From what I can tell from reading the manual for your camera, you need to do the following things:

Make sure you have administrative rights in XP

You must install the driver for the camera before connecting it to the USB port (this will be on the CD that came with the camera - let it autorun & select the driver install option). When the install is complete & the camera is connected, windows should detect it & start the Add new hardware wizard. This should complete automatically.

The USB stick must be in the camera when you connect it to the usb port.

The camera should be switched to 'Player' mode

If you find that windows still doesn't detect the camera when you connect it, try unplugging any other USB devices you have & make sure the camera is connected directly to a USB port & not to a hub.

Let us know how you get on
