Answers :

1) Try uninstalling then re-installing your Sony software.
\015\012
\015\0122) When you connect to the PC and switch on, Click on Start - "My Computer". Your hard drives and disk drives should appear in the window.
\015\012
\015\012Have a good look, is there a new drive, it may be called Sony, or USB mass storage device it may just be called drive E or F.
\015\012
\015\012If so double click on that drive, if there's a folder there, double click on there, with luck you should see your pictures, that new drive is really your camera.
\015\012
\015\012You should be able to move pictures by copy and pasting. Once copied you can deleted them from your camera.
\015\012
\015\0123) You can buy a device called a "Memory card reader" Make sure its good for sony memory sticks.
\015\012You take you card from you camera and put it in the card reader. Then, once plugged into a USB port its just like another HDD as described in 2.
\015\012
\015\0124) I should have said this first, try another USB port if you can, it my just be dust in the port making life hard............
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Good Luck.
