Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

SOURCE: Transferring pics

I think there is a copy to card option in your camera.

It would enable you to transfer pictures from internal memory to your SD card.

You may check the website of your Camera Manufacturer and download the English manual online.

Usually when you connect your camera to your PC the camera’s icon appears under my computer. Are you saying that you cannot see your camera icon under My Computer? If that is the case you should try with another USB cable. Once you see the camera’s icon you simply open it (right click and select open or simply double click on it). Then the contents of the memory card in your camera will be displayed. You may then highlight them and copy and paste them anywhere in your hard drive.

Need a free download for my sony cyber shot dsc-w55 to download pictures on my computer


You do not need any Driver or Software to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

1. Set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to Mass Storage or Normal .

2. Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable or any USB cable.

3. The Computer will recognize the Camera (make sure that the recording media containing the pictures (Memory Stick) is inserted in the Camera).

4. Click the Start button and then click the "My Computer" icon (for XP Operating System and for Vista or Windows 7 it will be "Computer" icon).

5. In the "My Computer" or "Computer" window, click the icon that represents the Camera.

6. Click the "DCIM" folder and drag it to the desktop screen of the Computer to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.

However, you may download the supplied Picture Motion Browser software for the Camera from this Link.

Can't download pics


Dear daj43

I think u have not installed the software for it on ur pc, incase u have installed the software and still it persists, try to notice if the software is loaded and running when connecting the camera. I would always suggest u to remove the memory card and use it in a memory card reader/writer to transfer the images to pc.
