Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A200K Digital Camera ?
USB connection doesn't register on PC
\015 I've downloaded pics from my calera a few times successfully. But now nothing is happening. My PC is not registering the connection. I've attached the same lead to another camera which works fine, so it's definitely the camera not the cable or the PC. Help!\015
I also have this problem. I've noticed that my video and PC-interface cable use the opposite sides of this proprietary connector. Each one stresses the center pins of this connection and moves them each time I plug the other one in. I thing this has resulted in a broken usb connector on my camera.
Have you tried reinstalling the software? It may be the PC not picking up the camera, rather than the camera itself.

Go to "My Computer" and locate the camera's drive - it should be detected and show the camera as a device connected to the computer - if it's not then check the "Device Manager" to determine if the driver has been installed. If the driver is not inst ... Panasonic Lumix DMC F3 Digital Camera

USB connection The computer cannot access the Memory Stick® media in the camera when connected with the USB cable. I connect the camera to my computer using the USB, then after 10 seconds its says there is no device connected to the computer, and then it gives me option to cancel, retry, or continue but it usually connects automatically itself again. The only problem is that I can't do anything with pictures can't copy, delete, or view them. I'ce already tried to delete and reinstall the driver.
I would invest in a memory card reader. You can pick one up for under $20. Using a card reader allows you to avoid having to deal with drivers and such that may or may not be loaded on your PC. A card reader should work just fine for ya. Good luck ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

I used to be able to connect the camera to any pc by connecting with the cord to an usb port - all I did was connect and switch on the camera and it gave me the option of 'computer' and then it would give me the option to open the files and download onto the pc, but now when i plug it into the usb port and switch the power on the camera just switches on and does not show up in the computer at all so my photo's cannot be downloaded onto my pc

I am trying to find the schematics for the main board for my Panasonic Lumix tz-5 camera. When I try to turn it on it says that it is "Connecting to USB" even though it is not connected. I have taken it apart a couple times to see if there is any corrosion on the usb connection or on the chip that the usb connects to. If I had a schematic of the main board I could possibly follow the circuitry and trouble shot it. If I could find the replacement boards and they were cheap enough I could also rep
