Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

2 Answers

USB Mode -- another connecting problem

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 and I'm having two problems connecting it to my Mac G4 Powerbook. First of all, when I connect my camera to my computer (using either mass storage or Pictbridge), I receive a message saying "Switch on [MENU]." When I go to the Menu, I can choose between auto, mass storage and pictbridge. But whichever I choose, I just get sent back to the same error message. Do you have any suggestions for how I could get my camera to connect to the computer?
Earlier (before this problem came up), I was able to connect the camera to the computer. But, the camera wouldn't show up on either the desktop or in in iPhoto. Any ideas on this part?
Thanks!

    When plugged in to the computer nothing pops up for me to be able to download the pictures onto my computer

    my own just says "USB connecting" but it never connects. I've had the camera since April (it's not Sept) and the camera worked fine up until now. Please let me know if anyone has any ideas of how to fix this.

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

Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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.

Connect your camera with PC through USB link and press Camera Menu, you will see PicBridge option there, select / enable it.

SOURCE: uploading pictures

Mass storage is easier, in my opinion. In that mode, when you hook the camera up to the computer, it will show up as a device in My Computer. Then you can just access your pictures there.

NEED DOWNLOAD FOR SONY CYBER-SHOT DSC-W80, I LOST


Would you like to open your pictures from your Sony Cybershot to your computer? Your cybershot cam is usually plug and play so you dont need a software for that. All you do is to plug in your camera to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. When the computer detected the new usb device, open a Windows Explorer. Right click your windows Start button, and choose Explore. From the list of Drives from the left, you need to find the Drive letter associated with your camera. Just click on that and it will show you the files on the right. The pictures are located somewhere inside those folders. You just need to click and drag them to your computer's local drive.

Should you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!

Compatability?


I set the USB to PictBridge mode (press home button, then main settings). Now iPhoto recognizes the camera and I can import photos.
