This problem mainly occurs because Sony does not support connection though Hubs or for that matter Front Panel USB ports. Try connecting the camera throught the back panel ports (There are usually four to six of these depending on your motherboard.) .

If it still remains unresolved:
1. Update windows XP to atleast service pack two (If you havent already). Uninstall Picture Motion Browser.

2. Uninstall the camera from the device manager.
This is how to do it. Connect the camera, wait for it to show as an unrecognised device. Hit "Windows + Pause/Break" to bring up system properties. (Windows is the key next to alt, that brings up the start menu.). Navigate to the hardware tab and choose device manager. Expand the last tree from the list (One for USB devices) and delete the entry "Unrecognised Device" (Select it and hit delete). Shut the device manager. Disconect the camera.

3. Now, connect the camera the one of the USB ports on the back of your PC and power it on. It should show up as a PTP/Mass storage (depending on your camera settings) device.

4. If it still doesn't work, disconnect all other USB devices from your PC and then repeat from step 2.

5. You can reinstall Picture motion Browser if you like or use Xp's photo transfer utility.

Hope this solves your problem.

Cheers,
Shaunak

When i join the camera with pc a small message appear that usb device not recognized i have transfer the images from it what to do


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 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.

No detect


Please set the "USB Connect" option in the Menu of the Camera to "Mass Storage" option.
Steps to go to USB Connect option:
Press Menu button and select Setup option.
Then select the Setup 2 and then the USB Connect option

Then connect the Camera to the Computer and the Camera will be recognized as a removable device in "My Computer".

The Computer recognizes the Camera as a Removable device just like a Pen Drive. You can access the files in the Camera in the same way you access the files in the Pen Drive.

Then copy the files and paste them to a desired location on the Hard drive of the Computer.

If this does not work, then you may select the "PTP" option and Pictbridge option before connecting the Camera to the Computer to check if they work.

Please use the supplied USB cable to connect the Camera to the Computer.

USB Device Not Recognized


try downloading the drivers from sony first http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=C116935&fes=true&mdl=DSCW5 that is if you have already downloaded the proper usb drivers for your system in which case other usb device are still working also it is possible that the usb port itself has gone bad or is in conflict with another driver assuming your using windows to check this you can start by telling me which version of windows you are using but more than likely the proper camera drivers will solve the issue

Recognition problem with Sony DSC-P50


Most digital cameras software require that the camera be in playback mode (mode for viewing photos) before the computer will recognize the camera. If that is not the solution, be sure to go back and read your Sony User's Manual and see if you are overlooking something. If you are unable to get the computer to recognize the camera you can always buy a card reader (about $20).
