Camera not connecting via USB

Hello,

 

For some reason, my computer can no longer read my camera. When I plug in the cable, the camera screen switches and iPhoto pops up, but no camera appears in iPhoto. I have a Canon Powershot SX720 HS.

 

Thanks!

Try a new cable.  They have been known to fail without any signs of visible physical damage.  Get a quality USB data cable, not one of those USB “power” cables that they sell at gas stations.

I tried a different cable and the problem persists. Which means it's the camera or iPhoto...

Along that train of thought, I restarted iPhoto and now it's working. Problem solved?
