Damn Pute is causing me some severe grief at present! Bought a new camera a couple of weeks ago and when trying to down load the pics the pute wouldn't recognise the camera ... said it was attached but wouldn't play! Not to be outsmarted by a chunk on plastic I got my trusty SD card reader out but nada ... wouldn't play with it either .. knew it worked as took it to work and downloaded all from there no problem! Its not the USB port either as put in a card I had used on the pute for ages and it worked in straight away. So problem seems to be any new USB devices. Got onto the XP site and downloaded Microsoft's "Fit It" programme which I ran but still no joy! The blurb on Microsoft site says its a corruption in the registry but nothing I could see as how to fix it manually or what I was supposed to be looking at. Anyone else suffered anythig similar and what did they do to get it working again???
