This means Cybershot is OK. Some thing to be checked in computer.
Try it in another USB port of computer. Check USB drivers of PC and better to update it by going to support page of your computer brand.

Hi,
Try camera in another USB port of laptop and also check it with another USB cable, if still problem not solved then plug camera in any other computer to make sure that it is problem of camera.
If camera still wont work in other computer then its USB port got defective, please use memory card reader to transfer pictures in computer, take out memory card from camera, put it in memory card reader and plug it in USB port of computer.
Thanks.

Sony camera says Switch on [MENU] when i upload pic from USB cord


1) Try uninstalling then re-installing your Sony software.

2) When you connect to the PC and switch on, Click on Start - "My Computer". Your hard drives and disk drives should appear in the window.

Have a good look, is there a new drive, it may be called Sony, or USB mass storage device it may just be called drive E or F.

If so double click on that drive, if there's a folder there, double click on there, with luck you should see your pictures, that new drive is really your camera.

You should be able to move pictures by copy and pasting. Once copied you can deleted them from your camera.

3) You can buy a device called a "Memory card reader" Make sure its good for sony memory sticks.
You take you card from you camera and put it in the card reader. Then, once plugged into a USB port its just like another HDD as described in 2.

4) I should have said this first, try another USB port if you can, it my just be dust in the port making life hard............


Good Luck.

My computer do recongize my mp3 player


Try connecting the device to a different USB port, preferably at the back of the computer, if it is a desktop. Otherwise, try updating the USB drivers, if you know how to go about doing that. Restarting the computer with the device plugged in also MIGHT fix the problem. Good luck ;)

Computer does not acknowledge the camera when connected via usb


in that case try to use other usb cable, the n plug it directly to the usb port of your motherboard at the back of your cpu casing, try to use all the port, if they did not work, now you can use now a card reader, put your memory card to the card reader then plug it on the mothernoard usb port

My camera stopped uploading photos


If the camera still works OK otherwise -- you caN BYPASS THE PROBLEM with coimputer recognition simply by removing the SD card, and reading it directly. Most notebooks have a slot for plugging in an SD card. Otherwise -- there are some very cheap SD card readers (<$5.00) -- insert your card, plug into USB Port, then (on Windows) select "Open Windows Explorer" select and copy your digital images to your PC.

Usb ports not recongized


Hello,

Do use in the front ports, sometime this port is unplug to the motherboard so it need to connect before you can use that port. In the back port you can always use that ports in there it is safe to connect any plug and play device such as flash disk or usb port printer. if this both not recognize your any device you inserted then probably your device is dead. try insert your device to other pc to see if still working if not then maybe the driver of your pc are not installed. try reinstall all the driver of your system.

may this help.
