Are you talking about when you connect the camera to the computer the viewfinder is blank? It should say "USB Mode Mass Storage" on the View finder. Should pop up on your computer. If not unplug it from the computer and shutoff camera, then restart computer. Then connect everything again. If not, I would then start by reinstalling the software. I really don't get your ?. You can't get to a menu when connected to the computer. It is just use to transfer pictures/video from your camera to computer if you don't have a Memory Stick Pro Duo slot on your computer.

You can either use the supplied A/V and USBMulti connector cable for connecting the Camera to the TV. Connect the Yellow cable to the Yellow port on the TV for Video and the Red and White for audio. Then select the proper input on the TV where the cable is connected.
You may also connect the HD Out of the Camera to the HDMI Input on the TV using the compatible HDMI cable for the Camera.
Before connecting the Camera to the TV, you may have to change the settings in the Camera depends on the TV type.
1. Component Settings from the Main Settings 2 Menu of the Camera should be set to HD or SD depends on the connection. Also depends on HDMI (HD) or A/V (SD) video connection.
2. Video Out Settings from the Main Settings 2 menu of the Camera should be set to NTSC or PAL depends upon the color system of the TV.
Try changing the settings in the Camera and connect it to the TV to view the images.
1) Try uninstalling then re-installing your Sony software.
2) When you connect to the PC and switch on, Click on Start - "My Computer". Your hard drives and disk drives should appear in the window.
Have a good look, is there a new drive, it may be called Sony, or USB mass storage device it may just be called drive E or F.
If so double click on that drive, if there's a folder there, double click on there, with luck you should see your pictures, that new drive is really your camera.
You should be able to move pictures by copy and pasting. Once copied you can deleted them from your camera.
3) You can buy a device called a "Memory card reader" Make sure its good for sony memory sticks.
You take you card from you camera and put it in the card reader. Then, once plugged into a USB port its just like another HDD as described in 2.
4) I should have said this first, try another USB port if you can, it my just be dust in the port making life hard............
I have a Intel Mac Powerbook running OS10.5.8 On a coolpix 100, the default setting is that the camera is charged by the computer through the USB cable. You need switch that OFF. While the camera still does not show as usb device, you can access it through the Nikon transfer program AND through iPhoto
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.
Please install software "Picture Package" CD came with camera. Connect USB cable to camera and other end of cable to PC. Windows XP or Vista will recognize it and install its drivers automatically. If camera is not recognized by Windows, go to camera Menu, enable USB Streaming and check. Hope info will help you.
