Go to the web site of your computer. Say maybe HP and type in your product and download the driver. If it's a external driver go to their website. or just check if there are driver updates.

I have a net book so i have no where to enter the cd to be able to put pictures onto computer and was wondering if i could download it online and where to do it ?


Use blue tooth if available. If not use pen drive. If not use picasa software. Create account upload photos. And then through your netbook download them back.

I just purchased a SVP MP300 camera/camcorder/mp3 player. I loaded the Media Impressions software by Arcsoft that came with the device but when I open the software and plug the camera into the USB port,...


first take a look on the disk that came with it ..and look for the driver ...not just the program ...The driver need to be on the disk and probably install itself separately and is the software that will make it visible in my computer folder as storage device ..or in that program you mentioned..I looked for the driver on the net but I need the manufacturer name to locate it ..if it is available ..so I lean to think it came with the disk ..or in a separate one ..The idea is the driver makes the communication between pc and device ..and the program will operate the actual download or so ..You can also download them by copy paste from the folder present in My computer area after the driver installation ...If a driver is not present anywhere on the disk (s) from the box...let me know the manufacturer name and I will try to locate on e..(by the way also let me know the operation system you use..
Try anyway to change the usb port you inserted it into ..and restart the computer cause most newly cams and players do not need driver and just install themselves auto ..and are visible as a removable drive (just like a memory unit in my computer ..and you can copy files from its memory without any program ) or ...if you are using windows 7 ..look on the task bar and see if there is any icon present after inserting it ...if it is use it and download stuff using windows features..
let me know what you managed to do ..

How do I download my pictures from my Sony camera to the computer?


Here is one instructional video tutorial from Sony Support; also could try this procedure:
- Take off your memory stick from your camera and insert it into your memory stick adapter. Open your camera's battery case and gently push the memory stick until you hear a faint "click," then remove it from the camera. Place the memory stick inside the adapter that comes with your camera.
- Insert the adapter into your computer's memory card reader, if you have one. The adapter, which is larger than the memory stick itself, is approximately the same size as an ordinary SD memory card.
- Connect your Sony digital camera to your computer using its USB cable if you can't find or don't have a memory stick adapter. Insert the small end of the USB cable into the camera. Insert the wider, flatter end into one of your computer's USB ports.
- Click "Open Device to View Files" to open your memory stick or camera. Search for the DCIM folder and click on it. Navigate through any photo subdirectories you've created and highlight photos you want to transfer to your computer. Right-click anywhere in a given folder, then click "Copy." Go to the location where you want to store your images, then right-click within that folder. Click "Paste" to transfer your images.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Says error on formatting memory card.


Hi,
The camera may display a FORMAT ERROR if the inserted media is not formatted or if the media was formatted on a computer. This error may also display if the inserted media is not supported by the camera.
Try to remove and re-insert the Memory Stick media several times.
Make sure that the inserted Memory Stick media is compatible with the camera. DSCW310 Camera is compatible with the Memory Stick Pro Duo upto 32 GB.
You may also try formatting the Memory Stick media to resolve the issue. Format the Memory Stick media using the FORMAT option in the camera menu.
Formatting will erase all stored data, images, movies, etc., from the Memory Stick media. FORMAT option is available in the Memory Card Tool Menu of the Camera which is in the Settings Menu. Please back up the data by inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot.
This may also happen if the terminals on the Memory Stick media are dirty. Remove the Memory Stick media from the camera and use a soft dry cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Make sure there are no residual particles on the Memory Stick media before re-inserting it into the camera.
The data on the Memory Stick media or the Memory Stick media itself is damaged. Try using a different Memory Stick media in the camera.
This should resolve the issue. If the error continues to display, the media may need to be replaced or the camera may require service.

Is there anyway I can retrieve pictures that were accidently erased?


It may be possible to recover deleted pictures from your Sony Memory Stick by using the Memory Card File Rescueapplication. This software is available as a free download online in the Software & Drivers section.


If the Memory Stick File Rescue application is unable to recover the image files, then the Memory Stick media may need to be sent to a professional data recovery service company, like Sony Media Services or DriveSavers Data Recovery. For more information and pricing, visit the Sony Media Services Web site at http://www.sonymediaservices.com/, or the DriveSavers Data Recovery Web site at http://www.drivesavers.com.

Cannot transfer movies from camera to my computer. have new computer


Check whether the Camera has any settings that has to be selected in order to connect it to the Computer.

If the Computer is not recognizing the Camera/Camcorder, check whether the USB Driver is installed in the Computer or not. Also, the Computer will not recognize the Camera/Camcorder if the USB Driver is corrupted. In this case you may un-install and install the USB Driver is the Computer.

After the Computer recognizes as Removable device, you can double-click on it to view the video files stored in the Memory of the Camera. Then, you can copy and paste the video files to the desired location on the Hard drive of the Computer.

If un-installing and installing the USB Driver does not work then you may transfer the files using Memory Card Reader.
If the Computer has the Memory Stick slot, then you can transfer the video files without using the Card Reader.

Computer doesn't recognise memory stick


well you could check if your media drive is compatible with memory stick duo/pro duo or update the drivers for it . or try something like going into its properties and click the tab called recording and select enable cd recording on this drive (if that renders your dvd drive inaccessible you can change the other drive(inaccessible drive) to that setting).
