Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
I cannot understand how to transfer pictures from my lap top back onto my memory card. There is nothing in the User Gude though it is clearly described as a reader/writer. Can anyone please enlighten me?
Unfortunately, it depends on the camera and the drivers loaded for it. With some cameras, like the Fuji Finepix, the camera is automatically recognized as a "scanner/camera" USB device and Windows either forces you to use the Camera & Scanner Wizard or Fuji's proprietary software. With others, like Canon, Nikon or Sony, you get the Wizard, but also get an option to view the files directly on the camera's memory card, like it's an external drive (Windows may even assign it a drive letter, like F:\). You can keep fighting with this but my recommendation is, don't bother! There are so many inexpensive card readers out there (some are even less than $10 with a rebate that, essentially, makes them FREE) that it's much better to get one of those to manage your CF card(s).
If you still are determined to access the camera directly go into the Windows Control Panel (Start > Control Panel) and make sure you're in "classic view" so that you see icons listed. Double-click on "Scanners & Cameras" and check that list. If your camera is listed, delete it. Plug the camera back into your computer and when Windows redetects it, choose to manage the files manually (open them as a folder). The catch is, when you have pictures you want to get FROM the camera, you won't get the Wizard any more, so there's a trade-off there. Be aware.
Let us know how it turns out.
