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

I have a sony cybershot that I have always just plugged usb port from camera directly to computer for photo transfer. But, now it won't work. Windows recognized the plug in and I selected the first option....but after that it did not prompt me further with instructions to transfer the photo's. I have never had any problem before??? Any suggestions??????


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.

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?
