Cannot detect camera when going through USB

\015 Power shot s5is. plug into computer (tried 2 different cords) still says cannot detect camera. Loaded pics in april fine, now nothing. but did updated firewall and norton, anything to do with this?\015

Answers :

I just experienced this problem and went round in circles for a few hours before stumbling on the solution. My camera, a Sony Cybershot, has 4 USB Connect modes in the Setup menu: PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, and Auto. The only mode that would work to bring up the Camera Wizard screen on an XP computer was PTP. Once I changed the setting from Auto to PTP, the camera was recognized and able to connect to the computer. Somehow this setting had got changed to Auto or Mass Storage and that evidently causes a problem such that XP does not recognize the camera.

Previous to this occasion, the computer has been fine in recognising the camera software on "my computer". However, since having the computer wiped of a virus, it has not been possible for the computer to detect my camera when I hook it up with the USB link. The only recognition is a weird noise that sounds, different to the one I used to hear. I cannot understand what to do as the camera itself is working absolutely fine. Do I need to uninstall and then reinstall the programme?
