I have a Canon HF M30 we bought in Dec 2010 and my husband attempted to plug in the cable into the USB port of the camera and discovered it would not 'connect' to the computer. In other words it wasn't recognizing it (we've used it many times before w/no issue) so he unplugged from camera and looked inside USB port on Camera and there was a plastic piece that was broken and just hanging in there. We sent to Canon since it was still under 1 yr warranty and they want to charge us $282 to repair it

I've had my Samsung TL210 for nearly a year. I'm not sure what I've done differently, but my PC suddenly doesn't recognize the camera. I've always plugged the camera into the PC via USB, because the older PC doesn't have a slot for the smaller card or the adapter. When I plug the camera into the PC, the readout shows it connecting to the computer, then the readout disappears and the status light starts flashing. From there on, nothing happens.

Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer.
