Hi. I am new to this forum and I have a question. I have a new digital camera and my computer is not detecting the device through the USB Port. I have downloaded the software that came with my digital camera. My camera is a Canon A520 and I have reinstalled my USB Ports. Does anyone have any recommendations on what I can do to try and solve this problem? Thanks.
