digital camera recognition problem

I have a situation where my digital camera has ceased to be recognised by Windows. I've re-loaded the driver from the CD that came with the camera (I've uninstalled a few times too) I've tried rebooting and letting windows find the camera. When I go into Control Panel/Scanners/cameras/add device.... the camera is not in the list even though I've installed the drivers using the CDRom install.exe and it reports - "Dual Mode Digital Camera 3.0M installed successfully. It shows up in the Add/Remove window too. I've previously had the camera working just fine... it was automatically detected by Windows and a Wizard opened up to ask if I wanted to download the pictures from the camera to my HD. I have it connected to the same USB slot it worked in before. The USB slot is working OK as is the camera and the USB cable is fine too. I have also tried connecting to the remaining 3 USB slots without any success. This is baffling me. It should be a simple plug and play operation but zilch is happening. I reinstalled Win XP Pro about a month ago.... maybe that has caused the problem ?
I would be grateful for a solution.
