Answer to "Why does my laptop not recognise the camera when plugged in via USB?"I got my USB cable tangled in my chair and knocked over the camera, landing on the USB cable. I guess I bent the pins or something because a new cable did not solve the issue. Did something similar happen to you? I just take out the SD card and plug it in to my SD card reader, also thinking about purchasing a WiFi SD card. This probably didn’t help you.
