    Default USB port problem?

    Noticed that lately when I connect my camera to my laptop, sometimes the connection will be disconnected automatically, and then connected again.

    Like when I am transferring my photos to my HDD, the connection can be lost, and then a second later the camera will be 'detected' again, with the options menu asking me what I wanna do...'open to view files', 'slideshow'..etc...

    Have tried 2 different cables, with same result.
    Is it camera port problem, or my laptop's port problem?

    No issues when using webcam and thumbdrives on laptop though...

    TIA!

    Yup read through that thread.
    However don't think it's the same problem.

    For my case the computer detects the camera and opens the option menu asking me what I wanna do, e.g. "Open to view files"..etc...

    Sometimes when I transfer files 1/2 way the camera will auto d/c, and then connect again.

    Have tried changing cables but to no avail.

    Anyone can help solve?

    Things to try before jumping in more expensive conclusions.

    Try the same 2 cables at another computer.
    Get a brand new usb cable to try.

    If the brand new cable still gives your continous disconnect problems, your USB connector in the cam might be loose
