Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera ?

Can't transfer photos to mac computer. not detecting camera

\015 Drivers have been re-installed twice. Cable is correct and not damaged. Ports on computer have been checked and work with other equipment. I have been able to transfer pictures to my apple computer once, and once only. But now, when my Powershot SX100 IS is connected to the computer and I turn it on, the computer and programs do not detect that I have ANYTHING connected. Also, all buttons cease to work on the camera once it is connected. The blue light does not come on for the print/share button, nor can I make it. I cannot access the menu or any other features on the camera until I disconnect the cable. \302\240Help please!\015
