Since you mentioned work computers, are you on a network with mapped drives? WinXP will sometimes try to map external devices to a drive letter that is already mapped to a network share, resulting in the camera not showing up in explorer. Your coworker's computer may have different drive mappings allowing the camera to show up. Look in computer management/disk management the next time you have the camera plugged in and see if it shows up as a physical drive. If so, then simply change it to a free drive letter. If not, then you may have some USB compatibility issue to work out.
