    It would help if you specified your OS. Is it USB? Model numbers?
    But it sounds like the device driver didn't install.
    If you are using a windows box you can check the drivers status by right clicking on My Computer and selecting manage.

    It sounds like your system isn't finding the camera. Check in the control panel to see if your system shows the camera connected and active. If it does, you may have to re-install, make sure you pay attention to when your installation guide tells you to plug the camera in. USB connected devices can be touchy.

    Sorry, I'm working from memory here since I'm on a different system on my work computer.
