MSG_OPENDS Bummer error

When I connect my cam I receive the error:  MSG_OPENDS bummer error and a code. This error comes back several times per hour even when I disconnect the cam.
I reinstalled the software that came with the cam but that did'nt help.
Somebody familiar with this? and a way to stop it?

From this thread:

MSG_OPENDS is the TWAIN operation to open a (d)ata (s)ource (hence, "opends"). (TWAIN is a software API to allow applications to interact with "image acquisition devices" -- cameras, scanners, etc.). The "failure" could be any one of a number of reasons, but it's usually caused by faulty drivers. Have you tried updating your TWAIN drivers?

As I said, I reinstalled the software coming with the cam.
Where can I find the latest Twain drivers for Windows XP Pro?

Thanks again
I understand that you reinstalled the software. However, some digital cameras don't support TWAIN and others don't install their TWAIN drivers automatically when you install the camera software.

What's the make and model of your camera? The TWAIN drivers are device-specific.

everything is OK now - I reinstalled the drivers from Sony and it's working fine
