Why my sony steadyshot camera dsc-w180 memory is not recognise to my laptop when inserted, but it support when i inserted to my camera, i want to transfer file to my laptop but no way please give me y


It is not only the card and computer or camera and computer that is needed. To interface anything to a computer you need a program. Most of the time called a driver. When you put a card reader to the computer, or when there is a card reader in the computer you need a driver that came with the card reader or the computer. To read from a camera, you need a driver that came with the camera. More and more, the interfacing of cameras becomes standard, so if you ever installed a camera driver it could be other cameras can communicate with your computer. But no guaranty it always work.
With the correct driver, your camera acts like an external memory to the computer and the computer can read the pictures on the memory card in the camera.
So if you use a card reader or a camera on the computer always meme sure you have installed the correct software that came with the apparatus.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W180 won't turn on when plugged into computer.


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 Picasa.

I got sony cybershot dsc p 200 model digital camera. But it is not supported as web cam . Please give suggestions to set up the camera as web cam


Many digital cameras support streaming video over the USB connection, to use as a webcam. Unfortunately Sony cameras do not do this; I am confident of this, because they offer a tutorial describing how to make an analogue connection from your camera to your computer, for use as a webcam! (I feel this is a poor solution because few computers have an analogue video-in connection, and not all cameras have a video-out. They would not offer this solution if the USB streaming was possible.)

I'm sorry to tell you that unless you are really lucky and are able to follow Sony's tutorial, your best bet is to buy a webcam and forget using your camera. A whole webcam could easily be cheaper than the cable that Sony suggest you use...

Can sony dsc-w55 cybershot used as webcam through usb


No. The CyberShot was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream videos live to another device.

Can i use Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 as webcam and how?


Yes you can use DCS-S700 sony cybershot as a webcam but you must first have the TV tuner card that accepts AV input from an RCA cable (red, yellow and white wire) which is free when you buy the camera (included in the BOX). Sets your TV tuning software (I've used "honestech" software) to receive Composite Input. After setting, close the TV tuning software. Then sets your messenger or any net conferencing software to accept the TV tuner card as your webcam.Yurika!!! It works for me and the videos are very clear. Except only that the focus box of the camera don't disappear.
Even I've used it to document my birthday party from morning to afternoon recording the video directly to my computer without any problem.

Oppss. Dont forget to rate me.
