Computer not recognizing digital cameras

Running Windows XP on an HP Pavillion f1703

Had no problem in the past downloading pictures from my digital camera.
The camera was a Kodak DX 3900.

One day the camera just stopped downloading. The computer just wouldn't recognize that the camera was even connected. I figured it was the camera, so I went out and bought a new Canon Powershot SD400......same problem.

So now I think it's something in the computer.

Whenever I connect either camera, the computer makes the "sound" that "says" new hardware has been connected, but no window ever comes up to do anything with it.

Even when I open any picture program and try to "get pictures from camera", it says that there is no camera connected.

I have tried connecting to all of the USB ports.....same thing.

Is there a setting in the computer somewhere that has been changed?
Is there anything I can do to get my pics to download?

Thanks

uninstall all instances of the camera and software, reboot a few times, then reinstall it.
have you used the scanner and camera installation wizard in xp manually?

No. I haven't tried that.
I'll give your recommendations a try.

Thanks
