You shouldntd need a specific driver just to get photos off your camera.
What happens when you plug the camera into your computer with a USB cable?
If you view the File Explorer, you should see it listed as a removable hard drive.
follow up... try going with a different set of batteries all together. i swapped the sony ni-mh batteries with a generic brand of nickel-metal hydride batteries and 'camera' & 'video' mode are working once again.
Hey kimmc279, According to the manufacturer the file error message should mean the camera experienced an error while trying to read the file. One thing you could try is formatting your memory stick in camera, and of course upload any images you have on it to your computer first. If that didn't work I would try initializing the camera back to factory settings, which can be done in the setup menu. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
