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.

You'll need a card reader to transfer the data to your PC.
These days most laptops and printer has built in card reader. But since Sony camera's use memory stick, some of them don't support memory stick. So,

  • First check whether or not your printer or laptop has memory stick support, if has then use it to transfer you images. Otherwise you've to purchase a memory card reader with memory stick read support[should be available on any nearby electronic shop].
  • Then remove your memory stick from your camera and connect it with your laptop.
  • Open the memory card and copy your images.

An easy way to find out is to try another cable. Better yet, consider NOT using the USB connection at all.

You have to have a cable to go from your Camera to your Computer. The computer side will undoubtedly be USB. The camera side will probably mini USB - but could be different based on the camera.

You might need some drivers on your Computer so that it recognizes the external device (camera). If your lucky - it will "find it" on it's own.

The cable you need probably did not come with your camera - as manufacturers have become increasingly cheap. See picture of Mini-USB Cable.

Another option is popping out the memory card and either inserting it into the memory card port on your computer (alot of laptops have them) or getting an adapter (Memory Card to USB) - see picture. Size of adapter will depend on the memory card.

Consider getting a card reader instead. You should be able to pick one up at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store for less money than a USB cable.
