Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera ?

My computer does not recognise my camera when I plug it into my computer to download pictures? It use to bring up a window that I could select an option to download all photos from the camera to the "My Pictures" folder under "My Documents" and then it would usually delete all the photos from the camera and only safe them on my computer.

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!
