Installing a digital camera
On my Vista Home Premium PC I can't install my Sony digital camera, I
downloaded a new driver for the camera. In the folder scanners and cameras
in configuration the camera keeps showing up as a "Xerox scanner"!
Installing this camera on my XP laptop wasn't a problem.
Thank you for any help or advice.
Joan

Re: Installing a digital camera
You didn't mention the model number for your camera. Is the driver you
downloaded *specifically* for Vista?

Re: Installing a digital camera
The camera is a Sony DSC-W5 and I obtained the Vista driver from the Sony
website.
I can't figure out what the "Xerox" entry in the scanner and camera folder
means, it was already there when I opened the folder for the very first
time. Every time I try to add my camera it shows up as a scanner! and I
can't delete the entry.
I have to download the pictures I take with this camera via a picture
programme (Corel) as the normal way via the camera is not available.

Re: Installing a digital camera

Hello, Joan;

I bypassed your problem using the following steps.
(1) run Windows
(2) turn on camera
(3) plug in usb cable to computer and camera
(4) answer the dialog box to initiate the transfer.
