    Computer is recognizing the camera through plug&play, but not installing
    device drivers. The drivers on the included-with-camera disk are not
    transferring onto computer. Also, the Windows XP drivers are not available
    to transfer the pics off the camera. What do I do next?

    device drivers are conventionally installed before you plug a device in.

    Open up device manager by going to the run command and typing in
    devmgmt.msc
    from there uninstall the device and reinstall

    You probably don't need any drivers. The Panasonic cameras I've seen
    all emulate a removable disk, which XP handles natively. If your camera
    is not showing up as a disk-like thingie on your desktop, you might tell
    us what model the camera is. It's hard to diagnose with no detail.

    Make sure the camera is set to connect as a usb mass storage device and not
    PTP.

    Don't even screw around with downloading from your camera.
    Get a $15 USB Card Reader. Fast, simple, reliable, hassle-free.
    It will be the best $15 you ever spent on your computer/camera combo.
    You will soon find yourself using your memory card as a thumb drive or a
    Zip drive. The combination is very powerful and useful.

    Easy buy USB 2.0 Card Reader they are cheap chips, simple to use plus if
    you get a good one they are much faster in downloading/uploading to the
    computer than from the camera plus they are more flexable too.

    Also possible that the camera is not in the correct connection mode. It
    might be in picture bridge mode (if facility available) or some other mode.
    Check in the settings what uSB mode is set.
