Latest USB drivers installed.  Sony software can't see it.  Doesn't show up as Win device.  Only indication it's there is icon in system tray "to safely remove DSC".

Hi gtkuhrt,

Could it be possible it is there but it is getting assigned a drive letter that is already in use?

Do you have multiple HD's, CD-rom,DVD--rom, network drives?

Don't know.  How do I check.  No letters are assigned to the camera when I try to map it and camera doesn't show up as an option to connect to.  Haven't added any new drives since I re-installed.

But I asssume before you could see it in the explorer as a removable drive, with a drive letter.
Can you tell me what your drive letters are? what you could try is starting up your pc without network or cd-drives,dvd-drives

Don't remember seeing it in explorer before.  Definitely isn't there now.  Use to be automatic picture download from Image Transfer (Pixela) software.  Current drive letters are a: floppy, b: none, c: SATA RAID 0 (dual raptor drives), d: Plextor PX-708A, e/f/g: separate partitions on 200 GB SATA, h: mapped to printserver, i: mapped to Win2k machine.

Disabled all but hard drives.  Camera uses drive H but doesn't show up in explorer.  Thanks for the help.

Thanx for the points. My guess is that you could change H to J for the printerserver? Or else give J to the Camera?
