Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Computer does not recognise the driver for the camera.

The camera was previously installed on my pc. However when I returned from holiday to download the photos, my pc would not recognise the device. A message appears that there are no drivers for the camera. I have tried installing the camera again but an error occurs each time I try. I have successfully transferred the photos to another pc so I know that there is no fault with the camera.

I have some pictures in a Nikon coolpix 7600 digital camera and want to download or empty out the camera. Need an empty camera for my holiday tomorrow. How can I do that

Quickest and simplest way is to get a new memory card. If you are off on holiday tomorrow you won't have time to mess with drivers and cables to download to computer. Take out the old memory card and deal with it on your return. A new, empty one can be obtained at any camera shop, even while you are on holiday.

Cannot download photos

What is ptp utility new to me. I suggest the first thing to do is if you have the software from the disk loaded - you un install it. Restart the computer - plug camera in and set it to upload mode. Windows scanner/Camera Wizard will take you along from there. If it does not change the USB port. Come back with the next move

I lost my manual and i have no idea how to even download the pictures on my computer

Here is the link for the driver if you need it; sorry no luck with a manual, but if you download and install the driver, when you plug the camera into your pc it should recognise the camera and you should be able to download your pictures using the driver software Hope this helps :)
