Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 Digital Camera

DSC-N1 display different when downloading photos

When I attempted to download photos to my computer, it doesn't show the display USB Connecting or the Cancel button. All it shows is a big dot in the middle with four directional buttons. I'm not sure what happened but this is the first time that the displayed showed that. I brought my camera to the beach and that is when it started occurring. The download still works fine, but I'm concerned that there will be bigger problems later on with the camera. Is there any way to fix it?

You say 'When I attempted to download photos to my computer, it doesn't show the display USB Connecting or the Cancel button. All it shows is a big dot in the middle with four directional buttons.' Not sure where this shows. Does the camera still take picture and upload them OK? Come back

When plugging my dsc w270 into the laptop to transfer pics, the display on my camera says USB mode connecting... then switch on [menu]. what does this mean and how can i download my photos??

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 any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Sony cyber-shot DSC-N1 won't download photos into computer. Camera says no file

See if the file is on the memory card to localize the issue. If not on card then camera is not recording the image. Try another memory card to see if that one works. Let's hope that the issue is with the memory card and not the camera electronics. If it is the latter you might want to think about doing some shopping since repairs on those things, unless a multi thousand dollar camera, are not cost effective.

Pc cant recognize the camera on the USB port

What is the Pc doing that shows you it is not recognizing the camera?
Have you looked in My computer at your drives to see if it is showing there? For some reason mine sometimes shows up my F drive instead of my camera drive. Then you can just click on the drive and open the folder for the photos.
