I have a atlas PC using XP. When I connected my new Canon digital camera into the USB port it locked up the computer to where I had to unplug it. Now it will not recognize any USB devise at all. In devise manager every thing looks ok. I installed a smaller cloned HD for this computer and still no joy.So now I feel it must be a hardware problem and i should buy a PCI USB port card. Will I have to disable the on board USB and can I still use the front USB outlets some way thanks for any help. joe

Did you install the canon software for your camera BEFORE you hooked the usb cable to the computer? On some cameras NOT doing this will cause problems with the USB. As is typical of canon their website is very hard to use so i gave up on that.

Although i am going to put this article up here i would advise you to not use it unless you are very confident you can do this. I am hesitant simply because done wrong can render the USB to not working at all.


Please be very careful here as messing with the registry can make the whole computer completely useless.
