Every time i plug in my sony camera to the usb port to upload my pictures, my camera will say " usb mode. connecting to mass storage" then that will go away after a few seconds and then it...


Hi,

The "USB mode" and "Connecting to Mass Storage" message will get displayed when the Camera is connected to the Computer and is recognized by the Computer as a Mass Storage device. This is not an error message and is a normal operation.
You can change the Mass Storage settings in the Camera (depends on the model) The USB Select or USB Connect option in the Camera can be changed to PTP, Mass Storage or PictBridge mode. Set the option in the Camera to PTP and connect it to the Computer and check if the Computer is recognizing the connection. Once the computer is recognized, it appear as a removable Drive.
You can transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer from the Removable Drive by copying and pasting.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I need to down load pic of my camra


Was there are cable came w. camera? Usually a mini usb cable... don't have to be the original cable as long as they are the same type of connectors. Connect the camera to pc w. cable and power up the camera.. that should start up Microsoft picture import or external storage. If it opens MS picture import follow the direction on the pop up window. If exteranl storage, open folder to view files, then select and copy paste to your pc. If all your pictures are saved on memory card, you could just pop the memory card out of camera and insert to mem. card reader in your pc or laptop and copy and paste or move them. this won't do anything or pictures save on cameras built in memory.

I have a nokia n95 china clone on the board D800 v0.2 printed.when i conect with usb cable computer says device not recognize.what is this.help me plese.thanks


It means that the phone should be recognize as mass storage device, if it doesn't recognize it, you can try by restarting the PC with the phone connects to the computer, when the computer boots, it should be recognize as Mass Storage Device. You need no driver.

Hello, I just received my mini KA08 yesterday, I can not get either battery to charge. the wall plug that comes with it only stays red. the computer usb will not even recognize the phone...


Red means that is charging, green means that is fully charge. When you connect the phone to the computer and it doesn't recognize the device as Mass Storage Device, then just restart the computer, it should come up with two device recognized, one for the memory card and the other one for the phone. Some phones require that you choose which function to use while you connect to the computer, just tap Mass Storage.

I have an 120gb exteranl smartdisk firelite that will not mount. I have tried diffrent cables and have repaired my permissions on disk utility (i own a power book mac). Any ideas?


The operating system should automatically recognize the drive.
Take your drive to Radio Shack, along with the cables you have tried.
It is possible that you are using the wrong cable.
Another thing you could try is plug it into another computer. If it works on someone else's computer and not yours, you'll know that you have a problem with your operating system.

Computer not recognizing SD card as external storage/Creative Zen


Try going to the memory card option on the main menu, then go to 'Removable Storage', then the Zen should either tell you to connect a USB cord or insert a memory card. Try it, if not I dont know.
