Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

Can't download pictures from camera to computer

When I attach my camera cable to the USB port on any computer, I can no longer view any pictures or download them. When I try and access the folder to look at them, it says the folder is empty - despite there being hundreds of pictures on the camera. This problem has happened suddenly - previously I could download pics from camera to computer with no problems.

Need to download photos from camera to computer


Two ways - either attach the camera to a spare USB port on the computer with the supplied lead, and treat the camera as a satellite drive, or else remove media device and use a separate card reader to copy the images to the computer.

How do i put pictures from my camera to my computer


After attaching the cable to the USB port on your computer, it should see your camera as an external storage device. Click on My Computer and you should see your camera as a drive, click on this drive and open the picture folder, than you can copy these photo to your computer.
ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

I wanted to know how to download the video to my computer


First you're going to need to locate the USB cable that comes with your camera and plug it into your computer via USB-port. Most cameras use a mini-usb cable, and it should look like the picture renzyfeist_1.jpg It should look something like that or similar to that cable and can plug into your camera. I'm not quite sure what model or brand your digital camera is, but look around for a flap or plug-in hole that is in your camera. That should be where you plug in the cable.
After that, take the cable and plug it into your USB-port on your computer, it's a rectangular shaped port that should match up with the other end of the cable.
When you've connected your camera to your computer, it should automatically detect the camera and prompt you to open the camera to view files. If not, follow these steps.
  1. Open start menu
  2. Computer
  3. Look for your device, should be labeled "YOUR DEVICE NAME - MODEL"
  4. Double click on your device
  5. There should be one or two folders once you've clicked it, click on the one that starts with DCM.
  6. Find your video and photos inside that folder and drag it onto your desktop
Once that's done, you should have the video that you captures on your camera onto your computer for viewing.
Good luck!

How do I get the pictures from the camera to my computer?


There should be a CD and USB cable that come with your camera. Install the CD and install the program. Connect cable from camera to computer. Turn camera to view setting and turn on. On screen prompts should ask if you want to download pictures from camera.

I can't upload pictures from my camera b/c the usb link does not recognize the camera.


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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

'USB Over Current Notice' unable now to download photos to computer


This is usually because the USB cable is shorting. Looks like an issue with the internals of the camera

Transferring pictures


Once the camera is attached to the computer via USB cable, windows explorer treats the camera card just like another hard drive. the same goes if the camera card is inserted into a card reader.

Because of this, the camera can be seen as a listed hard drive, (C:), (D:), (E:)..... With windows explorer open view "Computer", listing all existing drives, plug your usb cable into the computer and the camera. When you turn on your camera, AutoPlay begins. Choices range from import pictures to viewing pictures with whatever programs are loaded into you computer.

If not AutoPlay then just use Windows Explorer. The Camera will appear as "Removable Disk (K:) [(K:) is on my computer]. Opening this disk will show subdirectories "DCIM" and 100OLYMP. Your pictures are in 100OLYMP. They can be higlighted and drug into the folder of your choice on your computer.

View with windows media center, etc. or download Google's free PICASA 3. It can also download ("Import") your pictures.

good luck

Take your sd memory card out of your camera, and put it in your computer. A file with your pictures should appear. Copy thoes pictures into a different fold on you computer. Take you sd memory card out of your computer and plug it back into your camera. Your pictures will be both on your camera and on your computer.

I hope this solution helps. Please rate this solution.

Where is port to connect USB cable?


I'm sorry you're having trouble with this. I have put together a picture that shows where the mini-USB plug is supposed to be attached to the camera. I hope it helps. This picture actually shows plugging the AV cable into the receptical, but right behind it is the mini-USB port. This is where you connect the USB cable. It looks like you have to lift the flap on the corner to reveal the plugs.
