Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
Try to reinstall drivers for the camera.
If there is no way to get this working you can always buy a card reader and copy the photos from the card directly, without having to connect the camera.

Unlike XP, Windows 7 doesn't seem to automaticaly ask you what you want to do when you hook up your camera. I use the Windows Live Photo Gallery, open that program and there is a button for import in the upper left.
