I am having Sony Cybershot W800 digital camera. While trying to connect it with windows 8 via usb it is showing device not recognized. Sometimes it gives code 10 error. It is working fine in windows 7. Is there any problem regarding compatibility in win-8 with Sony camera or any driver problem. Kindly suggest some way to fix this problem.
Sony Cybershot not getting connected with windows 8.
If you connect your digital camera to a computer with Microsoft Windows 8 and the device is not recognized, it is possible that the device is not supported under Microsoft Windows 8 and later. When I checked the compatibility of the camera, I learned that you are right. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 is not supported on Windows 8 as well as Windows 8.1.
Since this is the case, if you need to connect your digital camera to a computer, make sure the machine is running on Microsoft Windows 7 or earlier so it can be detected and accessed. There is a list of Sony Cyber-shot models that works on Microsoft Windows 8 and you can access it on Cyber-shot Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 Compatibility.
The model that will probably work on Windows 8 and or Windows 8.1 is the one before Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W730. It works on both Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
