My computer won't recognise my camera (Sony Cybershot 8.1) or the SanDisk card adaptor when I connect these to it. Last time I needed to download photos it opened the relevant program automatically.How can I gain access to either of these---I no longer have the installation CD for my camera or for the card adaptor.
Go to the Sony website, and the San Disk website. Try to look up drivers by the product model number. Download the drivers.
Install the drivers with the device plugged into the computer.
Shut off the antivirus when you install the drivers, restart the computer, turn the antivirus back on...
That might get it going?
