The disk protect switch inside the floppy drive is stuck or bad.

I have heard that 300 image dots per inch guarantees photo quality but in reality most people are happy with half that. So, a 150 image dots per printed inch would give you a print size of 4"x3".

Don't feel bad, the same thing happened to me on my Mavica FD91. The floppy drive had finally died! I called SONY, and they told me it would be over $180 to repair it, and couldn't give me a definite turn around time. I did some searching, and was referred to Tim Driver. I shipped him the camera. He received it Monday morning, and had it back out to me on Tuesday. Everything is great. He only charged me $150! Tim is an honest guy, and he knows what he's doing. My Wife and I were a little worried about sending our only camera and $150 to an individual rather than a company. But everything was great, he kept in contact with us and let us know everything as it went along. Let me know if you need his number/e-mail.

I do not know of the picture perfect mode. In neg art mode the image will appear as a negative on the screen. If you open it to an image editing application with an invert image command in it, you will actually see what you would have seen had it been shot in normal mode. You can print it either way. If it looks like a neg on your screen then it will look like that on your print.

It's in the manual for sure. There are a couple of preset WB settings in the camera. You can access these by pressing the WB button on the lens, it will change the WB setting from one to another for every press. You can also do custom WB with one push botton.

You can download the latest Sony driver here. Since the camera is over a decade old it's unlikely Sony or anybody else will be writing new drivers for it.

Did you acknowledge which language your camera is to use?, Usually you need to OK the choice for all the settings options.

If the camera has sensor cleaning ability it should have a built in facility to do this. Otherwise do not attempt it yourself, check the camera manual or the manufacturers website for more information.

Taking photos in low light is always in risk of getting what could be described as grey spots. The technical term is Artefacts. This is where the sensor has insufficient light to generate a clear image from the available light and the camera software guesses what colours should be there, often they are grey or black.

You need two things. A USB lead to connect to your camera and software installed on your computer to recognise your camera is connected to it via the USB lead. The software and USB lead should have come with the camera. The software will be on a CD or DVD. If it did not then you need to download the software from the Sony website and then install it on your computer. Depending on your computer, ensure you download the correct type. It will either be for a MAC IOS or Windows PC.

Not all cameras display the date on the photo. Most just store the date and time with all the other photo details in the EXIF file.

There are software available for image recovery from SD and SDHC cards. One good one was produced for free by San Disk. It was called Rescue Pro. Others are available too, here is an example, there are others.
