Camera Authentication

The following steps are required to add the specific features of the camera (such as AVCHD) to PlayMemories Home. If you have more than one Sony cameras, repeat the steps from 9 to 12 for each camera.

Turn on the camera and connect it to the computer using the supplied USB cable.

  • Do not use a USB hub. Connect the cable directly to the USB terminal on the computer.

When the [To use ***** (product name) with PlayMemories Home, the USB operation mode must be changed. Do you want to continue?] message appears, click [Yes].

  • USB operation mode indicates USB connection settings such as [MTP] or [Mass Storage]. This message appears because PlayMemories Home cannot import images with the [MTP] setting.

When the [Thank you for purchasing ***** (product name).] message appears, click [OK].

When the message for product registration appears, select [Yes] or [No].

  • If you select [Yes], follow the messages displayed on the window.
