You do not need any Driver or Software to transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer.
1. Set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the Camera menu to Mass Storage or Normal .
2. Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable or any USB cable.
3. The Computer will recognize the Camera (make sure that the recording media containing the pictures (Memory Stick) is inserted in the Camera).
4. Click the Start button and then click the "My Computer" icon (for XP Operating System and for Vista or Windows 7 it will be "Computer" icon).

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

I have experience this unfortunately the drive mechanics
motor and more so the gears are plastic when mine dropped it broke a tooth on the gear off the drive motor that drives the worm gear that extends and retracts the lens assembly. this sad to say but the units are not repairable and the assembly has to be replaced owen to the fact that it really is cheaper to replace the assembly than try and repair it.
