reason that I am asking is that my comp does not me opening files from the camera, If I save from camera to drive first then it's no problem, and open the saved images not though's on the camera

one possibility is a bad cable

Woodchip. I can not save to hard drive because the camera is not recognised.It used to be seen as drive E but not now.
Wave.I may have a bad cable.Guess I must buy a new one.Thankyou all.Don

ps I don't have a card reader

card reader will work better than camera about £18 to £20

My Olympus couldn't be seen via card reader but works fine without - just as fast. I have to upload via Camedia (Olympus own prog), but can't upload via PhotoImpact. Once uploaded pics can be seen in any prog.
