I have a real puzzle. I cannot transfer pics to my PC. I have not changed any software since it was working.
When I plug in the transfer cable (in either mode) the buttons on the back of the camera go dead. I cannot call up the menu to transfer pics to the pc and the PC does not recognize that the camera is plugged in. I have gone thru several trouble shooting steps with no success. I have:
I don't think the problem is in the PC as the buttons (except for the mode slide) go dead when any mini-usb cable is connected - even if the other end is not connected to anything.
The camera will take pictures and will let me review them on the screen. I use a SD card - same one since I bought the camera; but I don't have a SD card reader, so I cant transfer the pics that way either...HELP!

Need some clarifications: Is your PC having the transfer software and no upgrade in your computer? Turn on your computer and go to file explorer, do not open anything.
Try to plug the mini usb cable to camera and to computer ( camera off first ) then turn on the camera and press the playback button and see what happen?
Only option is to look for computer with card reader and upload there and save to portable usb drive.
If nothing happens then it is the end of life of the camera.

Buying a new PC: NOT the only option. You can get an SD-card "converter drive." I got 2 of them 5-plus years ago at Datavision for about $7.95 each. They don't carry those any more, but newegg.com has a whole bunch of them! Look carefully-- some are only micro-SD readers; you (and I) need SD readers. These plug into your PC with just a USB connexion. https://www.newegg.com/Card-Readers/SubCategory/ID-69/Page-2?PageSize=36&order=BESTMATCH

Resolution; but not solution to use this camera. I tried everything suggested; but the camera transfer capability is caput(dead). I did take the mini SD card with my pictures out and put it in a new camera and was able to transfer them from the new camera to my PC.
