Re: DSC F55 - Macintosh

The solution Sony provides in North America is geared strictly towards PC's. The supplied serial port adapter and software do not function with Macs. However, if you peruse through Sony's Japanese web site, you'll notice specific references to a Mac accessory kit. I'm trying to get some info on this kit. In the meantime, here's my solution. I've purchased the Memory Stick to PC Card adapter kit. It turns the memory stick into a PC Card. I've also ordered a USB-based PC Card reader. These two items should allow me to transfer images quite rapidly (11-12 Mbps) to my G3. Only one question. I'm still going to need some software ( I think ) to actually transfer the images from the memory stick/PC Card to the G3.

Re: DSC F55 - Macintosh

I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list. The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.

Hold the camera as if you were taking a picture. Turn it to the left so the skinny side is towards you. At the top, the is a small place that says, "DC IN." Use your finger to pull down at the top of this area. That's it.

ACDSEE with F55 ??


Unfortunately you can't use ACDSee to access your images on the F55. Not unless Sony comes up with a twain driver which seems unlikely. I have to use Picture gear to access the images and transfer them to my PC which I then use ACDSee to view. I also got a floppy adapter.

Could anyone tell.........


What the Adapter Serial to USB does is create a virtual COM port on your computer. Try to see what port number it's assuming. Sometimes it can be a conflict of COM's. Use the Add/Remove Hardware wizard. Regards

DSC-F55 serial connection a disadvantage?


It would take atleast 4 times longer compared to USB. (maybe looking at upwards of 10X slower) I've got the F55 and suggest buying the floppy disk adapter, its only $60 or so and will speed up the xfer considerably. I would say 4times faster.
