Buy a card reader to download to a folder you create on your desktop and you'll never regret it.

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.

Downloading Pics I'm having the same problem...all of my pics downloaded just fine the first time. Now when I try downloading I keep getting "No camera found" error box even though I know it's there.

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

Lost Pictures Our company has the Sony MVC-CD500 digital camera. I recently used this camera to take several pictures while on a job site. Back at the office, I could view the pictures in the camera's viewfinder, but was unable to download to my PC.

Hi, I sure hope you guys can help me out! I am trying to download some pics from my computer onto the 4GB memory card in my Canon Powershot A460, but the camera won't let me.

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera
