Customer Question

I have a Sony DSC W380 Camera. This takes excellent photos, which for a year I have had no problems downloading. Now I find that impossible - when I connect my camera to the LSD port in my computer to download all I get is a square with PMB Portable (J) on it, telling me that there is nothing to download.
I have not changed my computer, nor the lead. WHY cannot I transfer my photos as I have done many times before with this camera on this computer?
Please help - XXXXX XXXXX

And/or have you tried taking out the memory card from the camera, then insert it to the memory card slot on the computer if there is one? And/or can you get a USB memory card reader?
