Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS 10MP Digital Camera - Communication Error

Just recently the camera no longer communicates with either of my computers (one is 32-bit, the other is 64-bit).  When I connect the camera, it displays a message that says COMMUNICATION ERROR.  I have tried using a different USB cable but that does not help.  This problem just recently started to occur.  Previously the camera would upload photos to either computer just fine.

I would appreciate suggestions or solutions.
