Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-D770 Digital Camera

1 Answer

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

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.

Firewire port usff 7010


If you're asking if a Dell OptiPlex 7010 USFF will support Firewire the answer is No...Unless you purchase and install a Firewire card

The OptiPlex 7010 USFF has the following external connections:
  • Front Panel: one microphone connector and one headphone connector
  • Back Panel: one line-out connector and one line-in/microphone connector
  • Network Adapter: one RJ45 connector
  • Serial: one 9-pin connector; 16550 C compatible
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • Video: 15-pin VGA connector
  • 20-pin DisplayPort connectors - 2
I don't recommend any USB to Firewire convertors but if you can find a Firewire Convertor PCI Express Card you can try installing it but remember the USFF has only one Mini PCI Express 52-pin connector, I've highlighted a possible product. It allows for Firewire 800 speeds. The included optional internal Molex power connection is only required if your Firewire device doesn't have its own power adapter

It could be a mini USB connector, but on Wikipedia, you can find all USB connectors with name and picture.

Location firewire input port


There isn't one on the back panel. You must connect the USB/1394 bracket that's included with the board to an empty slot on the rear of the computer and hook up its connectors INSIDE the computer to the appropriate headers on the motherboard: the purple firewire connector would connect to the purple header (DUH!) on the RIGHT in the pic below, it's a DOUBLE firewire header and it's the only place this bracket will fit. The yellow USB connector would go to any open USB header on the board (guess what color...) Very simple, really.

Optionally if your computer case has a built-in firewire port on the FRONT panel, as most do nowadays, you can connect that to the appropriate header on the board using the already-installed cable that's connected to that front firewire port (connect this one to the purple header on the LEFT, it's just a SINGLE firewire port.)
However, this header's pins will NOT match up properly with almost all case's front-panel firewire connectors. You would most likely have to switch around 2 or 3 of the little wires that go into the connector so that it matches the motherboard's pin-out.

It's clearly labled in the manual for the board, and isn't really all that difficult to switch the wires around, but I would recommend just going with the first option and connect the included bracket to the back since it was designed to go with this board and requires no modification.

USB Connection Problems


You say have a SanMax HD-338-CB USB/Firewire External HD with a 160MB drive. You then say sometimes I have to reboot Windows XP pro 2 or 3 time before I see the drive using a USB 2.0 connection. Fire wire is a different system with a different connector style- so it should not be in a USB port or a USB connector should not be in a Firewire device. Get you device and connections sorted The desktop display simply puts up a device it will not differentiate which USB or Firewire

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.
