Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
I have had my Coolpix P1 since Dec. 1, 2006. I have been transfering pictures by connecting the camera to the computer with a USB cable. The PictureProject software automatically recognized the connection and would begin an instant transfer. As of two days ago, there is no longer an instant program that starts the transfer. When I click open the program and manually try to start the transfer, the message reads that there is no connection. Also, I just purchased a memory card (I've never used one before) and the camera says, "Warning: this card cannot be read". I think I have formatted the card according to the CoolPix manual. I live in Paris and my mother in law is coming for her first visit on Tuesday. I really need my camera to record her visit with the grandchildren. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Hi. I have this problem with a finepix F30. Its worked fine for over a year but now my computer can't see it (even though i get the connection sound when i connect). I've uninstalled all finepix software but it hasn't helped. can anyone suggest anything else please? Thanks I have a fuji s5800 camera. It has worked fine connecting to my computer, but then it just stopped. It says now that camera is busy try again later and also says cannot connect. I've uninstalled all finepix and usb drivers and it still cannot connect to the camera. I've connected this camera to other computers and it works fine. anyone with any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks, Ian
If you use windowsXP, you do not need software to transfer your images from Coolpix, it is plug and play. Go to "My computer", can you see your "removable storage" (=your card) there?
Can you explore it?
I use to help my friends transfering their images. since there are many types & brands of camera, I do the practical way. I bought a USB card reader. and just insert the card there, I get the pictures without any other software.

Hey there pills 67, it appears the only thing that has changed is your memory card. The possibilities which follow are that the card is not formatted properly, and therefore not recognised as a valid drive, or it is not compatible with your camera. Many digital cameras cannot format larger size cards well and work better with 512 mb than 1.0 Gb. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

The thing to do here [and in general with every other camera as far as I am concerned] is to remove the supplied software. Put the disc back in the box and leave it there. Simply plug the camera in switch it on set it the the upload mode And Windows - bless it - will do the rest. Camera/Scanner wizard will come up and ask you what to do Just like that. Let Windows do the work.
