  3. Downloading Photos from Sony DSC HX 300 Camera.

    you need to set the autoplay options to import Images and videos whenever a memory card is inserted into your computer.

    In windows 10, images and videos are imported using metro app called Photo viewer.

    To do this:

    • open settings>Devices>autoplay
    • Under choose Autoplay defaults,select Import Photos and Videos(Photos) from the drop down menu for memory card.
    • Whenever an SD card would be inserted it will import the photos automatically.

    hope it helps.

    Restore Autoplay Option: Import pictures and videos using Windows

    You didn't say what kind of Phone or Device you were using to import photo's?
    If you are using an Android phone, when you attach the phone it comes up in File Explorer as a separate drive. If you open phone drive and then browse to the DSIM folder your pictures will be there. Here you can highlight them and drag them to whatever folder you want them to be in. Or Copy and Paste

  5. Import from SD card. File Explorer far too manual.

    On my cameras [Canon] it is the DCIM Folder.

  10. Doesn't matter, this question is about using the Import function, not a manual copy.
