Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I took pictures on my Sony Cybershot that I want to upload to my computer. I cannot use my memory card reader to upload the pics. How do I plug the cord into the computer? I cannot find a port on the actual camera to plug anything into. Is there something that slides out to reveal a port? Please help!

Are you saying you have a separate card reader but it doesn't work? Or are you speaking about a card reader slot on the computer that doesn't work? Card readers have slots for different cards on one end and a USB plug on the other that you plug into a USB slot on your computer. I took pictures on my - f1def5b.jpg

Cant upload pics from sony cybershot to my laptop


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.

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.

How do you upload pictures on the internal memory?


If you normally upload your pictures by connecting via the USB port, remove the memory stick before connecting the camera to the computer. If you normally upload your pictures by putting the memory stick into a card reader, use the camera's memory stick tool to copy the pictures from internal memory to memory stick.

the memory stick pro duo should fit right into the sony cybershot....
if your struggling to load your photos onto your computer buy a universal memory card reader!

Memory card error is common problems in various sd cards and cf cards. I took a closer look at my little SD memory card. It has a sliding lock on it to protect data. Check to see if the card works when you slide that lock up or down. Read more about memory card:
