Windows 7 suddenly not recognizing Canon camer RRS feed

  • Question

  • In less than 12 hours, my Toshiba Satellite L505 laptop which came with Windows 7 installed (bought at Best Buy) suddenly no longer recognizes my Canon Powershot A430. I've used it almost daily since I got it 9 mos ago and have done nothing to change anything on the laptop. I tried the device troubleshooter which told me it couldn't determine the problem. I'm not computer savvy and appreciate any help that you can give me. I do still hear the little "ping" noise when I connect the camera, but the screen to begin downloading no longer appears automatically. And it always shows the camera in devices too. Thanks so much for any assistance.
