Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

Transfering photos to laptop

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I've owned my Canon A540 for almost two years and haven't had any problem whatsoever. But now all of the sudden I am unable to upload my photos. My laptop recognized that the camera was plugged in but that was as far as it got. I was able however to go through my external hard drive ports, but now this doesn't work.\015\012\015\012Is it the camera, or the computer, or the software?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015
