You can try to re-install your software and drivers.

Also, get a card reader. Download your files from a card reader and not necessary to use the usb cable connected to the computer.

How do I transfer images from a sony a200 to a mac I keep getting cannot trasfer tempory images


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I Can't see the pictures or even copy it when I connect it to the computer? what will I do? thanks. GODBLESSU!!!!!!!!


Hi,

The solution depends upon the Operating System. There are many options for transferring the images from the Camera to the Computer. You can either use the supplied Software for transferring the images to the Computer or with the help of Windows Explorer.
Let's try to set the Camera in PTP/MTP Mode and check if it the computer detects the Camera as a Removable Drive. To set the PTP/MTP Mode, select the USB Connect option from the Main Settings 2 Menu of the Camera.
If the Camera is detected as a Removable Drive in the Computer window, then open the DCIM Folder to copy all the images.
If the Software is installed in the Computer, then the Import Media Files screen of the Picture Motion Browser appears automatically.
Click on Import option to import the images. By default, images are imported into a folder created in Pictures folder that is named with the date of importing.

This should help you in transferring the images.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i view stored pictures


Hi,

Thanks for contacting FixYa for your problem.

In order to view pictures stored in your Camera. Please do the following:

  1. Plug the one side (usually small) USB cable into your Camera and other side into your Computer USB Port.
  2. Once connected, you need to ON your camera.
  3. Once ON your computer will detect it and may be you will get option on your Camera about the mode to chose, so chose Disk Storage.
  4. Once you select the mode your computer will automatically detect and will install the required Drivers for it.
After Drivers Are Installed:

After drivers are installed, do the following:

  1. Go to My Computer.
  2. Locate for any new drive (usually Memory drive, or may be a new drive will appear other than your normal drive partitions i.e. C, D, E...). This will contain all the date in your camera.
  3. Simply double click that drive and look for the folders for your pictures.
  4. You can simply copy and paste them to your computer or cut them or delete them without any problem as per your needs.
I hope this will help you all, if not, then do let me know I will assist you in this regard further.

Kind Regards,

Khawar Khalid

I have a Sony Cyper-shot 6.o Mega Pixels camera (given to me with no manual) I've got the cord to connect camera to PC. I cannot figure out how to load the pictures from the camera onto my e-mail account.


The mamory card in the camera will show up as a "Removable Disk" on your computer.

1. Go to "My Computer". The camera will probably be Drive E.
2. Click on Drive E (or whatever the "removable disk" is) and open (click) any folders that show up. The pictures will be several folders down.
3. You can then copy these to your "My Pictures" folder in "My Documents" or "browse" to that drive when you want to attach a picture to your email

Hope this helps!
