Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S980 Digital Camera ?

My Sony Cybershot dsc-s980 won't upload pictures to my PC. It tries then shows error.



Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download 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 or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


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 cataloging program such as Picasa.

My Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 shows error code C:13:01 when the either of the current memory sticks I am using, is inserted. However, when I take out the memory stick out, and put on the camera, it shows the "internal memory full".But it does not gives any option to format it. The only one button on the panel is working and so the option of formating could not be done. I even tried to connect it to P.C. It shows four pictures. But again there is no option to either delete or cut the pictures. Pl. d
