Precautions for Connecting the Camera to the Computer
• The connection may not operate correctly if you attach the camera to the computer with an interface cable via a USB hub.
• The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices, excluding USB mice or keyboards, at the same time as the camera. If this occurs, disconnect the other devices from the computer and try reconnecting the camera.

• Never allow the computer to go into standby (sleep) mode while a camera is connected via the USB interface cable. If it does happen, never disconnect the interface cable. Try to awaken the computer with the camera in the connected state. Some computers will not awaken properly if you disconnect the camera while they are in standby (sleep) mode. Please refer to your computer manual for instructions regarding the standby (sleep) mode.
• You are recommended to use an AC adapter (sold separately) when
connecting to a computer. Ensure that you use fully charged batteries if you

Downloading Images without Installing the
Software
You can download images by simply connecting the camera to a computer, without installing the software bundled on the DIGITAL CAMERA Solution Disk.
However, please note that there are several limitations.
If you use the bundled software, the following limitations do not apply.
• It may take a few minutes, after connecting to the camera, until you can download images.
• The camera information (firmware version, etc.) may not display correctly. In this case, use the software from the DIGITAL CAMERA Solution Disk.
• RAW images or JPEG images recorded at the same time as RAW images may not be downloadable with some software programs or operating systems. • Movies will not download correctly. • Images shot in the vertical orientation may be downloaded in the horizontal position.
• The protection setting for images protected in the camera may be lost when transferred to the computer. • In addition, there may be problems with downloading images or image information correctly depending upon the version of the operating system in use, the file size or the software in use.
