Install the camera driver that came with it OR buy a cheap usb card reader if your camera uses memory cards. no software is necessary with a card reader. The computer thinks it is just another drive.

SLT-A55V computer doesn't recognize it


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.

I plug in my GEx5 to my computer but my computer doesn't recognize the camera


some cameras need to have the software installed on the computer, did you install the software? depending on the age of the computer some devics can be power hungry on usb ports and so will come up as unrecognised devices, ive expirienced this myself. or last but not least the camera has a faulty usb controller inside, there are a few reasons but the worst one is when its the computer is an old one and the usb ports just dont have enough power to run the camera.

No. You need to plug the camera into the cradle and plug the cradle into a wall outlet. Connecting the camera to the computer merely drains the battery faster, as the camera has to spend juice communicating (or trying to communicate) with the computer, even if only to say it has nothing to say.
