Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC, which I have previously been able to transfer photos and videos via a usb cable. I am not able to do this at the moment and cannot remember if I had previosly installed any software before laptop was restored...my laptop is not recognising the camera when connected? Can you advise? Many thanks.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.\012\012\012

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.

I have recently bought a Samsung Camcorder Model #MX20 with the Cyberlink Media Show 4 software. When installed on my laptop, everything works well, but when installed on my desktop, I cannot get the video picture when playing it back, only the sound. - After asking around, I was informed that the problem might be something to do with the required "codec" and to download the VLC Media Player which has all the required codec info.
