Camera window keeps telling me that the camera is not detected

\015 I've put photos on the computer several times before but this time it keeps telling me that the camera is not detected & to check connections. All connections are good. I went to the users guide several times and followed all instructions to no avail. I've even reinstalled the software.\015

Answers :

I had the same issue for me it didnt recognise my device. Turns out my usb cable was defective.
How about try these again
\015\0121- Uninstall all of the software related to Canon.
\015\0122- Install the drivers for your Canon ONLY.
\015\0123- After installing the drivers, plug your camera to a different USB port. (test your USB is working okay by connecting another USB device)
\015\0125- The drivers for your camera will be installed.
\015\0126- After it is finished, click start, then computer. Now you should have one Icon starting with canon.....
\015\012If you see this icon, double click on it. You will find one or more folders which contain the pictures stored in your camera. You may now download, delete Etc.
\015\012You either have not done above steps correctly, or your cable or your USB port is bad.
\015\012Good Luck!!!!!!

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop.
