It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Computer doesn't recongnize sony camera usb


To download the pictures you need the driver for the camera ...this can be downloaded from the support site if you do not have it ..but from what you said it seam that the issue may be of other cause..
The camera need to be powered and on ..in the moment you connect it to the computer ..and also you need to confirm the pc connection from the camera in the moment you connect ti .make sure you have its driver installed .
Try to connect in a different usb port ..cause even if the driver is missing the computer should react on the usb device being plugged and ask for the driver.
If no port will react ..try the camera oin another computer ..and like I said always make sure it is powered and on ... If it makes no reaction in another computer ..than something is wrong with the camera .Another method to download the pictures..is to use the card from the camera directly into a card reader and copy the pictures from it ..
here is a link for the driver if you need it ..
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DSCW370G&template_id=1&region_id=1&tab=download#/downloadTab
this is teh picture browser it uses...be sure you select the operation system you run ..and also make sure you download the full program first and the upgrade after ..cause the update download may not work without the original one ..(down on the list ) ..
Good luck !

My camera (canon powershot a580) doesn't make a connection to the pc anymore, so I cannot put my pictures on the pc.


Good day!!!!

if you can't connect to the PC using USB try test other USB

if you test other USB and still can't connect..you need to give it to the qualified technician..

but for the mean time you can use the sd card of your camera then insert it to the card reader..

after that you can copy the picture from camera to the PC.

Thank for using fixya...

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.

For this issue you just need to reinstall the software or driver for your camera. Then restart your Pc. Then you need to connect your camera again to check if the pc will recognized it.

No audio from pc connected using hdmi


Are you not getting audio to the television speakers and the onkyo reciever speakers when connected HDMI thru the reciever or just the television. If it is just thru the television then it is because the reciever is grabbing the HDMI audio signal and converting it so it does not reach the TV. If it is both then try changing the HDMI signal output from PCM to DOLBY DIGITAL on the computer. Your reciever may not be able to process the PCM signal of the computer. Does the reciever show a PCM or DOBLY DIGITAL display when HDMI is hooked up to it?
