Sony Cybershot DSCW1 - Removable Storage?

I cannot seem to make my XP (Home) OS recognise my Sony Cybershot as a "Device with Removable Storage". Therefore, I am unable to upload images back to the memory stick which is inconvenient as I do not have a CD Writer. I also assumed that I would be able delete and organise images on my camera from my laptop without the need to download the images to my hard drive first. Can anyone help?

That's not how it works. The stick was designed to download from your camera not upload from your computor. It's like the people who think that they can compare pixels to dots per inch on the printer.

Some cameras can't do that. I have a HP that only is noted and usable with HP's software. Yours may be one of those type cameras. In your post you want a feature that may not exist. So you may have to get a card reader.

I'm connecting the USB cable from my camera to Win7 laptop, and stuck on the "USB Mode Mass Storage Memory Stick (at bottom) screen, and nothing is happening. Can you HELP?


You mean clicked on USB mode. You should be able to find this memory stick as a drive by clicking on computer and looking under "Removable Storage". Just click on drive that pertains to this memory stick.

How do I download pictures from my Cybershot Sony Digital Camera to my pc. I have windows xp home


Most of those cameras come in PTP mode.
In the camera: Go to the menu, and select USB MASS STORAGE mode.
This will be easier to you, it works like a usb pen drive.

Your pc is not recognising the camera or the memory inside it. Try connecting it with sony pc suit. Make sure the pc recognises the camera as a new device before proceeding.

Downloaded driver for cybershot dsc s500, then try to interface camera with computer, pc doesnt see the camera in control panel or my computer removable hard drive.


Sony has the roughest firmware known to man for digital cameras. If running Windows XP or Vista you can simply connect the camera to the USB port and let the computer do the rest. Picbrige works the best for it downloads the quickest. Picbrige will be on your cameras list of choices to use for downloading

Cybershot DSC-N1 restore internal memory photos


You can recover deleted photos with camera recovery software like asoftech photo recovery, download from
Camera Photo Recovery Software

Please be noted that your camera memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

Help! Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 won't load to XP Home


Step One: Reread the instructions on how to connect the camera to the computer, paying particular attention to what mode the camera should be in. Step Two: If the Sony instructions don't say what mode the camera shoud be in: Make sure that the camera is turned on and in "Playback" mode (the mode where you can view the photos on the LCD), before connecting it to the computer.
