Have tried that. Camera doesn't show up nor does anything diappear then reappear.
Sorry, can't see hardware or device manager on properties panel
OK, got into device manager but see nothing with yellow mark on list
Sorry, have only got one cable. It's the one from the old camera that I no longer have; no cable supplied with new camera.
Have nothing else using same type of cable. It may possibly have gone bad as you say but it always worked perfectly with Ixus 95 IS. Maybe I need to get a new cable and see if that solves the problem?
OK. Many thanks for you help so far.
