PC does not see digital camera

By hdrysdale ·
I am trying to install a Sony CyberShot digital camera to a PC running Windows 2000. The camera is plugged into a USB port and the MGI PhotoSuite 8.06a software is installed. I have already downloaded and installed the needed driver for the USB portfrom the Sony website. Now the PC does not see the camera at all under My Computer, neither as a Removable or Non Removable Disk. This camera runs successfully on a PC with Win 98. Any suggestions?

Have you checked to make sure the camera is compatable with Windows 2000? Read the documentation that came with the camera for the system requirements. I know that my digital camera only works with Win 95 or 98.
Hope this helps.

I did get the camera to work with Win 2000. You have to enable the camera as a Removable disk in the PC, go to the Sony website support for further details and the necessary driver downloads.

Windows 2000, is not very good for digital cameras and many home multi-media uses. I recomend windows ME.
Windows 2000 wass developed to replace Windows NT and Windows ME was developed to replace Windows 98. Unless you are using the machine for networking (primary use) the sales person should have advised you to stay with Windows 98.

Hope this helps
