Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A350 Digital Camera ?

My Sony A100. When connected to a computer via the USB cable, the camera no longer goes into transfer mode.


Answers :

I just had the same problem tonight, actually. It's because I just started using the Memory Stick Pro Duo Adaptor for compactflash slot. Make sure the camera is not plugged into the usb slot. Go to menu, go to settings tab (the wrench icon on top), down twice to "Transfer Mode" and select PTP. If it doesn't work you can always change it back. I noticed also that in PTP mode, it might not let you delete images after copying. ??
That's all I have at the moment. Good luck.

Purchased a Polaroid x800 camera and can not transfer photos to computer (and I have tried 3 computers - 2 running XP Pro and 1 running Windows 7). Upon connecting the USB cable it shows up as a removable disk (G: on my computer) but when I go to open the file/drive I get a pop-up that states "Please insert a disk into drive G:". I called Polaroid and the only help offered was to take the camera back. Target gladly exchanged but I have the same issue with a second camera. Anyone got a clue?
