Windows 7: USB is working only under power administrator

USB is working only under power administrator

I've tied to connect my HD camcoder to my pc and my pc doesn't recognize it. (it did before , i don't know what changed).

I enabled the power administrator ( i hope that's the right term) and the cam coder was recognized instantly.

what exactly the required permission that i should give my regular user in order for the USB to work? ( i would like to disable the administrator for security issues...)

Best regards.
