Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A200K Digital Camera ?

Sony a200 camera won't connect to PC

\015 My Sony a200 camera's USB connection to my laptop isn't working, and the connection between the camera and USB cable feels wobbly. I've connected twice before and transferred photos with no problem; now the laptop only says ''no media files found''. I've tried all the usual, read the manual, restarted both machines, etc., but the wobbly feel worries me.Could the pins inside be damaged already? I've only had the camera five days. Can this be repaired? Or might it be something else altogether? Thanks!\015

Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
\012
\012 The best way to transfer 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). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
\012
\012 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 management program such as Picasa.
