Hi! If you're using Windows XP, try doing this: -Control Panel -Folder Options -View and "select the show hidden files and folders". It worked for me and I hope it'll help. :)

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My dsc-w310 wont connect on my computer, it says switch on usb mass storage which is on? what to do?


Sometimes it is easier to remove the memory card from your camera and connect directly using a card reader. Modern computers often have a card reader built in for the popular cards like and SD card. Sony often have 'Sony Memory Stick' cards. This would usually mean you have to purchase a card reader separately unless it is a Sony laptop. Card readers are less than 10 GBP each often only 5 GBP. Connect card reader cable to a USB port open windows explorer or my computer, create a new folder on your computer and then click and drag the photos from the card reader to the folder on your computer.

USB Mode -- another connecting problem


It looks like the memory card for your Sony camera formatted in either FAT or FAT32 which is readable by windows computers.

If you attempt to use the format feature on your Mac, you will destroy the card
