Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera connected via USB can not be seen as a drive on PC

When I connect my digital camera (Sony DSC-S730) the drive on the PC comes but shows nothing. No files can be seen even those that are preloaded. When I take the Camera to my work computer I can see the contents of the camera.

The Picture Motion Browser facility does not see the Camera drive if I attempt to download from the camera.

Please help.

Try 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 such as Picasa.
