I have a canon power shot SD600 (around 3 years old now). When I go to download my photos on the computer it tells me (the computer) that it 'can not detect a camera connection' and to check the connection. The connection is definitely in properly but the connection button on the camera does not light up in blue (as it usually does). The battery is fully charged and can not find anything in the manuals provided regarding this failure. cheers, Maura
