Cybershot W80 not opening on iPhoto

Hi, I'm able to get the drive to mount, and iPhoto even opens when i plug in the USB, but it just churns and churns and basically the app just freezes. i'm using an older version of iPhoto (v4) so maybe that's the problem? thx!

    I have a similar problem. Except nothing freezes. It just doesn't upload... How do I fix that?

    Use the Mac Application "Image Capture" to download photos then import them into iPhoto. I created a new folder to store the photos imported from the W80.

    When camera connects to my imac, it takes FOREVER to get the folder with the JPEGS to open form the Sony memory stick icon on desktop. Once I got the folder to open and started coping to my desktop, the whole computer froze up. I tried changing the setting on the camera to Mas storage, and Auto. Will try with pict bridge, but battery died. This is way too much effort, if I had known I WOULD NEVER have bought this camera!

    I have a Sony Cybershot W80 and by some chance have managed to make it work once but can not get it to work again.  The image capture comes up with Sony DSC but never gets around actually finishing recognising the device.  It does not appear on iphoto but comes up as phone card on the usb slot.  Very frustrating.  It should not be so hard.

Pentax optio w80 driver


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.

in iphoto under preferences, theres a drop down saying- connecting camera opens. make sure iphoto is selected.
Iphoto will automatically open when you plug in your camera, and ask you if you want to import your photos.
Also, sometimes I would plug in my camera and forget to turn the power on to it, (lol), so make sure your camera is turned on...;)

NEED DOWNLOAD FOR SONY CYBER-SHOT DSC-W80, I LOST


Would you like to open your pictures from your Sony Cybershot to your computer? Your cybershot cam is usually plug and play so you dont need a software for that. All you do is to plug in your camera to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. When the computer detected the new usb device, open a Windows Explorer. Right click your windows Start button, and choose Explore. From the list of Drives from the left, you need to find the Drive letter associated with your camera. Just click on that and it will show you the files on the right. The pictures are located somewhere inside those folders. You just need to click and drag them to your computer's local drive.

Should you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!

Compatability?


I set the USB to PictBridge mode (press home button, then main settings). Now iPhoto recognizes the camera and I can import photos.
