Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505 Digital Camera

1 Answer

F505 serial connection is dead.

I have tried to use the serial connection between my new DSC-F505 and my good old laptop (an IBM Thinkpad 760 without USB). In device manager, COM1 is reported as working properly. But when I connect the camera , accurately following the Sony manual instructions, all what happens is a total freeze. Not even Ctrl-alt-delete is working. I know that I should buy a PCMCIA memory card adapter, but it is very expensive in my country. I would rather buy a 32MB memory stick for that money.

Most drivers now only comes on CD. Without a wcd-Rom, you would have to split the drivers files into multiple floppy drive then rejoin it on the laptop.
