Windows XP camera recognition.

I am running Windows XP Pro with SP2 installed. I have a simple digital camera which worked fine with XP until I recently formated the hardisk and reinstalled XP. The memory in the camera is recognised normally as an added external drive, "E". Since the reinstallation of XP the camera is not recognised. Is there other setting I need to make? What could be wrong?

Any software with the camera?

Yes there is software but it suggests its only needed for use with Windows 98.

Have you had the camera switched on then the computer to see if it recognises it?

If not back to the top ^bump^

Have you loaded SP2 yet as added USB support is in that

This is very strange really. SP2 has been loaded. The computer recognises another camera and pen/flash drives. I have tried the offending camera in another computer and it is then recognised there. Perhaps I need to format and reinstall XP again.

It may be the cable is faulty

Thanks woodchip, but that option has been checked too.

Try running from Run box SFC /SCANNOW with the XP CD in comp if it says wrong disc keep pressing OK it will go to the end

'This is very strange really.' Can you reformat the cameras memory card/stick and start again? Worth a try!
