Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

This is the problem of the ZOOM in your camera. Its alignment is disturb by you. Your camera must have fallen down or some one has pressed the ZOOM from front when it was open. The solution is to get repaired at your nearest SONY service center.

Yes, the first thing you should do - stop taking more pictures with the Sony Cybershot camera memory card if you want to increase chances of data recovery. Then you need to rely on a thrid-party data recovery tool to help.

This site Digital Camera Recovery also lists a few reliable & tested programs for both PC & Mac users. Good luck & Merry Christmas!

Sony camera says Switch on [MENU] when i upload pic from USB cord


1) Try uninstalling then re-installing your Sony software.

2) When you connect to the PC and switch on, Click on Start - "My Computer". Your hard drives and disk drives should appear in the window.

Have a good look, is there a new drive, it may be called Sony, or USB mass storage device it may just be called drive E or F.

If so double click on that drive, if there's a folder there, double click on there, with luck you should see your pictures, that new drive is really your camera.

You should be able to move pictures by copy and pasting. Once copied you can deleted them from your camera.

3) You can buy a device called a "Memory card reader" Make sure its good for sony memory sticks.
You take you card from you camera and put it in the card reader. Then, once plugged into a USB port its just like another HDD as described in 2.

4) I should have said this first, try another USB port if you can, it my just be dust in the port making life hard............


Good Luck.

Recently purchased Sony Cybershot DSCW180. Took 3


Yes, you need to have memory stick because camera has limited internal memory that can store few pictures only.
Put new memory card, format it through camera Menu and copy internal memory pictures to memory stick, take our memory card from camera and delete internal memory pictures either one by one or format internal memory through camera Menu.
Thanks.
