Try 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.

You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.

I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.

Usually when you connect your camera to your PC the camera’s icon appears under my computer. Are you saying that you cannot see your camera icon under My Computer? If that is the case you should try with another USB cable. Once you see the camera’s icon you simply open it (right click and select open or simply double click on it). Then the contents of the memory card in your camera will be displayed. You may then highlight them and copy and paste them anywhere in your hard drive.

SOURCE: Cant upload photos from my Sony DSC-S750

Digital cameras on windows seem to like getting a letter that is higher than D but lower than H in the alphabet. I don't know why. But when windows assigns out all the letters through H: it sometimes stops mounting some devices properly.

TRY THIS

Uninstall the camera driver and software, un-hook the camera, and restart. Then boot the PC. Make sure that you do not currently have any drives using letters F or G. If you do, use disk manager in your control panel to change the CD/DVD drive letter to Y,X, or Z

Attach the camera to a different USB port than you usually use (Believe it or not that is critical) and then reinstall the driver and software. Give it a moment before attempting to access the device and make sure that it is assigned a drive letter.

Should work fine after that.

MY SD HC CARD HAS 2 GB DATA ITS SHOWS IN CAMERA BUT WHEN I CONNET THE PC ITS SHOWS BLANK


maybe the files are hidden. In Windows 7 open windows explorer -> hit the Organize button -> Hit Folder and Search Options -> go to the view tab -> click Show hidden files...In XP I think you open windows explorer -> tools on the toolbar -> folder options -> view tab -> click show hidden files... Then check if you can see the files.

Hi there,

You can connect your camera to the computer using the usb cable. Once the camera has been detected, RIGHT click on your windows Start button and choose Expore to open windows explorer.

Pc cant recognize the camera on the USB port


What is the Pc doing that shows you it is not recognizing the camera?
Have you looked in My computer at your drives to see if it is showing there? For some reason mine sometimes shows up my F drive instead of my camera drive. Then you can just click on the drive and open the folder for the photos.
