    Actioncam not detected


    Would very much appreciate guidance on how I can persuade my W10 Pro 32 bit PC (version 1909) to detect my action camera.

    Please bear in mind that my knowledge on these matters is minimal and I may inadverently misuse terminology.

    Last summer, I had no problems connecting the same actioncam, via USB cable, and copying video files from the actioncam to the PC. I didn't need to install any additional software (drivers?) - it just worked.

    Late last year the PC had slowed to a crawl and took several minutes to start up so, after a half day of 'research', I took advice from a website and disabled some Windows software (apps/services/processes or whatever) from starting using Task Manager. This was months ago and I certainly can't remember what I disabled. Disabling this software made a small difference so I left it disabled. The PC continued to work adequately for my non-intensive needs until yesterday when I connected the same actioncam that had worked fine over last summer and now the PC doesn't even detect it. The actioncam isn't visible in File Explorer - it's like the USB connecting lead is broken (so I've tried two more leads to the same effect).

    I've searched for similar problems and checked a couple of tutorials on this forum but, with my limited grasp of terminology (so not sure of search terms) I haven't found any info. on a camera not being detected (most similar problems concern Autoplay).

    Grateful for any pointers.
    PS I saw that CameraMonitorApplication was disabled in Task Manager so I have enabled that (to no effect).

    :)

    Humble pie time!

    It appears I had the actioncam on the incorrect setting (which was "PC Camera"). I just changed that to "Mass Storage" and it works fine. *Redface

    Problem is that these terms mean little to me.

    I appreciate your replies and apologies for wasting your time.
