My computer doesn't recognize my camera ViviCam 3785 I could not get my new Canon SX110 to be recognized by my pc. I was using a similar cord for another device. After I switched to the white cord that actually came with the camera - voila! No problem, it worked like a charm. I guess all cords are not made alike?

I am having problems with my USB connection between my camera, a Fuji FinePix E550 & my laptop. It has worked beautifully up until a few months ago, then occasionally I'd get a message that the device was not recognized....if I turned the camera off & on a few times, the computer would open it. Today, I've been trying all day to download some pics, have turned the camera on & off, tried the USB cable in all 4 USB ports on the laptop and it won't open it at all.

My Vivitar waterproof camera will not power up-have replaced batteries but still not working. It has only been used a few times but is now out of warranty. Have noticed there is a slight salt residue in battery compartment. Don't know why this has happened as I made sure the compartment was properly sealed and I always rinsed camera in fresh water after use. Is it worth sending away to get it looked at? (Will cost $44.00 plus postage).

I have a ES55 Samsung compact camera for over 1 year and it always worked fine. Now, for no apparent reason, when I press the switch button, nothing happens; the "press play button twice" doesn't work either, and when I connect it to the PC, the amber light get flashing but I'm sure the battery is charged. This seems to be a recurrent problem with other users, anyone has a suggestion to share, please?

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB).

Polaroid digital camera i832 was working fine through USB cable. Received an Ipod shuffle for Mother's day, downloaded the software, loaded my Ipod and now my camera doesn't work.
