I'm new to this site but I have been shooting the a-700 for 4 years. I just bought a used 900 and it didn't come with a cd. How or where can I get the software to download pics to my laptopp ? I appreciate any help. Thanks, Dave
Welcome to the forum
Simply download it from the sony website in your country, though the a700 software is effectively the same.
Or use third party software such as adobe bridge (comes with photoshop), lightroom, apple aperture, etc etc.
For that matter you can just pop the CF card into a card reader and plug in, then copy over (process varies slightly depending on what OS you use)
