Windows 7: No Portable Device option under Device Manger

No Portable Device option under Device Manger

My HP laptop was not detecting my canon camera; so I searched it and follow the instructions and surprised that "Portable Device" option is missing under Device Manger. I tried the View (Show hidden devices) but it didn't show up. Can any one tell me whats wrong here?

Did your Canon camera come with a DVD. Most cameras come with one & you need to run the DVD & install the necessary software. It should then show up in your Device Manager.

Thanks for replying nooruddin76, Ranger4.
Imaging device only contains built-in camera driver. My camera was in picture taking mood, I switched it to picture viewing mood and my laptop detect it automatically.
Though my problem was solved but I don't know why there is "No Portable Device option under Device Manger" and I searched it over the internet and can't find the reason. Thanks anyway.
