Re: i dnt no how to set up my camera
Evaluate the speed of your current computer and modem -
sending video images takes a lot of bandwidth and processing power. Get a
server computer and a digital modem if you plan to stream live video.
Get a videoconferencing camera, digital still camera or
digital camcorder to use as your Web cam. (See the Related eHow "How to
Choose a Web Camera.")

You don't need the CD
Easiest way to transfer photos is:
Buy a card reader and take card out of camera, put it in card reader and copy photos to a folder on your PC
Connect camera to computer with usb lead supplied and follow on screen instructions
1. Check the CD drive and remove any CD inside.
2. Remove any USB drive from the USB port.
Your laptop could be configure to start up from CD, USB, or Floppy Drive before the hard disk.
To begin with you need to turn the printer on by the electric outlet, but not the usb lead to the computer, when you turn the printer on for the first time it will print an alignment page, put this face down on the scanner bed, and then load the software, the software will tell you when to connect the usb lead. Do not connect the USB lead until instructed to do so. You will then be guided on what to do next on the screen and which parts of the software you want to run. I suggest doing a complete install as this will come with HP solutions enabling you to get help if you run into problems. If you have the software loaded on the computer but it failed to connect the printer then maybe windows tried to pick it up. Do not connect the usb lead and windows will not pick it up. Uninstall the software and try again as instructed above. When the software starts to load and it instructs you to connect the usb lead, windows may tell you that it has found new hardware, ignore the pop up as the drivers will be loaded from the cd.
Most software programs for cameras, require you to load the software or part of the software first and follow the on screen instructions for when to add you camera lead to the computer. Otherwise windows may pick the camera up as new hardware and if it does not have the correct driver for it in its database it will not install correctly.
Uninstall the software program again, going to Control panel>add/remove programs and remove it from your system.
Insert the disk again - not the camera lead, and follow the instructions on the screen. It may ask you if you are connecting with a usb lead then give you further instructions. If you have more than one usb port available, when asked to insert the lead insert it into a different usb port to the one you have used previously, just in case windows has left behind some registry files that will conflict the installation.
Also check that the software you are loading onto your computer is compatible with your version of windows. (It should say one the disk).
I use a SD card in my camera and then insert the card into the card reader on my PC..saves all the messing around with software etc..., if you do not have a card reader on your pc, you can purchase a portable one that plugs into your usb port they are relativley cheap.
Firstly ensure you are connecting it into the same USB port as last time, as it will look for drivers if in a different port.
Also worth checking to see if another USB device is detected in the same USB port(eg usb pen,dongle, game controller etc),if so the port is ok.
If still nothing remove camera and lead.
If you still have the software and driver cd that you got with the camera, dig it out.
If you have the installation cd, look in Start>Control Panel>Add & Remove Programmes and look for the Sony driver or software in the list.
Click on the line and then on right hand side click remove.
Insert the cd and re-install drivers or let it autorun, and only connect your camera when instructed to do so; or, after the installation has finished.
Hope this works, as the connection between camera and pc is either a lead fault or camera input fault if none of above works.
