Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera ?

Why wont my camera come up when i plug in to my mac


Answers :

Consider 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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

My photos always upload to my MAC automatically when I plug the camera into the computer. Today, however, the camera comes on, the screen comes on the camera and it says "busy," the screen then goes black, a red light in the bottom right hand corner of the back of the camera begins to flash, and eventually it even stops.

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.


I think this has to do with the video format and/or version of Quicktime being used in the camera vs the PC.I have no clue on a mac but I experienced similar on certain Win-dohs OS's some time ago.I'm not sure it's a defect so much as a c ... Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera
