    Got a new digital camera, installed it and it ran fine it transferred pix, did everything it was supposed to do. A couple of weeks ago, my hard drive went bad and had to be replaced. Installed my digital camera on the new hard drive. Followed the directions to a "T" just like before, only this time the computer won't recognize my digital camera. I went the uninstall, reinstall route everything works fine until it comes time to transfer pix from my camera to the p/c. Nothing happens, no pop up windows, nothing.
    Any advise?
    I'm not a really computer savvy person so I could have easily missed a step along the way but I really don't think so.
    Thanks, JW

    I'm assuming that you're plugging it into a USB port. Are you sure that the USB ports are working correctly since your reinstall?

    Try something else in that port or go into device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation points.
