Troubleshooting USB Cameras and Scanners

I have a Fujitsu FinePics E550 camera that appears to install when plugged into a new USB port but then does not show in the My Scanners or My Computers areas.  When I first installed it, then it was there.  I have had this problem before with other types of USB devices.  It seems like after the drivers have a problem, there is little way to get those devices working again without a re-install of Windows.  Is there a clean-me tool I can use to get rid of these devices entirely so that Windows XP will correctly recognize them again?

Have you tried removing the USB hub in Device Manager and allowing XP to reconfigure its drivers?
