I've had my camera for years and have never had a problem downloading pictures to my computer until now. When I connect it via the USB cable, my computer sees it as a removeable disk drive and asks me to insert a disk when I try to open it. When I unplug the cable, the drive does not drop off the list of drives like it used to. I'm running Windows 2000 and I admit, I'm not real computer savvy. I recently lost my husband and he was the computer tech so I'm a little lost and don't know how to fix this. I'm guessing it's a computer issue and not a camera issue, not even a software viewer problem because this happens without even opening the Dimage viewing software. The only thing I can think of is that I've had a problem with Unsafe Removal of a Device warnings ever since I changed my old HP printer for a new one (same model). Ever since when I boot I get those popup warnings. I tried to correct it myself and even contacted HP but after they screwed my computer up I just figured I'd live with it so I'm wondering if there might be a relationship there. Any insights or suggestions?
