Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera ?

When I plug in the usb cable to transfer photo's and videos to my computer, I get a malfunction message. Why?


Answers :

Consider NOT using the USB connection.\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.

Purchased a Polaroid x800 camera and can not transfer photos to computer (and I have tried 3 computers - 2 running XP Pro and 1 running Windows 7). Upon connecting the USB cable it shows up as a removable disk (G: on my computer) but when I go to open the file/drive I get a pop-up that states "Please insert a disk into drive G:". I called Polaroid and the only help offered was to take the camera back. Target gladly exchanged but I have the same issue with a second camera. Anyone got a clue?
