Having problems with your Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera ?

My usb cable wont connect to the computor to download my pics it s says usb connecting and tehn I get the message switch on menu?


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.
