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

I have a Dell GX-60 OS Win XP Home. The driver that came on disk for the Sony Cybershot DSC-S40 is not for XP and sony said that XP should start the Wizzard and load the correct drivers from within XP. Well it will not. It says it can not find the driver. I just get the yellow ? mark beside SONY in the devises listed. Anyone have a suggestion?

This type of hookup works fine on my computers that have XP Home. It sounds like the problem is with your computer. Do you know for sure that the USB on your computer is working? If you are not sure....You should check to see if Universal Serial Bus is listed in the Device Manager.

In the Device Manager, scroll down to the bottom and see if you find a device called "Universal Serial Bus controller". And inside that device you should at least find "USB Root Hub". If you do not have both of those devices, you need to contact Dell for instructions on how to load your motherboard USB drivers. ...................... If that checks out, then find a friend with a computer with the XP operating system and connect your camera to that computer. If it does not work on that computer, then it is time to return the camera and get a replacement.

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.

CyberShot DSCW55 driver wont work on win xp x64


No, their is not one if its not compatible you will have to purchase a camera that is compatible with win xp 64. Another option is to get a USB card reader ($15-$20) and put your memory stick inside it and goes directly into the usb port. You can pull your photos off just like a portable memory stick. I use this option for my Sony camera and my laptop has a media port that takes the card directly with no need to have a USB card reader....

Cybershot DSC- W1


So many video/picture programs will work with this camera. I use it with both Vista and XP OS. I never loaded software on Vista PC. I just use the "Start/Computer/Disk F (on my PC)" I just hook up the USB cable to camera and PC and then click on Disk F. You should then see the picture files and you can click and drag these files to a photo folder that you designate.
