Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

I have a Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera. I have an eMac, OX 10, Version 10.5.5. Up until yesterday I was able to connect my camera to the computer to download pictures from the camera. All of a sudden it has become impossible for me to get a connection. I connect the cable to the camera and to the usb port and then turn it on. Nothing happens. Help!!!!!


Answers :

Problems like this can be eliminated by using a card reader.
These USB card readers usually need no drivers with the latest OS systems. With older systems you may need drivers. They will show up lile a mass storage device. I have used a card reader for a few years, so much better, and because I have many different cameras, that solves another problem that is all the drivers for the different ones.

If you still want to use your camera, here are some pointers. Uninstall the drivers for this camera. Then reboot the system.
Re-install the drivers according to the instructions as if you did it for the first time.

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera.

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...
