Buy a memory card reader for your pro duo card and bypass the cable connection from camera-sounds like bad driver or software issue-card reader should be plug and play with no software and should download no problems!

Hey I just have the same problem, them recently I very lightly tapped it (against the bottom of the camera, holding it upright) and boom, it works again. See here some other people which did the same and worked:

I think is just a problem with the alignement of the lens,

Windows cannot open fileI have SONY DSC W55 cyber shot camera.My laptop is dell inspiron and I am using Windows 8 operating system.When I connect to camera to PC it shows as USB device has connected.


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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

How do I download contents of a memory stick in Cyber Shot DSC-W55 to my Mac


If you can connect an USB cable to your camera and then plug the cable into the USB port of your computer, it may see the camera and menory card as an external storage device and you maybe able to open the folsers on the memory card to download the photos.
If this does not work then insert the SD memory card into an USB reader and plug it into the USB port of your MAC. You can then open the memory folder to copy your photos to your MAC.

Thanks.
