Which operating system are you using? Do other USB devices work okay?

Post that message, shorty08, let's see what it says. Off-hand, do you have the camera set so that the PC can see it, maybe there's a PC button (or similar) on the camera, which needs to be engaged. Have you followed the steps, exactly, in the manual, to connect the camera to the PC?

It appears, from the manual, that "USB Stream" (as they call viewing on your PC) is deactivated by default, you have to activate it in the Setup Menu, see page 57.
