Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.
Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

I have a Kodak EasyShare V550 camera. I've had it for years and had no problems with it until recently. Now I am unable to upload photos to the computer. I've tried using Picasa, Roxio, and Windows to upload the photos, but all of them say that the memory card is empty ... but when the memory card is in the camera, I can see and review all of the photos. Could be that the camera and/or the memory card are over the hill, but I'm still hoping that I can get our vacation photos from it

Bought a direct dvd recorder Sony DRV-MC10 on Amazon.USA,namely imported from USA to Greece. I can only record fotos on the DVD. When trying to record on dvd through all input connections I get an error message''incorrect colour system''. I use PAL tapes shot on Sony handycam or video from quick SDHC memory card 16GB shot on Panasonic handycam.So my drv-mc10 is sofar practically useless.

I have a brand new PNY Optima SD card I wish to use with my easy share camera. When I insert the card into the camera it says the memory card requires formatting, then continues to say formatting will delete everything on the memory card. It repeats and WILL NOT FORMAT.
