I used to suffer this problem with my PC intermittently not detecting the camera connection; when I upgraded to XP, my Samsung camera was not supported by the OS.

My solution was to buy a USB card reader and download the photos using that � meaning I never need to connect the camera to the PC.

USB card readers can be purchased for a few � these days.
