I cannot seem to make my XP (Home) OS recognise my Sony Cybershot as a "Device with Removable Storage". Therefore, I am unable to upload images back to the memory stick which is inconvenient as I do not have a CD Writer. I also assumed that I would be able delete and organise images on my camera from my laptop without the need to download the images to my hard drive first. Can anyone help?

Re: Sony Cybershot DSCW1 - Removable Storage?
Some cameras can't do that. I have a HP that only is noted and usable with HP's software. Yours may be one of those type cameras.
In your post you want a feature that may not exist. So you may have to get a card reader.

Sony has the roughest firmware known to man for digital cameras. If running Windows XP or Vista you can simply connect the camera to the USB port and let the computer do the rest. Picbrige works the best for it downloads the quickest. Picbrige will be on your cameras list of choices to use for downloading
To be honest, I am not sure if your post/query was intended for me. However, it shows up in my queue so i couldn't escape it. I will take a shot at the last part.
Sony DSC-W130 has 15MB Integrated Memory and support for Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO Duo cards. Generally unless you install the software for the CybershotDSC-W130, Windows XP/Vista will pick it up as a Mass Storage Device.
The Mass Storage Device emulation allows you access to pictures/video taken; copy, move, delete etc. If you can do these, then the DSC-W130 is working as designed.
However, if there pictures on the DSC-W130 but you are unable to access it, then that is a worry and a poblem. Note if you have a memory stick installed. The internal memory will be inaccessible. You will have to remove the memory stick before the internal memory initialises and is accessible
I am afraid I am not an expert on Sony DSC-W130. My response is best effort
If you are wanting to access your PSP via a USB cable, then you don't need a driver. go to your PSP's system settings and select USB connection (connect the cable to the PC and PSP prior to this) and allow windows to install the generic drivers.
XP will recognise this as a Removable Storage Device (just like an external hard drive or Flash drive). Are you wanting to add files to the memory or just take a backup of current files?
Reread the instructions on how to connect the camera to the computer, paying particular attention to what mode the camera should be in.
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.
