Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505 Digital Camera

1 Answer

DSC-F505 does not show as a disk drive

Hi all,

I recently upgraded this computer from 2000 to XP. Computer is a Dell GX270, P4, 3.2 GHz, 3.0 GB of RAM. Camera used to be recognised previously on Win 2000. Device Manager recognises it as a Disk Drive- Sony DSC-F505 USB Device. But it still does not show up as a disk drive with a drive letter assigned to it. What can I do?

It sounds like the drive letter that the camera wants is already assigned to another device. The link below will help you change the drive letter.

How to get more disk space on an old dell computer XP


Support for XP has ended, the operating system is 14 years old, It's time for an upgrade.
There is probably a lot of things wrong with the laptop and not worth messing around with.
I would suggest backing up any files you wish to keep and get yourself a newer laptop!!

I have put here a pic or two for you to see what defective caps look like. Call Dell and ask them. I some case a while back they were doing a free motherboard replacement. The problem causes a whole raft of errors to occur from blue screens to "thermal event error" and the only thing that fixes it is to have the motherboard replaced. Hope this helps you

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand


You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.

If your computer has these hardware specs:

Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, or Windows Vista; Internet Explorer version 6 or higher; Windows Media Player version 11 or higher; an active broadband connection to the Internet; 1.0 GHz processor; 512 MB RAM; 3 GB free hard disk drive space.

you should be ok with the movies download and watch.

Other wise you will probablt need new hardware which is really tough to upgrade on a laptop.
