Cant understand your thread fully,i take it that youve plugged camera into usb port,but windows doesent detect it,is that right and have you tried another device in that port?

yes mate exactly . ive tryed me keyboard etc. they work .

What happens if you turn camera on then plug it in,any response from windows?

Have you tried it with the cameras software installed?Though you shouldent need it.Anyone else got any ideas?

still get the nessage power surge. when i clik on the pop up i get 5 ports unused ? an 1 has a yellow question mark saying uknown device. ? baffled lol.

Have you gone to device manager,uninstalled any reference to usb,then rebooted,windows will reinstall,im clutching at straws.
