Re: windows xp-cybershot driver

Ok what ya need to do is look on ya CD that came with ya camera.. on this CD ya should find any and all files necessary to get ya camera to work. One has to install the "Drivers" for the Camera these are usually on the CD supplied with ya camera. If ya haven't got one maybe try Ebay? Also you need to have a look in windows\system32\ for that sonyvu1.sys file.. if it's not there have a look on the CD, OR Driver files.. for that file and copy paste it to windows\system32 that MAY work? BUT I wonder if the Drivers you are using are correct I found some here.. and a troubleshooting manual here... You have to install the drivers and then insert ya camera it should be detected and available as a normal "Drive" & OR thru the software that came with the camera. I hope this all is of some help...

The disc supplied with sony cybershot P200 application can't instal on windows 7. Is there any solution for this? Regards/Ash

The drivers needed to connect your Sony camera to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system, so you don't have to install anything. If there is a software on that disk to enable you to edit, sort pictures, etc, you could try to Troubleshoot compatibility, by right-clicking on setup.exe located on your cd.

Downloaded driver for cybershot dsc s500, then try to interface camera with computer, pc doesnt see the camera in control panel or my computer removable hard drive.

Sony has the roughest firmware known to man for digital cameras. If running Windows XP or Vista you can simply connect the camera to the USB port and let the computer do the rest. Picbrige works the best for it downloads the quickest. Picbrige will be on your cameras list of choices to use for downloading
