Mac and D770

Just purchased a DSC-D770 and I'm having trouble getting pictures into my G-3. It has USB and firewire, but I can't see any included connectors or Mac compatible software. Can anyone offer any help? Thanks. -- JD Jones

Re: Mac and D770

I have the same camera and haven't found any software from Sony. Your best bet - and it's faster too - is to get a USB to Compact Flash and/or SmartMedia reader from one the the digital camera stores (Newer, Simple, SanDisk are a few brands) for less than $100, plus get a higher capacity Compact Flash or Smartmedia card. That doesn't solve the problem of using Memory Sticks - perhaps Sony will wake up and realize that serious users are using Macs! No big loss since Sony bundled only an 8 meg stick thou.

I cannot connect my Sony Cybershot DSC-P32 camera to my Mac OS X system. It is not plug and play with the USB connector. Is there a driver?


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 iPhoto or any other photo management program.

D770 Mini Plug to IEEE 1394 Interface


Hi Paul, Sorry, but there is no firewire setup on the D770. There is a video output jack on the camera only. You will have to use big ATA or PCMCIA cards and plug them into the PCMCIA card slot. You can also use PCMCIA card adapters for MemoryStick, SmartMedia, and CompactFlash cards(CF). Those are your only options of media for the laptop or PC. The camera comes with a parallel port PCMCIA cardreader. It is reccommended to be used on your PC. Hope this info helps you out.

No, from what I have been reading, it isn't compatible. Other users report an Error 14. Sony does say in their manual that not even all PCMCIA cards will work.
