Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera ?

Importing Error When I try to import pictures from my camera onto my computer,  once the import starts an error pops up saying: "The following error occurred while importing DSC...JPG: The system cannot find the path specified."  It asks what I would like to do and gives three options: "Try again", "Skip this file", or "Skip all files with errors".  I tried all three- "Try again" = the error popped up again . "Skip this file" = the same thing happened with the next picture . "Skip all files


Answers :

The problem is probably the same one i had. After successfully importing videos and pictures from my SD card, Windows 7 started giving me that error. I discovered that it was caused by the fact that I had imported some directly to an external USB hard drive (E:) and had set the default import directory to it (I can't remember if I had done this dileberately, or if W7 remembered it).
\015\012Fix: Just before you start the import, click the more options link at the bottom, and change your default folder to the local drive or to an attached external drive, something that exists at the time.
\015\012Worked like a charm after that!
