Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Installing the Photo Viewer Software

I own a Mac OS X which does not have a port for the small CD which came with my DP-151 key chain. I purchased 3 of these as Christmas gifts and need to load pictures on them before they are mailed off.

Is there a web site with a free installation download?

Thank you for your help.

MAC is developing a miniCD adapter. But that doesn't really help you now. Probably your best bet is to connect it to your mac via USB since it has a port and just drag and drop onto the flash drive. Mac should read it as a file.

When I try to install the coby dp 151 it says: cant find photoviewer or program that owns it. the program will exit. ?? confused


Hello,

The error you describe, is also mentioned in the Setup Guide for the DP151.
When you connect the Key Chain to the USB port of your computer, on the Key Chain will prompt the message to select: USB charge or USB update.


For proper function of the Chain Key:

0) Before connecting the Chain Key, have the Photo Viewer software installed:
You need adminstrator rights to perform installation of programs.
Install the photo viewer from the CD or download this program
from the Coby support site:
> enter cobyusa.com in the address bar of internet explorer
> enter DP151 in the Product Search bar
now all support for the Chain Key will show
> run the DP151_PhotoViewer zip file directly or save the zip file onto your computer, unzip and run the setup.exe file later

1) Connect the Chain Key and Select USB update on the Chain Key.
Again, to be able to update, you need adminstrator rights.

2) Run the Photo Viewer on the computer.

I have a coby dp-161 and cannot get the pictures to install.


We had the same problem and you won't believe how simple the actual fix was!!! When you plug the USB plug into the keychain device or whatever device you are using (in our case it was a keychain), make absolutely certain that the plug is pushed in all the way (it is tough to push in) until it actually clicks and all you see is the black part of the USB plug. Then try your software. It should work!!!

Innovage Digital Photo Album w Keychain driver


Summary of Solutions posted here and elsewhere:

I just received a Innovage Digital Photo Album Keychain as a gift and ran into some of the issues posted here. I am going to summarize the solutions I have come across in hopes they will help others.

Installing/obtaining the software:

The keychain requires you to use custom software to upload pictures. The keychain includes a mini-cd with the software. If you have a computer with a slot loading cd (i.e. laptop, imac, mac-mini, etc) do not try to put the CD into your computer, it may become stuck! Either call the service line and order a full size cd, or try downloading the software from either:
Coby DP-151 software
Digital Foci - Pocket Album software
(While these are different digital photo products, the transfer software appears to be same as the Innovate software)

The software should be installed before you plug in the keychain into your USB port.

Software Issues:

Some users have complained that they can't see the whole transfer window. You might have your screen resolution set too low (like 680x480 or 800x600) try increasing to 1024x768 or bigger.

Finding photos: The software is quite simple, it does not integrate with your photo software (e.g. iphoto) it simple reads image files. You will need to point the software to where your photos are stored on your computer. For most people this is either "My Pictures" or simply "Pictures" folder.

Transferring photos: There have been some recommendations to transfer the photos to the keychain in small batches (like 6-10) rather than queuing up 60 images to transfer all at once. Apparently the software has crashed on some peoples machines when transferring many images.

Device Issues:


Charging: The device has an internal battery, it must be charged via your computers USB port. In must be in the charge mode, it will not charge when it is in the update mode. When you first plug the device into your USB port a menu should come up on the screen. You can use the arrow buttons to change the selection, then press the power key to select your choice. For charging you should select "USB Charge". In this mode the keychain will display images and won't let you power off. The red light will supposedly turn green once the keychain is fully charged.

Transferring images:
The keychain must be in the "USB Update" mode before your software will talk with it. Try unplugging the keychain, plug it back in, wait for the menu, use the arrow keys to select "USB update", press the power button. Now try running your transfer software

Bad USB cables: Many people have reported that the supplied USB cable doesn't work. If you are having problems with charging or transferring images, first try another USB cable from a similar type device if you have one (many cameras have the same sized mini usb connectors)

Hope this helps someone!
