USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.

Can't see the camera from the computer. Everything works fine on the camera, but the USB connection doesn't work. It's like the usb driver chip failed.Put it on a linux machine, and can't see it from there either. I have reloaded the drivers several times. And it used to work on this computer. Other types of cameras work correctly with the same cable so it doesn't seem to be a cable problem. Does anybody fix these cameras?
