Why won't my computer recognize my Nikon Coolpix S5200?

I'm trying to plug my camera into my computer via usb cord, but nothing happens when I connect my camera. It's like the computer does not recognize that anything is plugged into it! What should I do?

If your computer will not recognize your Nikon Coolpix S5200, try the following:

1) Removing the memory card and inserting it directly into computer

2) Unplug the USB port and plug it back in

None of these things work for me. Firstly, I don't have an SD card reader in my PC, so I cannot try that. And I have tried several USB cables, and even installed the Nikon Transfer to attempt to get my photos. Nothing works. I have a COOLPIX S7000


did u ever find out what was happening im in the same boat


my camera used to hook up just fine, but now its no longer being recognized by my computer.
