Hi, Does the camera have a memory card installed and the photos are on the card, if so you could use your multimedia card reader to access the photos.

Did you get this resolved? I'm having the same issue with my Panasonic TZ-7.

**EDIT**
PEBKAC - Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair. I've fixed this now by pressing the button on my camera that says "Connect to PC"...

If the camera allows you to choose between identifying as a camera, or as storage, please make sure that it identifies as storage. If the OP is still having problems, that is.

Yeah, could always be an issue with the configuration of the device itself. Furthermore...You don't really need to mount the camera.

There exist drivers and utilities for accessing a digital camera without mounting it (and at higher speeds than if it were mounted). Shotwell seems to do this sort of thing; when my camera mounts it asks me to dismount it before importing photos. And damn, it imports fast; 10-20 1+ MB photos usually take less than three seconds. Best speeds I've ever seen importing by drag & drop have been dismal by comparison.

...and there's always the best option, getting a card reader and plugging the card into that instead of accessing it through the camera.

Pretty much every digital camera is horribly slow to transfer data compared to what you get from the card itself, and as a bonus you never need to worry about compatibility issues and you don't need to have the camera sitting on your desk and powered up to transfer images from it.

Apart from tethered shooting and such tasks, there really isn't much reasons to connect a camera to a computer. At lest until some camera manufacturer starts paying even the smallest bit of attention to their USB connection speeds. And even then a simple card reader would provide better compatibility and less problems.
