Answers :

There are several causes and possible fixes here, I will enumerate them from simplest to most complicated.
\015\012
\015\0121.check your camera settings if you\015\012inadvertently changed the camera mode when hooked up to a pc.
\015\012
\015\0122. check your USB cable. Clean the ends and make sure they are shiny.USB\015\012cable ends where the connector had a thin film over it which was enough\015\012to make for a flaky connection.
\015\012
\015\0123. A software issue could be causing it too, download the latest\015\012drivers / software from the Sony site and uninstall completely the\015\012old drivers and software then install the new one.
\015\012
\015\0124. After trying all of the above and it still does the same thing, I\015\012suggest getting on the phone with either Microsoft or Sony as this\015\012might be a know incompatibility.
\015\012In the meantime, you might want to consider buying a card reader to be\015\012able to download your files and to serve as a backup for those times\015\012when you cannot download directly from the camera..
