Oh, reinstalling the software you got, or try another software like Windows Photo Gallery, or another video editing software and 'Import from Camera'.
Or, you can buy a USB adapter and directly remove the memory stick and manually drag the pics and vids out of the camera. The adapter will go into a USB port and the card will go into the other end. 

I use my laptop's inbuilt card reader, which reads the long Memory Stick. My camera does the same. So I don't need an adapter. What my camera has, I have. When I bought a 4 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, I had to buy a long adapter which goes into the camera and also in my card reader (not USB).
Also, you can buy a card reader if you don't have one inbuilt, and it will have many slots so that you can cram a number of cards into it without any kind of adapter.
Hope this helps. Please rate me.

How long have you owned this camera? What is the exact model of the camera? What happens when you click on manage files? Once I have more information I can assist you further. Please don't request more assistance until I can properly assist you.
Thank you,

Have downloaded cd file but unable to download pictures via usb to pc


What make and model camera? If it uses a memory card of some type, consider 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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

''Unable to display this image'' error on Pentax Kx


Sounds like some of the spaces on the card are becoming corrupted. How do you download? With the camera and USB cord, card inserted into reader on computer, or card inserted in a separate card reader? When you are finished downloading, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or do you just yank out the cord or card thereby causing the corruption?

Unable to display imges when connected to computer.


Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a 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:

Try disconnecting the camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work. Hope this helps. Bud

Handycam utility will not work


Took me a lot of cursing, and it's very simple. On your camera's screen there are 2 options saying "USB Connect". Only when you look really closely do you see that the 1st one is for the hard disk and the second is for a memory card. I expect you are using the wrong one..I was!

Sony camcorder - USB mode


the usb mode is usually reserved for removing pictures from memory card through camcorder to computer-using camcorder as web cam-new models can stream lower quality video from camcorder to computer-for a dvd cam use a converter box ie pinnacle movie box to convert analog A/V connections to usb and that will stream the correct way-
