Hi there and welcome

Sorry about the delay you received.

Can you tell me please which version of windows you are using?

Thank you

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am using Windows 8.1
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


Can you close all programs.

Press the windows key + X and click on Command Prompt (admin)

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator.

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /r

Press enter.

It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.

chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.

Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.

Then tell me if you still have the issue please.

Download Play Memories here and use this to access the Camera

Hi Richard,

Hi there, sorry about the delay, I had a family emergency and was not available.

If you connect the camera to another computer, is it on that computer recognized?

Hi Richard,
Sorry I was away on travel. I do not have another PC to test this but I will try with a friend of mine and get back.
