How to copy pictures or movie files via a USB connection to a computer running on Windows 7

    IMPORTANT: There are a limited number of Sony cameras that do not support USB connectivity with the Windows 7 operating system and, therefore, cannot use this procedure. Check to make sure your camera is not one of the cameras that do not support USB connectivity.
    1. Turn on the computer.
    2. Ensure the recording media with the pictures or movies is inserted in the camera.

      IMPORTANT: If trying to copy files from a camera with internal memory you must remove the memory card from the camera. The computer cannot read the internal memory of a camera while a memory card is inserted.
    3. Connect the supplied USB cable to the camera and the USB input jack on the computer.
    4. Turn on the camera.

      NOTES:

      • The computer automatically detects the USB connection from the camera and installs the appropriate driver from the operating system.
      • An AutoPlay window should appear on the computer screen.
      • If the USB connection is not recognized or AutoPlay does not appear, troubleshooting is available .
    5. In the AutoPlay window, click Import Pictures and videos using Windows.
    6. In the Import Pictures and Videos window that appears, click Import Settings.
    7. In the Import Settings window, assign the location on the computer to where you want to copy the picture and movie files.
      • Next to Import images to click the Browse button and then select the desired folder (for example, My Pictures).
      • Next to Import videos to click the Browse button and then select the desired folder (for example, My Videos).
    8. Click the OK button.
    9. In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, click the OK button.
    10. Click the Import button.
