Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S650 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I don't know if its the camera or the USB cable, but when I plug the cable into the computer, nothing pops up. When I looked at the cable, it didn't appear to be broken, so I have no idea how I'm supposed to upload my pictures.

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.

Hi there:
You don't need special software to transfer photos to your computer if you have a USB port on your computer and a USB cable that will attach to your camera on one end, and the USB port on the other.

Plug the camera into the USB port by means of the cable, and turn on your camera. That's all there is to it. In just a moment or so, a message will pop up to tell you that your USB drive is ready to use. You may even get a pop up asking what you want to do?

Select "Open Files", or if the pop up option does NOT pop up, open your "My Computer", and you will see an additional hard drive. That hard drive is actually your camera, and you can go in, copy all the photo files onto your hard drive, delete them from your camera, or anything else you would do between two folders on your own hard drive.

However, I suggets visit THIS LINK or this OTHER LINK

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I've plugged in the USB cable to the camcorder and computer, but nothing happens. How do I transfer what is recorded on the tape to my computer using the USB cable I was given?


You didn't mention a make or model for the camera, but you more than likely need to install and run a software package that the manufacturer provides with the camera. If you don't have a CD or DVD that came with camera, check the manufacturer's web site for the software.

Where on the camera do you plug in the plug for the computer, i know where the usb goes on the computer but the plug I got does not fit in the camera


Your camera requires a "U8" type USB cable to connect between the standard USB port on your computer and the U8 jack on the camera.

A "U8" style USB cable & jack.

The U8 USB is similar in appearance to the USB "Mini" or USB "A" style jack. But will not mate to any other jack besides the U8 style. A typical USB Mini or "A" is shown below for comparison.

The camera shipped with the correct cable, but you probably didn;t notice there was a difference between it and other USB Mini cables - and simply grabbed the wrong one.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

My computer does not read my camera any more. i dont know why


Your computer will see the camera as a usb device usually a camera or a usb storage drive or drives (one for the camera main memory and/or another for the memory card)

What you want to do is make sure your camera cables are unplugged and reboot the computer. Then plug them in and the camera and see if it detects it. Sometimes hardware or the operating system have trouble remembering what is plugged in aka legacy usb device and this is all that it takes to fix it or even just plugging it into a usb port. The next thing to try is to plug it in using a idfferant cable and if you can try a differant comuter. If it works on a new cable or a differant computer then you know what the problem was or is. So if you tried a new cable on a differant computer you could be fairly sure the problem is the camera itself. If you narrow it down to the camera about all you can do is try a reset or make sure the usb setting are set to default.

Past this point you are looking at replacing the camera or taking it into the shop. Unless you are under warrenty a new camera is cheaper. You should still be able to use a card reader and get your pictures off of the memory card. A bit more hassle than plugging in the cable but better than nothing.

My computer is not showing when my camera is plugged in


Make sure the camera is turned on, plug the USB cable into your PC first, then into the camera, wait for a beep from your PC to show it has recognized the hookup, then go to "My Computer" and look for the Fuji icon. Don't unplug the camera anytime the lights are flashing on it.

Still nothin'!


Hey there
Let try this before you go to Rite Aid
this I took from the camera manual, so make sure you flow the steps
For Windows 98/me customers:
Please install camera drive before connecting.
1. Turn the camera and computer on, then connect the camera to the computer with the
included USB cable, and then slide the Function switch to ► (Playback Function). (I think this is very importent make sure you put the playback function)
2. “USB Mass Storage drive” appears on the computer screen.(if it doesn't pop up, go to "my computer" and look for "USB mass storage drive"

Hope will help more and let me know what's happening

When we plug the camera into the macintosh it wont recognize the camera


Well after a bit of trial and error, I found a somewhat consistent solution.  Here are the steps:
1.  While the camera is off, plug the USB cable into the camera (Don't plug the other end of the USB cable into the computer yet)
2.  Turn the camera on and press the mode button
3.  Navigate to the Camera icon
4.  Plug the USB cable into the computer (the camera icon will change to the USB screen)
5.  You will notice nothing happens!
6.  Unplug the USB cable from the computer
7.  The camera screen switches back to the Camera icon
8.  Plug the USB cable back into the computer and a VTech 773 icon should show up on your desktop.
9.  When your finished copying pictures to your hard drive, drag the VTech 773 icon to the trash.
I don't know why it works but it worked 9 out of 10 times for me.
Let me know if you find a simpler solution.

Computer won't recognize camera.


I don't know how much of a solution this is (I have the same problem now), but my computer actually has a slot where the memory card can be inserted by itself. It isn't as convenient, but I can transfer pictures directly from the memory card to the computer.
