Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A580 Digital Camera ?

My computer will no longer recognize my camera when I plug it in.


Answers :

Check in CTRL Panel SYSTEM Device Manager HARDWARE and delete the reference to the power shot.
Also you can try uninstalling it and then reboot and installing it again.
USB plugs can be a nuisance sometimes by chganging the port to suit whatever new installtion of a usb device wants to use. I have had this happen several times with my canon.

I can alter the port numbers But i am reluctant to tell you what is involvd iun case it causes you more grief than what you already have. just follow my basic suggestions and it should help to get it back. Do not have the camera connected when you reinstall it. Let it be rediscovered after installation, when you connect it WEindows will then load all the drivers and set the port for you.
