I've got a Sony Cybershot DSC-P50. It's kinda old and it's been dropped a couple times but lately my Windows XP won't recognize it. When I plug it in to the USB it says device not recognized. I went to Sony.com and redownloaded the driver. That didn't help. I tried the install imaging device wizard in the control panel but I can't get Sony to show up on the manufacturers list. Help is appreciated.
Most digital cameras software require that the camera be in playback mode (mode for viewing photos) before the computer will recognize the camera. If that is not the solution, be sure to go back and read your Sony User's Manual and see if you are overlooking something. If you are unable to get the computer to recognize the camera you can always buy a card reader (about $20).
