    Sony Cybershot not detected under 8.1


    Ok, after playing around a bit with the new 8.1 some hardware issues come into my way:
    My Soundblaster X-FI didn't work anymore, no new driver provided by Creative Labs - replaced by working sound onboard.

    But now my Sony Cybershot DSC-W70 camera isn't detected anymore, no drive letter is assigned and since I have no cardreader I can't access the pics. Troubleshooting says the problem can not be fixed. Sony doesn't provide particular drivers for it and reinstalling the Intel ICH9 driver didn't help. Under Windos 8 it worked like a charm, 8.1 seems not to like much of my hardware. Does anybode have similar issues?
    Google tells me I'm not alone with that problem but no proper solution is around...

    Thanx for reading and commenting.

    Hello.
    I am also surprised after the upgrade to Windows 8.1.As a temporary solution to copy a photo opportunity - on the device press [MENU] and select "PictBridge" mode.

    Thanks for the hint. But as you mention, it can only be a temporary solution, since you can't maintain the drive with actions like deleting files. I hope MS comes up with an update to fix this.

    The last Windows-Update KB2911106 rolled out a fix for "2914219 USB storage device does not work correctly".
    Finally this fixed the issue. Works again as it should!
