    Default HELP! "USB Device Not Recognized"

    help!

    recently, when i plug in my Canon PowerShot A75 into my laptop and my desktop, this message keeps popping up:



    Does anyone know why this happens? It's very irritating. And the problem is, i tested the camera on my friends' systems and it works. At first I thought it was only my laptop, but then my desktop also has the same problem now.

    help!

    OH MY GOD I DON'T BELIEVE IT.

    i tried all means possible - reinstalling usb drivers, reinstalling camera and twain drivers, and hell, i even bought a card reader for 25 bucks just so i can retrieve my photos from the memory card, and guess what?

    i saw that the wire to the card reader's the same as the one to my camera, so i plugged it in and into the system.

    you guessed it. voila. it worked.

    THE FRIGGIN WIRE WAS THE PROBLEM.

    who would have guessed it? i duno whether to laugh or cry now, 25 bucks fly

    there was this discussion about cable thickness and quality of USB cables. Maybe can share the specs of your spoilt and working cable?
