If the disc are 5 years of age or older do not expect to retreive these images. The reason the disc is magnetic and the images will be faded or completely gone. If they were stored in a cool dry place they may still be on there.You will need to use a very older model computer that has the drive to install this disc to download. You can try looking at yard sales or the Goodwill Store for a used computer that works

Windows 7 drivers for sony mvc-fd92


You can manually install the universal usb driver for mavica camera. basically you connect the fd92 and wait for the failure report. then manually select the usb driver from the list. this will install the memory card as a flash drive and enable you to copy pictures to your hard drive.

Sony Mavica FD95 Camera


This is a common problem with the Mavica FD95. There is a little switch in the drive slot to sense the write protect tab on the disk. 

If you hold open the drive door without a disk in, you should see this switch where the write protect tab goes. Try operating the switch with a matchstick a few dozen times to attemp to clean the contacts. If that doesn't work then Very carefully let a drop of switch cleaner run into the switch and try operating it a few times then let it dry. Failing that you might want to open the camera to get to the terminals on the switch and test it with a multimeter.

If the switch is faulty and a replacement is not availble then you could just short(or disconnect) it to fool the drive into thinking any disk is writable. 

 

Good luck

My sony dsc-71 cybershot just developed what appears to be a hazy image or an image with a halo effect. The camera is spproximately 4 years old and worked great until just a few days ago.


Do you mean DSC-P71? This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

This is a CCD sensor problem and should be replaced. Try to have it done free of charge by Sony even though your camera is an old model because CCD sensor should last 10 years +.

FD-81 ... Can it use the memory Stick Adapter


I have a Mavica FD81, and I do not believe you can use the memory stick adapter with it. This camera came out long before the adapter was available. The manual only mentions floppy disks.
