Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
My iphoto does not appear to recognize the camera but in the past I have been able to download the photos from the memory stick to my desktop despite iPhoto not being able to do it. I am not sure if I need to change a default photo viewer or not and I am not sure where to start.
As of now, I am not able to download new pics to my desktop.
I also no longer have the original software CD that came with the camera and I am not sure if it was even downloaded in the past.
OMG WOW. what is with people these days? what makes them think a digital photo is not a "FILE!!!!". screw any software your sony cam needs to run. you dont need it. its brainwashing garbage to keep computer users in a trance. sony digital cameras store their photos as files(like ALL digital cameras do). you simply plug your camera, or the camera's memory card into your computer. it will show up as a drive just like "ALL STORAGE DEVICES" do. you simply navigate to the folder inside the camera/memory card and "COPY AND PASTE" the files you want transfered. or drag and drop, same thing almost.
if i were you, i would never use photo managing software unless you constantly take hundreds of photos per day and need mass organizing.
but i reccomend making date labeled folders and manually creating your picture albums.
right click>new>folder. then copy whatver you want inside of it. the software you have used before does this exact same thing. just navigate to the directory where it stores the files at. the program will tell you in its settings. most programs that deal with somewhat personal files save to your "My Documents" folder. so its a 99% chance that is where the rest of your pictures are.
*do not forget! a photo is nothing but a "FILE" once it is stored on a digital medium.
Also, if you do not know how to navigate folders with the "2" unloosable mouse buttons you have, then you may be suffering from some cognitive function impairment and you need to see a doctor.
