Most brands of cameras deliver a CD with the camera, containing software, needed to backup, transfer and work with the pictures shot, on a computer.Most of the time there is software is for both, Windows and MAC.
Before you connect the camera with any computer, you should install the software. The disk also has the drivers for the old operating systems.
If you lost the CD, or just don't know where it is right now, you can go to the site of your camera brand and try to download the software you need. For that look under support.
If your camera is old, and the brand does not exist anymore, try a freeware picture transfer / editing software pack. Like Gimp or Adobe Photoshop elements.

Every time I download a song from my pc to the mp3 player it say it loads and shows up but when I hit play the screen says P.C. File and it won't play. Could u tell me what is wrong

The song is probably just in the wrong format, check and make sure it is in .mp3 format and if not try to sink it to the mp3 player with windows media player this should correct the problem, or download a music converter

ı can,t download my pıctures -

This camers uses 16MB of biult in memory and accepts SD or SDHC cards that may hold many GB. So your pics may be in 2 places.

First try resetting the camera to factory defaults with the OSD menu. Remove the SD card during this procedure. If this works, Fine.

If not: Since most of your pictures are probably on an SD card, the simple solution is to get a memory card adapter that handles your card, thereby avoiding connecting the camera to the PC. The SD card should show up in My Computer as a lettered HD. If it doesn't then the plot gets thicker.

If your pics are still munged, they may yet be retrievable with PC file recovery software like File Scavenger.

Usually if it's a formating issue is because it is a wrong disc. Make sure what format the burner can use meaning if it's a - or +. Also, the sony brand disc don't work with anything but sony stuff so make sure it's not a sony disc.
