Camera not recongnised by Windows when plugged in RRS feed

  • Question

  • My new camera won't show its SD storage disk under windows explorer when plugged in to my own computer by mini USB, but strangely when plug the same camera in to another Windows 7 PC, it shows up straight away as SD storage disk without any driver pre-installed.


    Thanks,
