Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Upload not working

My Mac Powerbook is not recognizing my camera when I plug in the USB cable to upload my photos. I normal just plug in the cable to my camera then the laptop and iphoto will automatically recognize the camera and connect. I have tried to connect the cable to the laptop first then the camera, trashed the iphoto preferences, and rebooted my laptop while the camera is plugged in... but no success. The camera itself recognizes that the cable is connected because when I plug the cable into the laptop (when it is attached to the camera) the message "USB mode" appears on teh camera's screen. Does anyone have a solution for this problem? Cheers Gary

Try resetting preferences on the laptop (take a hard copy of any settings first), close it down, turn it over and remove the battery, then press the start button for 10 seconds, refit battery and re boot, all your settings will be reset and now try

I have a polaroid t730 camera and have been able to upload photos to my hp laptop in the past. however, upon trying to upload photos now, my computer does no seem to recognize that the camera is attatched...


now my computer does no seem to recognize that the camera is attatched at all,

  • Do you mean to say it recognized the camera at one time in the past?
  • What happens when you attach the USB cable?
  • What operating system are you running on your computer?
  • Did you try to re-install the drivers?

Camera will not connect with Mac


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your Mac.

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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Trying to upload photos from my Canon Power shot SD780 is to my Mac but when I plug in the cable the camera says "incompatible jpeg". And no icon to upload the photos shows up on my Mac.


if using iPhoto, check for software updates. When the newer cameras come out, sometimes it results in incompatibility with the software and they're always working to update this.
Also check your card in your camera. Some of the newer high speed cards struggle with uploads. You can purchase aftermarket high speed card readers and this will allow firewire rapid uploads direct to iPhoto and Aperture.
