Help with Sony DSC-P1


#1

Salam all,

i have a sony DSC-P1 camera, its working fine under windows XP, detects automatically, but in Windows Vista it does not get recognized, it asks for the driver to be installed. i dont have any drivers with it, coz its PnP, even on sony website there is no driver for windows vista. i tried installing windows XP drivers which i downloaded from Sony website but windows vista still does not recognize my camera.

now whenever i have to download any pictures from my camera first i have to connect it to windows xp computer and download after that i copy them to usb and move them to windows vista. for that i have to use someone else's computer bcoz i have only one operating system i.e vista.

can anyone suggest any solution for my problem.

thanks in advance.
