I receive a "Check connections!" error message when I try transferring images from my digital camera to my laptop. The USB cradle used to work for me, but just recently it stopped. At first I thought it was a problem with the memory card, but then I bought a new one and the same error message arises. Please help!
Turn the camera on. On the camera, press the 'MENU' button and go to the third page of the 'Set Up' tab. For the 'USB' field, select the 'Mass Storage (USB DIRECT-PRINT)' option, instead of the 'PTP(PictBridge) option. This worked for me when I was getting the "Check connections" error message, about a minute after pressing the 'USB' button on the cradle, while the camera was in the cradle and I was trying to download my photos from the camera to my computer.

The Camera may display the 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. The maximum supported capacity and media used is Memory Stick Pro Duo with 1 or 2 GB.
If you've already captured the images in the Camera and the error message displays, then try to open different images captured in the Camera and check if the message appears for all the images.
If this happens with all the images, then remove and reinsert the MS (Memory Stick) in the Camera and check if it works. You may also try cleaning the MS terminals and also check if the Internal Memory of the Camera displays the error. If the issue persists, then insert the MS in the Computer slot and transfer all the images to the Computer. If the images appear normally in the Computer, then Format the media in the Camera. To Format the Memory Stick, select the Format option in the Memory Stick Tool Menu of the Camera. (Menu-->Setup-->Memory Stick Tool-->Format) Formatting the MS will delete all the files saved.
The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a computer. To play images you have taken on the camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files. I suggest that you transfer the images from the Camera to the computer and check if it works. After transferring the images, get the Memory formatted from the Camera and start capturing new images. The edited images will not get displayed in the Camera again. Please try not to edit the images in the Computer without transferring it.
do you use a card reader? or do you connect the cam to your pc to download the pics? best way to transfer the images to the pc is a card reader, but some readers wont accept a memorystick with "lock" turned off, so for example if you have a 128MB memorystick, turn write protect on. switch to "off" position (it is a small switch on the stick) then the card reader will "see" the stick, but erasing and writing is not possible with the pc...
try using a memory card reader that supports a xd card-very generic plug and play no software to load and computer should recogtnize card-if not open my computer and you will find new drive letters for card reader in there
You may need to get the new WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) drivers. When you connect a digital camera to any laptop that runs WinXP, the OSmay not recognize the camera. If you download and install new drivers from the Web site, you receive the following error message when WinXP tries to detect the camera: "Windows image acquisition service error system cannot find file specified ‘imaging'." To fix this problem, you must first remove all current related camera drivers and reinstall the updated drivers.
A couple of things you can try: 1. Insert the Camera's USB cord to another USB port of your PC; 2. While disconnected from the PC, verify that the pictures are still inside the camera's memory; 3. Reset the camera (power on/off); 4. Check the camera's batteries; 5. Reboot your PC with the camera attached via the USB; 6. Remove the memory card from the camera and try uploading using a card reader; 7. Uninstall all instances of your USB in your PC's Device Manager, reboot and allow the PC to auto-detect and auto-install necessary drivers; and 8. Verify that the software/drivers for your camera are installed correctly with no yellow or red markings.
Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
