If your camera is not recognized automatically, try connecting it to a different USB port. We recommend directly connecting it to a USB port on your computer, not through a USB hub. If you are using the camera with its base station, please make sure that the neck is firmly pushed into the base and making the connection.
If the camera is plugged into one of the ports in the front try one of the ports in the rear of the computer, or vice versa.
If you are using Windows XP, please check that you have Service Pack 2 or later installed as this is required for Windows to properly detect plug and play cameras. Service Pack 2 is a free stability update available through the Windows Update tool.
