An astute reader has asked about the lack of photographs appearing on this blog. The answer is that my camera and my computer have had a falling out. What I hoped was a minor tiff, that could be cured with a little cooling off (ie re-starting windows) has proved in fact to be a major disagreement and the two pieces of hardware have not been on speaking terms for a few weeks.
If you are an I.T. genius perhaps you can help me! Let me assure you first of all that I have tried various cameras with various cables, I have checked that the USB ports work with other things like iPod/printer, the drivers are installed correctly, and the camera can detect the presence of the PC and go into 'USB' mode ready to export pictures - but the PC still cannot detect their presence. Can you tell me how to PC to speak to my camera again?
