Most times you dont need software installed in the computer.
With you camera plugged in and turned on, try to go to START / MYCOMPUTER and take a look. See if you can see there a drive which point to the camera.

- or -

try to connect the camera in a different usb port of the pc. that could also work.

How do i copy pics from my computer to my nikon d90-it says the device is disconnected or has stopped working


It is never advisable to send pics from the computer to the camera...most of the time, the card and even the camera can be corrupted.

I don't know how long you had this problem nor when it started.
I don't know that it is a poblem, and I don't know if it can be fixed.
Too many variables: the camera, the USB plugs, the USB cable, the software, the possible interference, and so on.

Have you tried to upload the pictures and videos using a card reader?

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.

Unable to download pictures from camera t1031 to PC


Some you need a USB cord that plugs into your USB drive, and it will assist you when you need to upload them. These instructions, again, depend on your camera and PC model. If you have a camera that uses a data chip, it would plug into the K drive of your computer, which is usually below the USB drive (it is on mine.) It would look like a thin, long plug that is on the side of your computer that would look like the side that you plug the chip into. Again, this depends on your PC, camera, and your method of uploading the pictures.
