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.

The card error may be caused by several problems:
1. some minor electrical problem - turn the camera off, remove battery, wait several minutes, put back battery and turn camera on, see if it works. Proceed to next step to clean card contacts just in case.

2. Card not contacting with camera slot very well - remove card, put it on table with gold contacts facing up, use a cotton tipped stick with some ethyl alcohol (not alcohol drinks!) or isopropyl alcohol (many cleaning solutions like magnetic head cleaners) to thoroughly clean each contact. Avoid spilling and leaving drops on the card. Dry the card well before inserting it again. Never use water or other cleaning solutions or you'll ruin your card.

3. Card became defective: try card on another camera and/or card reader (many laptops have a SD card reader built in). If not working, discard card and sorry for your loss. If card works somehow, download everything useful and try to format it to see if it's working OK. Try to fill it up with some files and copy them back too some temp folder just to see if it's writeable and readable.

!!! In case the card seems to work, but your pictures are not there (card is empty or contains garbage) you can try to use TestDisk (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk) - it's the best picture undelete program and it's free. Of course you should try to recover your data BEFORE testing the card with formatting, writing etc.

!!! Always format your card in the camera after tinkering with it on a computer! Camera format is not the same as format from the PC.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: how to get pictures off sony cyber shot onto computer using usb

When using Windows Operating System on the Computer, follow the steps given below:

Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable. The Computer will recognize the Camera as a removable drive and list in the Windows Explorer. Press the Windows logo on the keyboard along with the "E" key to open the windows explorer. If the Sony Camera is listed in the explorer as a removable drive then double click on it to open and navigate through the files and folders. Open the "DCIM" for images and "MP_Root" for videos. Once the images and videos are visible, right click on the desired file then select copy. Next, paste the selected file on the hard drive of the Computer.

If you want to select all the files at once then press "CTRL+A", to copy, "CTRL+C" and to paste, "CRTL+V".

You should use a card reader to download your pics instead of the camera.

I'd like to transfer pictures from my Power Shot A630 to my computer. How can I do that (without having the softward disk that came with my camera)


Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Out of focus pictures


Try allowing the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.  Wait for a beep then press the rest of the way to take the picture.  This should result in much sharper images.  If this helps please rate my solution.
