The USB connection is not initiating

Screen reads USB mode connecting and lower selection says switch on Menu. I've tried all settings and have generated no results. I am unable to download my photos on either the PC or the laptop. So the problem lies in the camera.

    Sorry, I didn't ask "how to do it" that would be a waste of time, that info is in the manual.

    There is a problem with the camera, as stated.

There is 2 ways to transfer/download pics from cam to pc (i) the USB connection and (ii) by memory card all you ned is to get the memory stick of your cam and attach it to a card reader and your card reader to a USB port of your PC that way you can download pics from your cam to PC. if still cant understand check this video...

My sansa m230 driver mp3 player is not detected as removalble disk i mean as a flash drive on my laptop how can i fix this issue


Hello,

When you're able to change USB mode in the display:
- From the Main Menu, select Settings > USB
- Select in "Auto Detect", "MTP" or "MSC": choose MSC for viewing the player as a removable disk.
When you cannot select MSC mode in the player's menu, force MSC mode with the player switches/buttons:
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Facing the hold switch: slide it to the right so an orange color would show, putting the device on Hold.
3. Connect the device to the PC with the provided USB cable.

note
In MSC mode: Before disconnecting the USB cable always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the lower screen of your computer on the right. Left click the icon to see all removable disks and left click on the removable disk drive letter of the player to disconnect: after the message you can take out the USB cable.
