Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera

Cannot get pictures off my sony a300

I can take the pictures fine, but once I plug it into my computer, everything goes crazy. I read in the manual that it can only work with a 32 bit processor and I have a 64 bit so I ordered a memory card reader. Still is not working. Please help!

It's not working with the memory card reader?

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. 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: Memory stick duo not showing pictures

It may be that you actually have the pictures stored on the camera's onboard memory and you may have to plug the camera in directly to access the pictures. Or Sony may have a strange way of accessing the files on the device (they have done the same with their MP3 players), so you may be limited to using their software to get the pictures off the camera (or memory stick).

In the menu, there should be an entry for "copy" or "transfer" or something to that effect that will permit the transfer.

I have the sony a300 and have never downloaded the pictures to my computor. Can not find the book! PLEASE tell me in the short fast version , how to!!!!!! THANK YOU


You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSLRA300.pdf

Since you didn't specify the operating system on your computer, I can only give you the generic answer.

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.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 LCD screen does not power up as if there is no power going to the screen. the camera takes fine pictures. to view the pictures, you will have to plug the camera into a computer.


It is for sure that the LCD display is not working. Hence you need to probe into the camera to confirm but attempt only if equipped with the right tools and some experience , becasue as of now your camera can shoot good pictures and you must not end up tampering to damage the camera.
If not get help from a friend or the nearest sony service centre, get estimate and replace accordinly. You will be lucky if the fault is a power link failure, if the display needs replacement then the cost is the issue, try if you can get a salvaged display unit.
hope this helps. Good day

Canon PC1045/PowerShot A300 I need an Owner's Manual and a USB cable. I need an Owner's Manual and a USB Cable.


You can download a manual and order a USB cable from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8775

Before you buy another USB cable, consider this: 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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

You don't need any special software.

Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.
