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

MY Sony CyberShot will not connect to the computer. I've connected it succesfully before and now, when I hooked the cord up and turn the camera on to upload, the camera says "USB Mode Connecting...Switch on to [MENU]" and I tried all three to enable it to connect and it won't.


Answers :

Try 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
