Unable to transfer pics to my computer

I can see the pictures I have shot on the camera, but it does not show up on the computer while I am trying to transfer.
I have tried on different computers, but it still is not working.

It used to work fine all these days - I have had the camera for more then a year now.

Pl resolve this.

(1) Full memory card (of Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W300, 13.6MP)plugged through card reader into Laptop, does not open as removable drive. (2) The same card when put back into the Camera, shows all...

If I were in your situation, I would stop trying to download to my computer. I would take the card to my nearest Walmart store and use one of their picture kiosk machines to either print all of the pics or even make a CD copy of them.

Unable to get pictures off of camera - shows 164 pictures - then stops at #5 when trying to download and says error reading card. Can look at pictures on camera but they will not transfer

The quickest solution I can think of is to try getting a USB card reader that matches the format of your card (SD, MMC, XD, etc.), take it out of the camera and attach it to reader and your computer, If you are successful in salvaging the pictures, I would recommend using your computer to format the card using the FAT file system (not NTFS). Good luck in saving your pics :)

Sony cyber shot 7.2 Carl Zeiss transfer pics on memory card

Take the memory stick out of the camera then connect to the computer. You can then transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer.
Alternatively, use the camera's copy command to copy the pictures from the internal memory to the memory stick.

Transferring photo from computer to memory stick

Many cameras will not let you write to the card. Try using a card reader, which will make the memory card appear to the computer as a separate hard drive.
